Thanks to everyone who came, saw and bought at the DAN Christmas Art Fair.
It was great fun to chat to people, show our work and sell some pieces to the lovely Dartford public. A huge thank you to the Priory Centre for hosting us and for being such a great continued supporter and collaborator.
Every DAN member with a stall sold something at the fair, with Pete and Mihaela selling a full painting each and Pete getting a portrait commission! Sam’s balloon animals were a hit with the kids, Sue and Nicola’s crafts went down a storm and Kate’s abstract works gathered some interested visitors.
We had a number of people who asked when we would be back, so we’re hoping we can do another Priory fair before next Christmas…watch this space..
Seeing as our Christmas Art & Craft Fair was so much fun last year, we’ve decided to do it again! ??
SAT 30TH NOV at the Priory Centre in Dartford
DAN members will be showing & selling our crafts & artworks.
That’s Christmas shopping sorted, with affordable art by local kent artists!?
We have some very exciting plans for 2019, with around 5 projects in the pipeline!
We will be starting to send out information about what’s coming up very soon, but in the meantime, if you would like to sign up to our mailing list for more information you can do so here.
We would also love for you to join us as a member! You do not have to be a professional artist – a love of/interest in art and a willingness to get involved in boosting the creative aspects of the local area are the only things you need 🙂 If you are a professional artist, however, we can help you with becoming involved in/organising local exhibitions and events, making useful local contacts and engaging in professional development opportunities.
We at DAN believe everyone has an artist inside them, so if you are interested in exploring your artistic side in more depth through community projects, group exhibitions, and a whole host of other opportunities, do consider coming along to one of our monthly meetings. We invite new members along to our Creative and Social Meetings (which we alternate with our more administrative Business meetings).
Our next Creative and Social meeting will be in the first week of April, then first week of June after that. Email us at
to find our where and when to come along, and keep an eye out for what we have coming up this year.
Love DAN x
Don’t miss our next Dartford Arts Network members’ group exhibition, opening at the Mick Jagger Centre in Dartford on the 1st December and running through Christmas to the 3rd Jan.
The exhibition will feature works by 12 local artists, varying sometimes drastically in medium, theme and imagery. We decided as a group that enforcing a theme would restrict our artists, and that an open show this year would give people the chance to submit a range of art works which convey the topics and issues which inspire them each individually.
The majority of original works in the show will be for sale, as well as limited edition art prints, postcards and notecards also available – Christmas is just around the corner and original, local art makes a wonderfully unique present!
Our Private View takes place on Sat 2nd December 6-8pm in the Mick Jagger Centre foyer; please do come and join us, meet the artists and get a sneak peek of the works before the exhibition really gets going. We often sell a lot of works at the private view, so come along to avoid missing out on your favourite!
Until then… catch the current show at the Mick Jagger Centre, held by our fabulous DAN member Kemi Adeyeme-Wilson (Art4Happiness) and running until our show goes up on 1st Dec.
