Last night I attended the opening of the Glasgow Art Club’s Summer Show (opened by guest Prof. Richard Williams OBE, who spoke enthusiastically about re-integrating art and science). I have a couple of paintings in the show – “Transition” and “Liathach Clearing” – it runs until the 5th of August at 185 Bath Street, Glasgow.
