This renowned cooperative of established and emerging artists has been promoting the arts in the west of Scotland for more than half a century. Exhibiting for the first time at the New Glasgow Society gallery in Finnieston, the show will include an eclectic mix of painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography. 

Established in 1958, the Glasgow Group was formed by three students from Glasgow School of Art who wanted to improve exhibiting opportunities for emerging artists in the west of Scotland. From its inception, the Group has been run by and for artists, with a policy of enabling both younger and lesser-known artists to exhibit their work alongside more established artists in venues that might not otherwise be available to them. Throughout its history, the Group has played a prominent role in progressing the careers of numerous local artists, many of whom have gone on to gain national and international acclaim. In accordance with its constitution, members of the group must have a connection to Glasgow, either through birth, training or residence. Currently, the Group comprises eight artists at differing stages of their careers and practicing in a variety of media, Including painting, printmaking, sculpture and photography. 

Each year, the Glasgow Group stages an exhibition in the city. And this year, for the first time, the New Glasgow Society has kindly offered its gallery space as the venue. The society exists to promote and encourage public interest in the beauty, history and character of the city and the Group are delighted to have the opportunity to showcase their work with such a vital organisation. The show runs from August 25th to September 2nd with an Opening Reception on Thursday August 24th from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. We are thrilled to have Anda Paterson, one of the founding members of the Group, exhibiting with us this year. In addition to the framed works on display a portfolio of unframed works will also be available..
