Wasps Artists' Open Studios Weekend


I would like to invite you to the annual Wasps Artists' Open Studios Weekend.

I will be spending the weekend in my Studio (122) at the Briggait, and hope you can pop in.

The opening hours are:

Saturday 2nd October 11am - 5pm
Sunday 3rd October 12noon - 5pm

The Briggait is a magnificent building by the River Clyde that served as the city’s fish market for over 100 years, but following its recent transformation, now contains 45 studios.



For more information about the Briggait please visit www.thebriggait.org.uk

Hope to see you at the weekend.

Pound Gallery

I have recently contributed work to The Pound Gallery.

POUND GALLERY is an enterprise for losing money. The gallery retails second-rate products of emerging artists for next to nothing. The prices cannot cover even the manufacturing costs of the works, let alone the gallery space rent, promotion or transportation expenses. Pound Gallery seeks to increase accessibility of contemporary art by making it affordable to everyone.

THE POUND GALLERY COLLECTION consists of flaws and byproducts of creative processes: proof-prints, sketches, experiments etc. All the works are original, authorized and signed. Pound Gallery celebrates imperfection, looking to reclaim the uniqueness and presence of a product through its defects. At the moment the Pound Gallery catalogue includes over 300 works.

HELSINKI-BASED Pound Gallery is yet to have a permanent location. Before opening in late 2010 or early 2011 Pound Gallery is looking to further enhance its collections.
