Invite from The Glasgow Artist Guild

Monday night was the first in The Glasgow Artist Guild's programme of monthly events. Each month 1-2 guest artists are invited to give a lecture on their practice, with an open discussion afterwards. Each event is free, and open to the public. The events are informal and encourage artists and creative minds to network, discuss, and share contemporary ideas, perhaps leading to opportunities in the future. 

The Glasgow Artist Guild was founded in 2014 by Samantha Madonik and Philip Gurrey, with the intention being to create a networking experience for local artists. 

Louis Skehal and Craig Barrowman were the artists giving presentations. 

A State of Place

Louis Skehal is an artist living and working in Glasgow, a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art. His latest work A State of Place, was installed in a large disused railway arch in Laurieston, Glasgow. Skehal was the first artist to display his work as part of the Artists in Arches (AIA) initiative. Other sculptural works have included a large-scale work in Easterhouse, Glasgow, consisting of two works designed to stimulate a dialogue between the Arts Centre in Easterhouse and The Glasgow School of Art, exploring perceptions of place, status and situation.

Solo Exhibition at the Pipe Factory, Glasgow

Craig Barrowman is a Scottish artist, currently a studio resident of the Pipe Factory in Glasgow. Barrowman also works developing collaborative projects and presents the work of emerging artists through the collective Stray Dog. His work was recently featured as part of Art in the Clay Pits, an outdoor sculpture trail located in Possil, Glasgow.
