Scottish Colourists Until Sun 31 May. Fergusson. Peploe. Cadell and Hunter were grouped for convenience because of their common interest in colour and free handling ofpaint and not because they comprised a coherent stylistic group. They did however share inﬂuences and from 1900—1914 they all worked in Paris. and fell under the heady sway of Cezanne and the Fauves. This exhibition is an interesting selection of their work with some fine sketches and paintings. Hunter‘s especially are full of French bohemian life and the heat and colour ofthe Mediterranean.

Art Gallery and Museum, Kelvingrove, Glasgow
Liz Ingram secured space for the special project ‘A Gala Celebration’ from the highest authority. The Lord Provost himself gave the word to a reluctant Art Gallery and Museum at Kelvingrove that an empty space be made available to Liz and her colleagues. And never mind the carpets.
Indeed the performance sounds a messy one— but in the name of art. Liz and her partnerJane Simpson of Rotating Dancers will be covered In

plaster, dried off and dance away from their shells. Keith McIntyre, a young painter recently settled in Glasgow, will be putting brush to paper as the audience filter in. That’s just for starters. This piece which McIntyre describes as ‘performance art’ also includes 300 umbrellas, a Borders’ ballad singer, Andy Hunter, and new music written by a Glasgow composer, Derek Howton.
It all started at last year’s Edinburgh Festival when McIntyre was one of the ‘artists at work’ in the Art College Show. His installation, based on a
two-year stay in the Borders town of Moffat, took the town’s Gala Week and set a silent stage in black and white. Rotating Dancers saw the piece and choreography seemed a natural step. Dancers become ‘moving sculpture’ says McIntyre.
Amongst the many meetings inherent in this ambitious performance — past and present, town and country, visual art and dance and music— Keith also points to the joining of Maytest with the Edinburgh Festival in its creation, a friendly gesture. See Listings for details. (Alice Bain)
