Linda McCartney Exhibition – Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

The exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, which runs from 5 July 2019 until 12 January 2020, is curated by Sir Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney.

“It features iconic names and moments in music from the 1960s, along with more intimate and emotional later work by this acclaimed and prolific photographer.

Sir Paul McCartney said: “It is really good having this exhibition in such a cool gallery in Glasgow.

“The whole family loves to honour Linda’s work – she would have loved this because Glasgow was a place she loved.

“She loved Scotland because it gave us a lot of fond memories, a lot of freedom and a lot of happy times.

“It is nice to have all of that encapsulated in the Kelvingrove exhibition.”

New Season

Monday 2nd September we will welcome back members to the new season with an informal club night.  Our first night of the season will be an opportunity for members to showcase some of the pictures they have been taking over the summer recess.

All pictures should be a maximum of 1600 x 1200, 96dpi, and can be brought along on the night on a disk or memory stick. This can also be a slide show or members can give a little talk on each picture.  Volunteers are asked to note their intent to provide pictures to Lynne Watson in the first instance so that we can gauge numbers.
