• Shawlands Shopping Centre welcomes ArtVillage

    We are delighted to announce the return of ArtVillage to Shawlands Shopping Centre and an exciting new residency that will stretch right across the summer and into the autumn. So get your diaries out! On the First Friday of every month we’ll be unveiling a brand new exhibition of the very best Scottish and International contemporary artists, designers and makers.

    At ArtVillage we showcase stimulating, provocative and engaging new works of art by the country’s most exciting and established talent. The artwork we choose to display is not tainted by the palpable artistic hierarchy within Glasgow: it is the stuff we love! As a collection it forms a vibrant alternative to the vision of art more frequently encountered in the city.

    Alongside the exhibition spaces there is The Creation Space: a studio dedicated to creative art and craft workshops, activities and master classes aimed right across the range of technique and ability. From beginner classes to events tailored for professional practitioners The Creation Space is your chance to embark on your own creative journey this summer under the helpful guidance of some of the best practitioners in town.

    Also back is Scotland’s Smallest Cinema, with another basketful of great wee films by Scottish film makers. Nowhere else is such a cornucopia of talent crammed into such a small space!

    On top of all this we’ve introduced ArtVillage Books: the Southside’s first bookshop dedicated to the graphic novel and cartoon art.

    So drop in and check out the art, craft and design that is being made today, catch a short film fresh from post production or make something yourself and take it home!

    No visit to a Shopping Centre will ever have been so unique…

    We’re back by popular demand. Find out why!
