The Big G - Glasgow 2014 countdown begins

Quench that thirst at Drygate

Hooray for sunshine in Glasgow! Beautiful blue skies are here – so get out in it. But where? At  Drygate – Glasgow’s newest craft brewery.

Haven’t heard of it? Gasp! Crawl from underneath that rock immediately and come into the light. Literally. It has a brilliant outdoor area that offers up good times – and as of late, glorious sun.

But this cool East End hangout isn’t just a pretty space, it also serves up scrumptious food and an impressive selection of spirits and beers, including their own brew.  The staff are super friendly and it’s also dog friendly so bring along your hairy friend. As well as the two-legged bearded one –  lots of beards on show too.

But enough talk. Sometimes pictures say it best. And so, we give you Drygate:

Take the time for GSA

The Glasgow School of Art degree show launches this weekend – the event that almost never was. In light of the tragic fire, it’s a much more scaled down version. Each Fine Art student will exhibit a single image that they only had one weekend to prepare.

The Glasgow School of Art degree show  - 2014Some students lost all their art work; others have work that may be salvaged.  But when they submitted their showcase image, they didn’t know what state their work was in.  The potency of each image submitted is still to be revealed.

Images might range from elements of planned degree show work to hurriedly created emergency art. And while this showcase can never replace the  commitment and artistic vision every student poured into their projects over the past four years, it certainly stands as a marker combining art and history that must be seen.

So just don’t feel sad about the loss. Go, appreciate and show your support.

See the showcase from 14-21 June at The McLellan Galleries (Renfrew Street entrance). 10am – 5pm.
