JULY

 

This year the DAC Summer exhibition was held in the Mulberry Gallery at Weymouth Library from Monday 10 July - Saturday 22 July 2017. It was officially opened by the Mayor of Weymouth and Portland at the Preview evening.

 

A big thank you to Mary Brightwell our Exhibition Secretary and to all of you who gave up your time to hang paintings, help with advertising, stewarding and lots more. We had lots of visitors and some very positive comments. In total 294 votes were cast for Favourite Painting of the Exhibition.

 

This year the Presidents Cup for the most votes went to Jackson Venables with his stunning piece entitled Grandad. The Edward Grassby Cup for a watercolour of a Dorset Landscape was presented to Sue Stone and Simon Simpson was awarded the Rebecca Freiesleben Trophy for Abstract/Contemporary work.
