? tor a year. This week they step out : iront, each presenting his or her own
exhibition idea ior public consumption. Meg Mitchell, Sheena MacFarlane and James Gallacher belong to a unique scheme. Last year, iorthe iirst time in Britain, the EEC agreed to iund a training programme lor exhibition organisers in conjunction with Strathclyde University, to which the Collins is attached. Tessa Jackson, curatorol the Gallery, was the prime mover in securing the money which
the gallery and the trainees that it is to be repeated ior at least two more years. Applications are already 5 flooding in tor the '86/‘87 intake (only 5 two places next time round). Solar Ms Jackson has received nearly 400, with , more expected (the closing date is F mid-September). The three exhibitions sharing space ; are very different in character. James E Gallacher looks at the past on the i streets in ‘Sculpture Dbserved', the
2 artist in architecture. A Victorian city oi
wealth and importance, Glasgow is rich in architectural stone carving. Atlantes strain under pillars at St Andrews Halls, putti are put to work die-stamping on the Bank at Scotland iacade and cherubs read all about it with the wise owls oi the Evening News building. A map has sensibly been included in the exhibition Ieallet to direct you to the more important sites. The secret is to look up.
Meg Mitchell looks to ourluture, the artist and conservation. She has selected iour well-known photographers to illustrate the theme ‘Disturbed Ground’. Keith Arnatt’s Forest series shows trees under attack, a war zone. The iorest is empty but the neglect, the litter and the bulldozer tracks are all too obvious. John Davies‘ quarries show man-made erosion with mini Grand Canyons cutting away at the English countryside.
Finally, Sheena Macfarlane looks at the iunnies today, cartoonists in the news. Seeing them out of print in her
exhibition ‘Comic Features' provides
the opportunity to compare the
diiierent branches at humour,
(Graham’s big-eyed Fred Basset the bound, now internationally syndicated, is worlds’ away lrom Turnbull’s sharp political satire tor the Glasgow
Herald), and to examine the drawing
skill which has been pertected for speed. Cartoons often have to be
produced within hours at an initial idea ; s in orderto be up-to-date. (Alice Bain) ;
