Winners irom 81st Annual School Children's Art Competition Until 27 Oct. From the museum‘s inception in 1902. an area in the south balcony was reserved. for the summer. in which children could draw. The idea for an annual competition for children working within the museum was established shortly after and the competition. now in its 81st year. continues the tradition of the museum to promote and encourage children‘s art within the building itself. The museum‘s archives record an increasingly enthusiastic and growing response and entries have snowballed from approximately 100 to over 6.000 in recent years. The form. though not the objective. of the competition has changed to include the opportunity to work in 3 of the other major Glasgow museums as well as Kelvingrove (Pollok House. People‘s Palace Museum and the Museum of Transport) and the children are now free to choose their own subject. Certain subjects consistently reappear - the always popular young badger rolling on its back. for example. given a delightful free and spontaneous treatment here by 10-year old Gillian Fairley. The work on display is of an impressively high standard; all of it is figurative

and mostly the approach - a detailed and searching observation scrupulously recorded — is similar. although the media vary. Amongst the joys of the exhibition however. is the opportunity it affords to wander round the museum‘s collection and then see it observed and recorded by the children. such as 16-year old David Lee‘s Red Deer Stags with locked antlers and 16-year old Nicholas Rodgers colourful interpretation of the staircase and interior.
