From the Dorking Group of Artists:
The Dorking Group of artists is an association of both full time professional and serious amateur artists. The Group’s annual exhibitions are an established part of the local calendar and have become an eagerly anticipated event.
The partial lifting of lockdown and the re-opening of Denbies Wine Estate, albeit with restrictions and safety precautions has meant that the autumn exhibition is now planned to go ahead, but with an intriguing twist – what will be unique and unusual this year is that people will also be able to view and purchase from the exhibition concurrently online on a dedicated website www.dga.gallery which will launch on 1st October 2020 whilst visitors to Denbies will be able to view and purchase the actual paintings in the Denbies Gallery from Tuesday 6th – Sunday 11th October 2020, 10.00am – 4.00pm. You will find Denbies Wine Estate at London Road, Dorking, Surrey RH5 6AA. There is plenty of free parking.
Visitors to both the virtual and the physical exhibition will be able to view, browse and choose from 100 original works of art – in addition, purchasing could not be easier with fast and secure online payment. With the focus this year on affordable art, we are also offering free local delivery.
On a note of reassurance, there will be stringent precautions in place at Denbies with hand gel dispensers at various points of entry, including at entry to the exhibition, social distancing, clear signage and the requirement to wear a face covering, to ensure everyone’s safety.
Art takes on a completely new dimension and value in such uncertain and troubled times – it brings happiness and possesses the ability to uplift, intrigue and inspire. We therefore hope you will be able to join us in October, whether in person or online.
