Glasgow Print Studio A dark narrow stair in unassuming King Street does not prepare you for the new Print Studio Gallery opened in time for Maytest. Arch and pillar, gauzy blinds printed with the gallery eagle, pale wooden ﬂoors and open space give it the air of Manhattan, no punches pulled. In the old gallery, the Studio was made comfy by a set of unusual wooden chairs. Here, it’s plush window seat

Piecing Togetherthe Past L‘nril 3n .lune. A celebration of I)“ years of archaeology in
now, atiust overall, a veteran ot eighties’ tigurative style. Wiszniewski was a regularvisitorto the ‘old’ Ingram Street Studio, where he truittully began to divert his painting skills into print. This exhibition is a canny mix of small etchings, large painted drawings, monoprints and oils, with a giant 4-piece woodcut at the door extending that diversity lurther.
Energy and confidence charge Wiszniewski's work. In two large paintings heavily worked sections contrast with parts not touched -the young artist seems impatient to move on and boldly leaves gaps. But his subjects are more reluctant. His boys and girls are still ‘Peter Pan' grown-ups. One such couple has a
child — a small version at them. The boy ‘
in ‘Arcadian Landscape' passes through a bright paradise and becomes a thinker. ln ‘Silent Mutations' the adolescents struggle with their changing surroundings. Wiszniewski attempts to underline his work with meaning. But tor rne, permanence ol meaning is lost in his sophisticated mannerism. The small less-worked etchings and monoprints combat that studied approach and illuminate a less-selt-conscious side to the artist. (Alice Bain)
