This fantastic exhibition is being held on the first floor of Church On The Hill, a southside restaurant and entertainment venue. The exhibition is part of the Glasgow Southside Fringe Festival and with 100 artists work on display in a variety of mediums it is a feast of creativity. Well worth several visits!
I was invited to take part and am delighted to be showing my collages in this wonderful building alongside some fabulous art work.
For this show, I have exhibited collages depicting the detail from ‘Greek’ Thomson’s tenements and terraces of Strathbungo, in Glasgow’s southside.
The building, illustrated on the poster, was designed by the Glasgow architect Alexander Skirving. (1849 – 1912) and was previously Langside Hill Free Church. The architect lived in the Langside area before moving to London and setting up his own architectural practice.
Skirving also designed Glasgow City Chambers and The General Post Office Building in the city centre, Great Western Road Bridge and The Clyde Navigation Trust building (now Clydeport.)
He trained with Alexander “Greek” Thomson and was greatly influenced by his style.
