An exciting two-day exhibition, food and heritage event celebrating Scottish novelist Naomi Mitchison over two days at The Briggait in Glasgow.

Join the Clyde Fishermen’s Trust, Wasps and the artist Rhona Taylor for a two-day art, food and heritage event to the life and work of Scottish novelist Naomi Mitchison within the historical setting of the Briggait in Glasgow which served as Glasgow’s largest fish market for over 100 years.

Naomi Mitchison was a Scottish novelist, poet and playwright whose vast body of work spans an entire century, jumping between an array of genres and formats. Her work was ahead of its time, exploring themes of self-determinism and equality across gender, race and class.

Multi-disciplinary artist Rhona Taylor has been working with different groups across the west coast of Scotland to create artwork which responds to the themes present in Naomi Mitchison’s life and work. Rhona’s work includes installations, painting, printmaking, photography and sculpture. Before studying painting at Edinburgh College of Art, she worked for several years as a newspaper journalist, and all of her artwork is strongly rooted in stories and storytelling.

Rhona has used the work generated within the workshops she has led across the west coast of Scotland, as the basis for an exciting exhibition of works. Alongside this, there will be a range of stalls from the west coast communities to which Naomi Mitchison belonged, including cooking demonstrations, performance and local crafts.
