“A Sense of Place” Art Exhibition, New Glasgow Society
New Art Exhibition “A Sense of Place” showcases three different perspectives of the places dear to us.
What do you call an artist, a poet and a glass sculptor in one room? Outrageously talented. Actually these three artists are not only talented, but are friends and neighbours too.
Sketch artist Liz Reid, Yorkshire poet and painter Mary Thomson and Glass artist Catherine Lowe all live in the same apartment building in Glasgow. They come together in their new exhibition ‘A Sense of Place’ this weekend at the New Glasgow Society in Kelvingrove. All three artists take their creative inspiration from the places near and dear to them.
A Sense of Place
For Liz Reid who is based in the Barras, this is her Glasgow, the people, architecture and environment of the city. From her Yorkshire roots to her firm sense of place since moving to Glasgow, Mary has reflected the change in country and culture in her words and paintings. Meanwhile glass artist Catherine Lowe is inspired by Scotland’s natural light effects and stunning landscapes, in particular the Hebrides.
The joint exhibition will see Liz’s drawings of the West End’s teuchter pubs – The Ben Nevis, The Lismore – as well as some other famous West End spots to look out for. Catherine’s beautiful Hebridean inspired glasswork will sit alongside Mary Thomson’s inspiring words on Glasgow, poetically reflecting our beloved City and Scotland as a whole.
The pop-up exhibition runs for one weekend only on the 2nd and 3rd September 2023. The show will include original framed drawings and paintings; glass panels, vessels and jewellery; poetry, prints and postcards. All work will be for sale.
This is sure to be a memorable exhibition so get the date in your diary!
