With 70 members, some 55 of whom could be classed as working sculptors,
Clarke, one of the studios’ seven directors. ‘The show is just part of our general aim to raise the profile of sculpture. Hopefully it will reflect the benefit of the studios‘ existence, the way everyone is galvanised into energetic production just by being in the same building, sharing the same creative atmosphere. We plan to have similarshows to this inthe future involving selectors from outside the studios.’
Funded by the Scottish Arts Council, GDC, the Gilbenkien and Henry Moore Foundation the studios were, at their inception 12 months ago, one oi the only two lacilities in Scotland for sculptors outside at the Art School (a third has since opened in Edinburgh). The other was Aberdeen’s 10 year old Lumsden; Clark outlined the difference in intent ot the two establishments. ‘Lumsden has no artist-tenants; you basically go there tor a (usually short) period at time to carry out a specitic project. This place (088) is broader in quality with lots of different people constantly coming and going.‘
This flow of people and accompanying interest is, the directors suggest, a sign that sculpture‘s current renaissance is in fact at its most intense in Scotland. (Stewart Hennessey)
Glasgow Sculpture Studio, The Shed, Glasgow. The Shed, on Blackfriars Street in Glasgow. will, for its swansong, play host to a selection of works from the fledgling Glasgow Sculpture Studios. Intended as a showcase torthe remarkable success of the studios, the sculptures will be chosen by Bruce McLean, the celebrated Scots-born performance artist-cum-painter- cum-sculptor who is now based in London (responsible for, among much else, the giant slide projection show at the opening of the Tate in Liverpool). The range of pieces originating from the studios have mostly modern influences but go right across the spectrum; from figurative, large set pieces to abstract works, using clay and plasters, stone, wood, resin, crisp pokes, metals and bean cans. Their many achievements include Jim Buckley lifting second prize in the newly-established and highly prestigious McGrigor Donald national sculpture awards and Tracy MacKenna's work being bought by the Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
how well represented can all the
studios‘ output be in just one show? “Well. there‘s no Glasgow Sculpture
