A select group of tenants from the Gallowgate Studios group at East Campbell Street have staged an exhibition that is now open for visitors. Mark Campbell, Craig Peacock and John Taylor have brought together new paintings, drawings and works of stained glass across the three floors of the building. Stop by the studios at East Campbell Street, G1 5DT over the the following weekends; Saturday 8 & Sunday 9, Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 and Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 October (11am–6pm each day) or by appointment during the week.
As a student Mark Campbell studied Drawing & Painting, graduating with Honours from Glasgow School of Art in 1984. ?Since then his practice has included Sculpture and Printmaking as well as Stained Glass and Graphic Design. ?He also voluntarily ran the Pentagon Gallery and founded an experimental space called the Whitehouse Glasgow.
John Taylor was born in Darvel, Ayrshire, in 1936. He has been painting, printmaking and exhibiting since leaving Glasgow School of Art in 1959. During these 55 years of creativity the work has undergone many quite dramatic changes in content and style.
The ideas behind Craig Peacock‘s work encompass a breadth of thought which is reflective and encircles notions of time within the process of painting. Painting is linear yet past, present and future possibilities are all held in convergence. My influences have been classical and contemporary from mythology to metaphor garnering from the human experience. I use a range of materials working towards conclusions as oil paintings, though each preparatory work is a conclusion in itself. Each work forms a narrative visual diary which accumulates and inspires.
