ARTchitecture Exhibition at the Doors Open Days Festival Glasgow 2016

I am excited and delighted to be taking part in the festival this year with an exhibition of collage work situated  in four locations throughout the city. The festival celebrates Glasgow’s architectural heritage with events, visits, tours, walks and talks being held from Monday 12th to Sunday 18th September 2016.

The collages for the ARTchitecture exhibition are being displayed at The Tron Theatre, St Andrews In The Square, Gateway Cathcart Baptist Church and Greyfriars Garden in Merchant City.

I have created new collages specifically for the exhibition venues, including artwork inspired by the plants and garden features of Greyfriars Garden in the heart of Merchant City, nestled between the buildings of Strathclyde University.
