Walking Group - Week 19: GSA

Last Wednesday the walking group had the pleasure of again visiting the Glasgow School of Art. We walked leisurely through the city center, enjoying the good weather before arriving and seeing the first exhibition.

This was a fabulous event hosting work by Friday's Aspire group and organized by volunteer Jonny Kirkwood. It featured beautiful work displayed over two rooms and we were fortunate to have two of the artists, Cameron Morgan and Doreen Kay in attendance with us.

We then went into the Vic Cafe to see Jonathan McKinstry's mural Not The Last Supper. As I remember being a huge fan of the original painting it was amazing to see it so large and perfectly recreated on the wall.

We then returned to the Reid Gallery to see SoFA Presents: East and West Walk Forward School of Fine Art. A fabulous exhibition with paintings, prints and sculptures from China. The exhibion runs until October 29th. We also were able to see an exhibit of post war print design for fabric which is in the main corridor outside the Reid Gallery.
