Sunday's Preview

Our new exhibition Fifty Shades of Glasgow previewed on Sunday and it went with a bang! 

Artist Carol Dewart created the fifty paintings over a period of a good few months and the result has been a fabulous variety of scenes and landmarks in and around Glasgow.

The consistency of sizing has led to a dramatic looking exhibition, each painting an individual gem.

This is the first time we have had an exhibition dedicated to the city, and it was a joy to see the reaction and to hear all the stories linked to where the paintings were depicting.

Exhibiting also is scultptor Lesley Carruthers with a wonderful collection of works in cast aluminium and bronze.

So many people came and enjoyed the opening and we have already sold eighteen of the paintings!

All of the works can be viewed on our website:  http://www.smithygallery.co.uk/currentExhibitions.htm

A big thank you to everyone who came and of course to the wonderful Carol Dewart for creating such a beautiful collection of paintings.

The exhibition continues until 12 May.

Thanks for reading!
