Wasps Open Weekend

Date: Saturday 1st October - Sunday 2nd October
Venue: W.A.S.P.S Factory, 77 Hanson Street, Glasgow, G31 2HF

As many of you will know, I have been attending life drawing at Wasps Hanson Street studios now for at least five years.

This year the friday group are putting on quite a show, with most of us exhibiting at least two works. There promises to be a some studio-based works and paintings, as well as life drawings - which should ensure a wide range of styles and subject matter!

We will have a clothed model in the room for most of the day, so everyone can have a go. Work will be also be available to purchase.

Opening hours - 11am - 5pm, Saturday 1st October
12 noon - 5pm, Sunday 2nd October

Further information is available on the WASPS website.

Tease Exhibition at Virginia Gallery

New exhibiton opening today at Virginia Gallery" - a new venue for me. Fiona Wilson asked me to put a few small things in, as there are 4 big walls to fill. I am actually quite excited about seeing five of my works up together - especially as it will be the first time I've displayed my little ink and watercolour life drawings in public. And, of course, seeing Fiona's work is always a pleasure.

The first image is also the first that I did at All The Young Nudes, way back in February - it has become quite a favourite on Flickr, so it will be interesting to see the response to the real thing.
The opening party will be on the 23rd, so anyone in Glasgow quite welcome to come along - the gallery is below Luke and Jack's, which sells fancy condoms and such like, so be warned. The two chaps who run both the shop and gallery are absolutely lovely though, and quite welcoming - this may well be that the start of a long and hopefully fruitful collaboration!
