‘Designer' muttered a middle-aged visitor to her companion at this exhibition. ‘This is what the kids are falling for’ and they moved on, unimpressed by a striped shirt by French fashion guru, Jean-Paul Gaultier. Others however were more impressed, comparing many of the clothes displayed to their own. “Perhaps I should have mine made in something like that’ enthused another visitor, admiring a lavish piece of styling by Zandra Rhodes.
This is an impressive and interesting show, put together at the last minute when a scheduled exhibition had to be cancelled, and well tailored to Glasgow’s fashion conscious image. It explores the links between pictures and the clothes shown in them and paintings, portraits and photographs are shown alongside hats, costumes, shoes, rugs, embroidery and fabrics, mostly from the 19th and 20th century. What it lacks in argument it more than makes up for in scope and detail and almost nothing has been overlooked from lavish Bakst drawings to Paul Smith socks. Well worth a visit. (Sally Kinnes)

PRIMED FOR POLIICS
Beth Shadur, Gateway Exchange, Edinburgh
An Bit by 20ft panel may not seem a very large space on which to portray the problems of contemporary Britain, but that is the task American artist Beth Shadur and various drug groups in Edinburgh have set themselves.
The panels can be split into five separate paintings to make it possible to take them on tour buttheir permanent home will be somewhere in the Gateway Exchange. The Gateway invited Beth to come and work in Edinburgh following work she had done at the Special Unit in Barlinnie Prison.
‘In the States now, community arts have become much less political and more decorative as things get more and more Right Wing. It‘s a difficult time to work there in anything like this,’ says Beth speaking between priming the panels in a temporary studio in the old washhouse, next to the Gateway. She has worked in the field of community arts for over15 years, and her interest grew out ofa movement of

in Chicago her home town (Chicago Artists Abroad have financed hertrip to Britain). Now the political emphasis in this field seems to have shifted to this side of the Atlantic and the controversy over the poll tax is just one of the issues which will feature in the panels.
In the States, Beth divides her time between commissioned murals for private and public clients, projects with community groups and her own watercolour paintings. Some ofthe latter are on view in the Gateway's smart and freshly painted café.
They are highly detailed and complex pictures. ‘Everyone keeps saying how colourful they are. I guess people here aren't used to bright colours in art, but Chicago is well known forvery colourful work.‘ She sees no contradiction between the colour and what is often a much darker or painful subject. ‘I don'tthinkthatsomething that has painful or difficult imagery necessarily has to be painted in a way that looks brutal and violent. Sometimes that contrast can give it an added meaning.‘ (Sally Kinnes)
