Already we are Glasgow's most popular wholefood cafe. We have upgraded and extended our facilities, offering new seating and evening meals as well as wine tastings and live music. Open from 10am - 10pm, Third Eye is also perfect for lunch, coffee or a glass of wine, enjoyed in a friendly, relaxed setting.


Our Shep Specialises in art publications, ranging from the popular to the esoteric in the visual and performing arts - cinema, theatre, literature, music, architecture and design. With a much larger Shep floor, we have added high quality contemporary arts related posters, gifts, toys, stationary and other goods, as well as an exclusive range of artist designed jewellery.

For Christmas we also have a superb collection of art calendars and Barbizon Gallery, until 3 Dec. There will be few ambivalent reactions to

Shutov’s work; you’ll either love it or hate it. Either way, you'll wish you had your sun glasses with you. The show looks badly hung, tar too many paintings; but this over-the-top presentation retlects the kitchy nature ot the work. Shutov piles on the danllng iuxtapositlons, the llourescent colours, the glitzy trinkets. In doing so (and more than any other New Beginnings exhibitor), he provokes in the viewer questions about the interaction between the West's art market and the Soviet Union. Until recently, Shutov struggled to paint in the USSR, working in the now-iamous

Artist’s Union. That changed with the 1988 Sotheby’s auction at contemporary Soviet art, where tour at Shutov’s paintings sold tor £22,330 a huge iortune in USSR terms atter the hard currency has passed through the black market. Shutov grabbed his chance and learned a pure New York visual language- a bit oi the decorative school here, a bit oi David Salle there, add a touch oi Basqulal, all validated by an interview in ‘Art in America’. . . The paintings end up vibrant, stylish, slick and fashionable- but how dated will they seem next year? (Hilary Robinson)
