ARTchitecture Collage Exhibition at The Tron Theatre

The Tron Theatre in Glasgow’s historic Argyle Street is hosting an exhibition of collages in the theatre foyer and lounge areas to help celebrate the Doors Open Day Festival 2016.  The areas are connected by a corridor linking the restaurant and bar areas with the theatre entrance. It is a pleasure to be exhibiting in such a prestigious location.

On display are 8 pieces including two of the Tron Steeple. The collages also represent the architecture of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson and William Leiper.

The largest collage on display is ‘Glasgow Street’. It is situated in the lounge area of the theatre. This collage depicts some elements of fourteen of the city’s finest and most significant architecture, creating an imaginary building and illustrating the diversity of cultures and religions reflected in the architectural styles.  To assist the viewer to identify these features, a key to the building detail hangs alongside the art work.

You can view the collages at The Tron from Monday to Sunday, 10am till late, from Monday 12th September – Sunday 25th September 2016.

In the main foyer of the theatre are 4 collages including two of the Tron Steeple.
