AccessArt, a service operated by Turning Point Scotland, is transforming the old Baker’s Oven shop on the High Street of Dumfries with fantastic, unique and original Art works, many of which are for sale.

These are original works produced by people with learning disabilities and autism. Janet Wright has kindly allowed here own original to be displayed online.

AccessArt provide a wide range of therapeutic arts and crafts sessions throughout Dumfries & Galloway.  With a creative team made up of fully qualified artists they offer sessions and workshops at one of our three studios, within a community setting or within your own home.

The aim is to introduce develop creative opportunities, facilitate self expression through the use of a wide range of art materials and build confidence.

The Christmas exhibition is made up of the creative achievements of AccessArt participants, reflecting the diverse interests, skills and talents of each individual artist who attends the project.

It is open from the 10th – 17th December from 10:00am – 5:00pm daily, excluding Sunday 14th.

Steven Burnie senior co-ordinator, AccessArt said:

“Our Christmas exhibition is a highlight of the year, it’s a chance for everyone involved in the project to come together to share and show their art work. This year at the exhibition we are showcasing the many projects we have delivered and the designs and art works produced for a mural we will be installing at Dumfries Train Station in the Spring.”
