STREET WISE MAIN MAN
Main Fine Art, Glasgow A boisterous Sunday open day has tinally put the Main gallery out onto the
: streets. Now, at Number 32 Gibson
3 Street, Michael Main has two line
; windows at shop level to display
5 paintings which he hopes will catch
many eyes on that busy West end road. ‘l‘d like to move the pedestrian
crossing up just a little,‘ he rallies in response to the idea. Idle trattic is always a good catch.
Joking apart, Main makes it quite clear that not just the commercial aspect ot the gallery interests him. For live years now, the Main Studio Gallery up the close at Numbertﬁ, just along the street, has provided young Scottish artists with the opportunity to exhibit, regardless oltheir saleability. Artists now well-known like Phil Braham, Peter Howson, Gwen Hardie and Ian Hughes showed with Main early on in
the gallery‘s lite and their careers.
Artists have always worked on the premisestoo. Originally a studio tor his colourist, painting sister, Lesley Main, the studio gallery sits in the middle at several tlats, all rented as working space tor artists.

The studio gallery has a touch ol the crow's nest about it, cosy and comlortable to visit. Main is reluctant to part with his first space and intends to continue his promotion of younger artists and one-man shows there. With twenty years service in the merchant navy behind him, Main looks more the sell-styled seaman than ever, sporting regulation beard and jersey.
But downstairs the spirit is a new one. Now a listed building, the old chemist’s shop with its art nouveau tittings is painted elegantly in a perfect cream which is at once comlortable and sophisticated. Here, Main will
