Event info

The exhibition will include both Fine Art and Design, and aims to bring the work of recent GSA graduates to an audience who might not normally encounter it.

With work by Hans Peter Auken Beck, Philip Blaikie, Kate Costigan, Rosie Healey, Claire Johnson, Robyn McLean, Alex H Millar, Theresa Moerman Ib, Emma Reid & Lisa Schmalstich.

Dunoon is a seaside resort town in Argyll, and until the 1960's the Burgh Hall was a focal point for life in the area.  The building lay in a state of disrepair until 2009, when it was purchased by the John McAslan Family Trust and so saved from the threat of demolition.  The building is currently open whilst being restored as a centre for art and culture for the community.   The work will be shown in a newly created gallery space that recently held work by Robert Mapplethorpe as part of the Artist Rooms tour run by the Tate and National Galleries of Scotland.

There are good links between Glasgow and Dunoon, travelling by bus & ferry from Glasgow Buchanan Street, or train & ferry from Glasgow Central. The journey takes approx. 2hrs

Gallery open for viewing: 20 July - 4 Aug 2012, Thurs - Sat, 12 - 4pm
