George's daughters presented him with his newly refurbished double bass as a special gift on the opening night of the exhibition. He was clearly delighted and gave us a wee strum!

We are very much looking forward to tomorrow night's exhibition preview, George Wyllie : A Life Less Ordinary. If you aren't familiar with his work you will be by the time you've seen this exhibition! If you know and love him already this show will be a brilliant reminder of his prolific career as an artist. The exhibition looks at both his life and his work.

'The Desert of Forbidden Art'
The Collins Gallery will be the first Scottish venue to screen this remarkable film, on Tuesday, 13 March from 6.00 -8.30pm.
Entrance fee to include refreshments:
£4, payable on entry.

During the Soviet rule, artists who stayed true to their vision were executed, or sent to mental hospitals or Gulags. Their plight inspired young Igor Savitsky. He pretended to buy state-approved art but instead, daringly rescued 40,000 works by forbidden, fellow artists to create a museum in the desert of Uzbekistan, far from the watchful eyes of the KGB. Though a penniless artist himself, he managed to cajole funds to buy the artworks from the same authorities who are banning it. Thus, Savitsky amassed an eclectic mix of Russian Avant-Garde art.

In this award-winning film, Ben Kingsley, Sally Field and Ed Asner voice the diaries and letters of Savitsky and the artists. Intercut with recollections of the artists' children and rare archival footage, The Desert of Forbidden Art illustrates a dramatic journey of sacrifice for the sake of creative freedom.

Fire and Fibre

Collaborative artworks and installations
by members of the Scottish Potters’ Association
&
the Scottish Basketmakers’ Circle

19 November – 17 December

Following the successes of experimental partnership projects by members of both groups in 2007 & 2009, this new body of work will comprise over 35 artworks in which 23 makers have collaborated to compliment and push the boundaries of each other’s practices. In response to the space afforded by the Collins Gallery, many have opted to create dynamic, large scale installations which include other media such as film and sound. Themes range from aspects of the Scottish landscape to political statements.
Individual makers will also be represented by a range of smaller pieces which will be available for immediate sale. Ideal for festive presents!

A selection of work from our exhibition 'From Quilts to Couture in Kyrgyzstan'. This exhibition has been extremely popular and will be running until the 24th of September. There are still many beautiful items available. Straight from Kyrgyzstan- we have clothing, rugs, dolls, scarves, hats, and much more. Thanks to all who made it to the symposium and workshops. All were a great success!
