Dunkeld Cathedral Annual Art Exhibition, Gothic Parish Hall, Dunkeld
(21 June - 30 August 2018)

Now in its 48th year, the Dunkeld Art Exhibition has been running for 10 weeks every summer to raise money for the upkeep of Dunkeld Cathedral.
Artists from all over the UK show paintings, prints and sculptures and the exhibition attracts some 10,000 visitors each year. This will be the first year I have submitted works for exhibition and sale.

In 2017, over 460 pieces of work to the total value of £34,300 were sold, generating a donation of £9,000 to Cathedral funds. The exhibition takes over the 19th century Gothic Parish Hall, the Duchess Anne, which provides an attractive venue for some 400 works of art on display at any one time.

Dunkeld Cathedral
The history of Dunkeld can be traced to the ninth century when it emerged as an important religious centre for the early Celtic Church. No building of this period survives, the present Cathedral dates from 1318. Partly destroyed during the Reformation (1560), the choir is roofed and now serves as the parish church for regular Sunday worship.

The rest of the cathedral is ruinous, but is preserved as an Ancient Monument in the care of Historic Scotland, who are also responsible for the grounds.
