Gracefield Arts Centre
Free to all
indicates offers with National Art Pass
Set in lovely grounds by the River Nith in Dumfries, Gracefield Arts Centre offers a changing programme of art and craft exhibitions, events and activities.
The exhibition programme focuses primarily on contemporary art but also features exhibitions selected from the Gracefield permanent collection. The collection features works by Scottish artists, or artists with Scottish connections, and dates from the 1840s to the present day. Throughout the year, Gracefield runs adults' and children's weekend art classes and operates a small printmakers' workshop.
Look out for The Wild Escape at museums and galleries in the next few months. Many have special events, or you can use our audio introduction to help children get involved at any cultural venue.
Visiting with children?
Use our audio introduction to inspire a visit to any museum, gallery or historic house local to you. Then, just send us your child’s animal artwork when it's finished and we'll add it to the epic collective artwork that launches on Earth Day 2023.
The more you see, the more we do.
The National Art Pass lets you enjoy free entry to hundreds of museums, galleries and historic places across the UK, while raising money to support them.
