Art exhibition

Please join us

Our popular art exhibition is back for 2017, featuring the work of our own very own art class.

Boat painted by our art class Marvel at some amazing pieces of art or even take one home. The original art works will be available to buy along with selected prints.

Sunday 18 June 2-5pm.
Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 June 12-6pm.

20 Crimea Street, G2 8PW.

Join us for the opening afternoon on Sunday 18 June from 2pm – 5pm and enjoy free refreshments from our pop up cafe. For an optional donation, why not enjoy afternoon tea prepared by our fantastic cookery class? The exhibition will also run on Monday 19 and Tuesday 20 June from 12noon – 6pm.

This event is free and there's no need to book. We look forward to having you join us. A percentage of the sales will go back to our artists with the rest of the profits going towards the ongoing work of Glasgow City Mission.

Parking and road closures

The men's 10k happening early on Sunday 18th will be finished and roads re-opened before our art exhibition opens so you will not be inconvenienced. There is plenty of on-street parking next to our building that is free on Sundays, and a large all-day carpark on Crimea Street.

Our art class

Our talented art class meets twice a week, with everyone working at their own pace under the expert guidance of our staff and volunteers. Many of our artists have mental health issues, and find that coming to our art classes helps them.

Producing art also helps boost the self-esteem of our artists, as they realise that they have talents and skills and can produce beautiful pieces of art which people are happy to buy.

Fiona says, "“I come to art at the Mission because I like the social aspect of it and it’s good fun. I do art because it expresses my creativity. When I do art it’s my time and I can forget about everything else for a wee while.”
