Bank Street Gallery

Bank Street Gallery Contemporary art gallery situated in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland Bank Street Gallery was established in 2005 in Kirriemuir, Angus, Scotland. Gallery owner, Susie Clark, created the gallery as the result of a vision for a centre of excellence based in the East of Scotland, following her experience in exhibiting prisoners' art in her law offices.

Over the past decade or so the gallery has exhibited many artists - local, national and international - almost all as one man shows. The scope of the gallery has developed and now hosts genuinely acoustic gigs, poetry recitals, book launches and play readings in its tiny, intimate setting.

When the sun shines and friends are all smiling, time slows a little. Reflection seeps into the consciousness. Today those reflections include thoughts of Miss Irenie Rose. She brought her own version of magic to the Gallery last night and wheedled her way into our hearts. Just as well she’s heading for a run at the Fringe next . . . in case you’re curious or need a top-up!
Special thanks to Irenie’s prompter; a little bit of audience participation he maybe wasn’t anticipating when he arrived but key nonetheless!

Woohoo! Miss Irenie Rose is a-coming . . . only one more sleep! A Scottish singer/songwriter with more talent than you can shake a stick at and still be left whittling! Her lyrics are as pithy and telling as a haiku . . . but Let’s (Not) Go Swimming Instead - come and meet her!

Who’s loving the Proms? We are! And there’s a little bit of real music in the Gallery this weekend. Those in the know will appreciate that our actual promenading will be a little space restricted but Miss Irenie Rose is the perfect reason to make the effort! Real, completely acoustic music making - ahhhhh! 😍

Sometimes we meet people who leave us wondering - in a pleasant way. It’s certainly been true of our time with Leslie Martin. Her work, how she talks about it, how she worries about it, resolves her own thoughts; these things have a powerful influence. Mostly we’re left with questions. Why this, why that? Often there’s no clear answer; there just is. But the great thing about just is, is just that! Noticing what’s happening around us creates perspective. Taking time to look around us slows us down, feeds who we are (giving us time to choose who we want to be rather than constantly reacting in the heat of the moment, turning into someone even we don’t like!) and sets us up again for the next adventure. Thank you Leslie!

Stop Press! We’ve been having a bit of a time of it at the Gallery this year. You’ll have guessed this, given that we first posted news of our workshop this coming Saturday with Friday’s date! For the avoidance of doubt, it is this Saturday! However, due to circumstances beyond our control, we’ve decided to make it a drop-in event. All are welcome; you won’t need any kit. Our current artist, Leslie Martin, will be there from 11.00am until around 12.30pm. She’ll be on hand to guide and encourage us. Come along and be inspired!

18/06/2018

Happy Monday everyone!
Since we’ve all succumbed to the new data protection regulations, we’ve decided that we’ll no longer (for now) email news of events at the Gallery. So stick with these updates please!
Meantime, tickets are on sale (£10) for the incredible Miss Irenie Rose! She’s doing a unique acoustic set on Friday 29th June. You’ll love her! (We do - and we know a few folk who do too!)

Feel Good Festival at Bank Street Gallery, Kirriemuir

As part of the town’s second Feel Good Festival which was inaugurated last year, Bank Street Gallery, in Kirriemuir, hosted an exhibition by young students of the Fairlie House Community Art Group. Work across many mediums by around a dozen contributors, averagely aged around fifteen, was seen in public for the first time. But more was afoot than at first glance.

An opportunity to ‘join in’ the creativity afforded Susie Clark and her young staff a self selecting group of unsuspecting guinea pigs. “Anyone who knows me knows my passion for creativity – and its importance in our lives for mental wellbeing and social cohesion. These are big claims, I know, but this weekend gave me a chance to assess whether there is any truth in my hypothesis.”

Croy Langlands and Rachael MacIntosh, both students who man the gallery at weekends, were in on the action. As visitors popped in to take a look at the exhibition, they were deployed to chat and encourage involvement in a bit of doodling or origami. Left to their activity, Croy and Rachael would return to chat as soon as it looked as though the visitors were about to leave. The in-house detectives were looking for key words which would disclose how those who had participated in a little creation were feeling – both before and after the activity.

“The results look promising but still need to be statistically analysed to assess whether the trend is significant or just a fluke”, Susie commented. “But it looks as if the hypothesis may well hold water; there was definitely a transfer from a negative emotional articulation to a more positive one, but there is a whole tranche of other variables to look through first and discount. I’m not sure the research at this stage would reach the publication standards of the British Psychological Society but it may be enough to put together an application to funding more robust research!”

One thing is for sure, visitors to the Gallery over the weekend would have undoubtedly been impressed by the standard of work exhibited on the walls.

The show runs until this coming Sunday 25th February.

Check the website for opening times and why not pop in and feel good?
