RGI Open Annual Exhibition

rgi1

This year’s Royal Glasgow Institute open Annual Exhibition is held at the Mitchell Library, on the first floor. I was fortunate enough to get two pieces in it this year so I went along to the ¬†opening on Saturday and was blown over by the quality of the work. It is a lovely selection of exciting, contemporary work, I felt honoured to be a part of it.

My work can be seen at the top right in this image, it’s titled ‘Trongate’. The other image is called ‘Glasgow bridges’ andit’s one of my favourite pieces of mixed media work, with watercolour, pencil and screenprint. It can be seen at the top right of the image below.

It’s a nice change to go through to Glasgow from Edinburgh for the day, it has such a different vibe to Edinburgh, it feels more like a big city, it’s just so much taller, the architecture more modern and more people. In some parts it reminds me of Sydney. George square is looking stunning with all the Christmas lights going up. Well worth a visit! The exhibition runs until the 27th November!
