Annual Exhibition of Milngavie Art Club

This year, nearly 100 exhibiting members of Milngavie Art Club have their work on display.

The subjects of landscape and still life dominate the show - with some portraits in oil paint as well.

The exhibition provides a good opportunity to view new developments in the work of long established members of the Club, as well as work by artists more recently elected to the Art Club.

Visitors to the exhibition have the opportunity to choose an artwork to receive the Flora Wood Award. This Award was established by the late artist, Flora Wood, who lived near Baldernock and who was a long time member of Milngavie Art Club. The voting for this Award will take place during the first week of the exhibition.

Bearsden Art Club Annual Exhibition

Popular annual exhibition of new work by local artists in oil and watercolour, exploring the subjects of landscape, still life and the human figure.

Bearsden Art Club’s annual exhibition will be officially opened this year by well known local artist, Hamish Montgomery.

Work by nearly 100 members of the Art Club can be seen in this exhibition mounted at the Lillie Art Gallery, which opens on Saturday 26 March. The landscape of Scotland features strongly in the work of many of the artists, as well as still life compositions and also portraiture. A range of ceramic vases and bowls are also on display.

Each year, at the opening of the exhibition, Bearsden Art Club presents a number of awards to their artist members. One of these awards, the Gregor Ian Smith award, focuses on a different subject or theme. This year, the theme is leisure. A wide variety of pursuits and activities have been captured in paint, from casual walks along sunny beaches to shopping trips.

This year’s show includes work by over 40 artists from across Scotland and areas of England. Paintings, watercolours and prints by Marj Bond, Jo Ganter, James Greer, Liz Knox, Marian Leven, Iona A E Montgomery and David Smith, can be seen. Artists working in ceramic, including Louise Darby and Rosanna Martin, explore shape, form and dramatic contrasts of colour, in their vases, dishes and bowls.

Architecturally inspired work by Karen-Ann Dicken

As always, there is an interesting selection of jewellery in precious metals such as silver, as well as vividly coloured earrings, rings and pendants using glass and other materials. Glasgow based jeweller Karen-Ann Dicken’s architecturally inspired steel and gold rings, are sure to catch your attention! Julie Allison, on the other hand, has given playful themes to her designs for brooches, bangles and cufflinks. It would be difficult not to be tempted by titles such as ‘Traffic Jam’ bangle and ‘Ice Cream’ cufflinks.

Artworks exploring the use of fabrics, felt and embroidery are included from Gillian Cooper, Diana Hand, Ewa Kuniczak and Joanne Soroka. The range of works includes items to be worn such as scarves and jewellery.

The exhibition is sure to provide lots of tempting opportunities for special Christmas gifts. Everyone is welcome to come along to join the festive celebrations at the opening of the exhibition at 2.30pm on Saturday 20 November.
