Tom Allan

We are delighted to be exhibiting new sculpture by Tom Allan alongside the Joyce Gunn Cairns exhibition.

After The Carnival

Tom trained at Glasgow School of Art and also in Carrara, Italy. Sculpting since 1977, he is a regular exhibitor and prize winner at the RSA, RGI, VAS, and PAI annual open exhibitions

He is one of Scotland's most successful and well known sculptors, working with traditional materials and techniques.

Calm Head

He says, “For me sculpture in stone has been a passion for thirty-seven years. I see it as an expressive art form, shaping stone to convey emotion, as a painter uses colour and form.”

Towards The Lagoon

Tom’s work is in public and private collections in Europe, Australia, and the Americas. He has also participated in many sculpture symposia abroad, as well as organising four in Scotland. Commissions include public art projects in Glasgow and Motherwell, a Holocaust Memorial in Serbia, and the Lord Kelvin Memorial in Glasgow’s Necropolis.

He was elected Associate of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 2006, and awarded the Diploma of Paisley Art Institute in 2010.

Marble Form

 Tom works and teaches at his studio in Gartcosh and also each year in Carrara.

We have six of Tom's sculptures available until 12 October.

Thanks for reading!
