The hugely successful Summer Exhibition is returning to the Sir Peter Blake Gallery for another exciting display of exceptional art created by local people. 

Now in its fourth year, the Summer Exhibition has established itself as a great opportunity for emerging and established artists to showcase their work in a public gallery. Whether you’re a professional or amateur artist, this is an open exhibition where everyone is welcome to enter.  

Dartford Council want this to be another show of art in different mediums, styles and subject areas – and to celebrate once again that Dartford is home to outstanding artistic talent.
