We are currently exhibiting works by James Cosgrove PAI (or Jimmy Cosgrove as he is more popularly known) as part of our four person exhibition of Ayrshire artists.
This work is fabulously original and exciting. Detail, tone, colour and energy all merging harmoniously to create dazzling works.
Jimmy is a very well-respected Scottish artist and designer who taught at Glasgow School of Art before becoming Deputy Director. He retired from academic life in 1999.

He is a now Director with the House for an Art Lover and has contributed to books on Art and Design, CR Mackintosh - and ART PARK Glasgow at Bellahouston Park, where he has a Sculpture fabricated in iron and steel titled; ‘Shipbuilding - Homage to Those Who Made the Clyde Great’.
His recent work in painting, drawing and collage is derived from travel in general and people and places in the west of Scotland in particular - including Arran and Ayrshire.
He often collects written and graphic observations in the form of short narratives often painted on postcards usually completed on location and posted home.
His work hangs in several public collections including Kelvingrove Museum and Gallery; Scottish Arts Council; Glasgow School of Art; and Inverness Museum and Art Gallery.
We are delighted to be exhibiting an artist of this standing.
The exhibition continues until 28 October.
Thanks for reading!
