juniors and OAPs). £20 for the whole event. Bell’s began their sponsorship of the Scottish Open in 1986. stagingit initially at llaggs Castle. Relocatingthe tournament to the magnificent settingof Gleneagles in 1987 did much to raise the profile of the competition. and its popularity amongst both participants and spectators is now undisputed. Recently. it was voted by players as the 3rd best competition on the European Tour and crowd numbers are likely to total in excess of [00.000 for the four days. With demand for places far outstripping their supply. some of the field of 156 players have had to satisfy qualifying requirements in orderto take part. though fortunately such pressures have not been brought to bear upon the hapless Sandy Lyle. who will be looking to make the cut and proceed tothe later rounds. Nick Faldo will also be in attendance (perhaps hoping to win the affection of a Scottish audience). Ian Woosnam will be anxious to continue the recent good form he showed at the US ()pen at Oak I fill. as will Mark McCumber. who finished joint SCC()nd with the Welshman. Seven Japanese competitors will be there. includingthc three ()zaki brothers. Jumbo. Jet and Joe.

Transmission Gallery, Glasgow. After a five month absence from the Glasgow art scene Transmission Gallery is due to re-open in new premises in King Street (burst pipes and a plague of rats had forced them to abandon their previous location in Chisholm Street!) Artist-run, the new improved building has one large main gallery with a basement video cinema and performance installation area.

‘It’s ideal space,’ enthused Billy Clark, treasurer of the eight-strong committee, ‘il anyone had asked me what I’d have wanted in a gallery this would be exactly it.’

With a lack of funding for the move, the committee brought new meaning to the term ‘artistic initiative’ by carrying out the renovation work necessary for the new gallery themselves - including wiring, building walls and creating the public access necesary to pass exacting regulations.

‘We hope to consolidate everything that Transmission has done so far,’ commented Clark, ‘to do more of what we were doing before - showing work that wouldn’t normally be shown in Scotland - but on a larger scale. We will be more of a centre, a place where people organise from.’

The new gallery will open on 8 July with a private view of the first event to be held in the main ground area - an exhibition of paintings by the Glasgow-based artists Helen Flockhart and Kay Mclean (10-29 July).

Plans to fully utilise the video and performance space should be realised

Painting by Helen Flockhart in August when Transmission plays host to the Fifth International Festival

Contributions come from America, Canada and Germany and include a showing of ‘Decoder’ and a discussion by its director Klaus Maecke and a video installation from Temple of Psychic Youth.

‘We can now match the facilities of other galleries,’ aserts Clark ‘but we also offer a unique, broad-based and unconventional approach’. (Sara Villiers)
