Two-Step / Big 4

by Beth Shapeero + Fraser Taylor

STUDIO | 19 – 27 June 2021

Beth Shapeero and Fraser Taylor have been painting, drawing and printmaking together since 2018. They call their growing collaborative project Two-Step. Both living and working in Glasgow, they were drawn to one another’s work after noticing a distinctly shared aesthetic and process. Two-Step / Big 4 was produced during a five-day residency at Scottish Opera, making use of the production workshop during the latest COVID lockdown. These are the largest works produced to date by the duo. The Studio at the Beacon Arts Centre allows the work to be staged in a completely black space, referencing performance and stage-set and opposing the traditional gallery set-up.

Open Sat (10-5pm) and Sun (10-3pm)

FREE admission

Wall Objects II

by Rosalind Lawless

GALLERY | 19 June – 18 July 2021

"A found slide from the 80s taken by my father for the Clydebank Camera Club. A photograph sent by my sister, taken of a delivered skip for a household clear-out, unknowingly sent upside down. I knew straight away that I wanted to work with both images. I have always been sent photographs from my sister of architecture; I find this of great familial comfort. This has recently reignited ideas of memory, of place and time – the work has always revolved around a sense of history, of the spaces that inspire and the journey of making the work. Throughout this exhibition I aim to examine architectural elements alongside the familial space." - Ros Lawless

Open Sat (10-5pm) and Sun (10-3pm)

FREE admission
