Warsteiner Exhibition, WASPS Gallery, Glasgow Garden Festival
Business sponsorship is a beast with many heads these days, but one of the most popular ways to give away money to the arts or sports tor that matter is to raise a competition.
Warsteiner Beer (a German company) have done just that at the Glasgow Garden Festival. With a total purse of £1000 artists were attracted to submit to an exhibition which has eventually been hung (after some false starts in one of the restaurants on site) in the WASPS Gallery at the Craft Village. Dorothy Black (her work is pictured here) was the winner of the £500 first prize with a picture which lends itsell to summers, gardens and sunny mood. Evelyn Wright took the second (£250) with a dark, mysterious landscape drawing. While most of the submission came from Glasgow, Dorothy is an Edinburgh artist working at the Patriothall studios. This week she is also showing paintings at the WASPS Gallery at Patriothall. See Festival Art, Scottish section for details.
