• Art Gallery Pops Up at Shawlands

    For the past few years the Southside Festival ran a highly successful exhibition of Fine and Visual Art in Queens Park, called Art in the Park. The success of this project led them to expand the event and this year from 10th – 26th May 2013 The Art Village @ The Shawlands Arcade transformed one of the retail units into a pop-up art gallery.

    To increase the relevancy to the local community the project combined a Southside Festival/Glasgow Life Schools initiative and displayed works of art from pupils from Shawlands and Bellahouston Academies in addition to the work of professional artists.

    A mixture of work belonging to artists from all over Europe, as well as colleges and artist networks was on display. The event was a huge success and we look forward to welcoming The Art Village back to Shawlands in the near future.
