The Glasgow Girls

This major exhibition of paintings, decorative and applied art by the 'Glasgow Girls' (1890-1930) was a touring exhibition by the Kirkcudbright 2000 group. Over 100 exhibits were provided by the three main Scottish collections of 'Glasgow Girls' work - Glasgow Museums (Glasgow Life), The Glasgow School of Art and the Hunterian Gallery, University of Glasgow. Artists and makers represented include Annie French, Margaret Gilmour, Norah Nielson Gray, Jessie M King, Frances and Margaret Macdonald, Jessie Newbery and may others. However, many private individuals have also lent significant works, many of which have never been seen in public before.

This exhibition was curated by Liz Arthur, formerly a Glasgow Museums curator, who was involved in the last major exhibition on the 'Glasgow Girls' in Glasgow 1990. She has also written a book to co-incide with the exhibition : Glasgow Girls : Artists and Designers 1890-1930, Alba Printers Ltd, 2010, ISBN: 9780 9551 63876 

This exhibition was accompanied by a series of Lunchtime Lectures.
