The Glasgow Art Club & Gallery

The Glasgow Art Club & Gallery The Glasgow Art Club: Established 1867 and still going strong!

In 1893 two adjacent town houses on Bath Street were transformed by architects Honeyman & Keppie, employing Charles Rennie Mackintosh, into the magnificent Clubhouse which stands today. Over the years the Club has evolved from a world solely occupied by the Arts into a diverse hang out for artists and non-artists alike - a melting pot of people of all ages, from all backgrounds, working in all professions. Fully licensed, with food served daily in the dining room, there is also a bustling diary of events with everything from live music and Burns Suppers to artist demonstrations and life classes. There is something for everyone at the Glasgow Art Club.

Tickets are available for this forthcoming *free* talk with Glasgow based artist Hannah Lyth.

Hannah's current solo exhibition ‘Apple of My Eye’ revolves around the subjectivity of the female body.

Thursday Talks: The Architects of the Scottish Cinemas

Our next Thursday Talk takes place on 04 July:

Gordon Barr and Gary Painter are well known for their knowledge of the history of Scottish cinema architecture. On 4th July they will take a closer look at some of the cinema architects, who tended to be local ie. Scottish. In contrast, theatres were often designed by specialists from England. One of these Scottish architects, William R Glen, became the house architect for the ABC chain (which itself has Glasgow roots) so his most famous buildings are outside Scotland.

They will also look at how changing fashions, legislation, technology, audience expectations and styles of presentation have affected the appearance of the buildings over the years.

All welcome :)

Thursday Talks: The Glasgow Jewish Institute Players

Thursday 06 June, 6pm for 6.30pm

The Glasgow Jewish Institute Players was a remarkable community-based theatre group, active from 1936 to 1960, that established an ambitious new model of non-professional theatre in Scotland. Under its charismatic founder, the director and playwright Avrom Greenbaum (1903-1963), the GJIP produced a wide repertoire of work in a range of different styles that explored the diversity of modern Jewish identity – from plays that looked back to Eastern Europe and dramas celebrating Jewish life in contemporary Britain to work by American Jewish writers that explored the possibility of life in the New World. This illustrated talk will outline the history and achievements of the GJIP, and the work of Avrom Greenbaum, exploring the group’s repertoire and its links with American Jewish theatre makers in New York, before finishing by examining one of Greenbaum’s most notable productions, his 1944 staging of Ben Hecht’s The Battle of the Warsaw Ghetto.
