Glasgow Society of Women Artists: Annual Exhibition, Mitchell Library, Glasgow.
The annual exhibition of the Glasgow Society of Women Artists may have a particular poignancy in City at Culture year. Bravura, charlatanlsm and the
ubiquitous ‘Glasgow Boys’ have to a great extent confirmed the myth oi Glasgow's culture, past and present, as being essentially masculine. The exhibition (which this year includes works from the San Fransisco Women Artists Group) belies the achievements ol the group, which has exhibited annually since its lormation in 1882 under the name ‘The Glasgow Society
oi Lady Artists’. Given this long distinguished history (complete with premises on Blythswood Square) the Society’s present ambitions seem modest.
Although the Society clearly consider their work as part oi the Cultural Year celebrations, their exhibition and presence within culture in the City remains anomalous. The group had dililculty finding a venue, and their situation on the lourth floor at the Mitchell Library is inappropriate. The viewer is distracted by ugly screens and gaudy carpeting. The enthusiasm oi the member selectors has led to the inclusion 01155 works, and the Committee, to their credit, appear happily oblivious to the divisive boundaries that determine ‘art' and ‘crait’. The exhibition includes ceramics, iewellery, batik, painting and printmaking.
Louise Annand, painter, filmmaker and President ol the Society stresses the benefits ol the venue. The society’s archives are lodged in the Glasgow Room, and in fact the video, lasting 90 minutes, that has been made available to the society does prove to be crucial in the attempt to contextuallse the history at the Society and oi particular women artists and writers.
Sheila Whimster, Secretary, remarked - ironically, in view at their history-that ‘women are begining to hold their own.’ In contrast to the status that their San Fransiscan counterparts enjoy-with a permanent base lor the society, a new exhibition each month, etc— it might appear that the Glasgow Society has tailed to improve opportunities lor exhibiting. However, their longevity, and the conlidence and congeniality conjured up by the exhibitors, validates their work. (Adele Patrick)
The exhibition travels to Paisley Museum and Art Gallery 25 Apr-17 May.
