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.”

Photograph Opportunity Saturday 7th September 2019

Stage one of the 2019 OVO Energy Tour of Britain will see the world’s top riders tackle a 201-kilometre (125-mile) opening leg from George Square in Glasgow city centre to the town of Kirkcudbright in south west Dumfries & Galloway.

The opening stage on Saturday 7 September will complete a loop of Glasgow city centre before heading south through Renfrewshire, East Ayrshire and South Ayrshire before crossing into Dumfries & Galloway.

While September 2019 is the ninth occasion that Dumfries & Galloway has welcomed a stage finish of Britain’s biggest professional cycle race, it will be the first time that the event has visited Kirkcudbright.

Stage One

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.

 

Library Exhibition

We currently have two displays of our members work at Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs Library till the end of the month. There are a wide range of pictures from nature, portraiture and landscapes on display, so why not pop along and admire our hardwork from last season.

spcposter2019

The Scottish Photographic Circle exhibition starts the Auld Kirk Museum’s
exhibition programme for 2019.

Since its inception in 1907, the aim of the Scottish Photographic Circle, a
small group of dedicated photographers, has been to promote the art of
contemporary and pictorial photography in Scotland.

The quality and diversity of subject matter in this year?s exhibition
suggests that the present membership is continuing to succeed in the
achievement of this objective.

Hope you can manage along to see exhibition which runs from 9 Jan – 9
Feb 2019.
