A Good Week

We have had a great start to our annual Affordable Art Show this week.

This exhibition comprises smaller works by many of our favourite artists and I think lots and lots of sales should be acknowledged and are always worth celebrating.

You Can't Lose What You Never Had by Ashley Cook

This is the first time we have exhibited screen prints by Ashley Cook.  They are really quite beautiful.  Two are already off to good homes.

Red River by James Cosgrove PAI

I am a huge fan of James Cosgrove PAI.  Once a tutor and Deputy Director of the Glasgow School of Art, James' style is one of intricate design, but also of vivid expression.  I'm really glad to see work like this selling.

Sweet Peas by Neil MacDonald PAI


The tender brush of Neil MacDonald PAI couldn't be resisted by one of our regular customers.  Neil is well known for his perspective-defying landscapes, but this little flower painting has all the gentle tonal quality that Neil's work is known for.

Best Friends Forever by Stanley Bird

Stanley Bird's paintings have been selling very well with us.  People love the delicate detail of his animal and bird subjects paired with bold and flattened, colourful backgrounds

Perfume Bottles by Jane Charles

Of course the applied arts are always a great hit during The Affordable Art Show.  I have to say we are almost running out!  Sculptor Tom Allan has sold most of his pieces, as has glass artist Jane Charles.  Lesley Carruthers, who works in metal is also a big hit.
Well done to all the artists who have already sold works, but it's only week one!  This exhibition runs until 24 February.  There's more on the exhibiting artists on the website:
Thanks for reading!
