if that proverbial fifteen minutes of fame is still proving to be a little elusive, then the current exhibition at the Granhill Arts Gallery could be the first rung on the ladder to greater recognition and future fane.
Following the success of ‘The Biscuit Tin’ exhibition in 1990, the Granhill Arts Project have come up with the return of the Biscuit Tin, or more exactly, the ‘Out of the Biscuit Tin Holiday Special’. Following the original idea of bare walls and enthusiasm, Glaswegians have been asked to rummage through their biscuit tins or shoe boxes, find their favourite photos, and bring them in to be copied and stuck on the walls. This time the theme is holidays, in particular the summer holidays which are the most photographed occasion in most of our calendars.

The organisers hope to have the walls covered by the end of the exhibition and, as an extra incentive to attract would-be cover stars there will be a competition and prizes for the best photos in the exhibition at the end of August. So don’t be shy, don your red coat or sombrero and Agadoo your way down to the Granhill Arts Gallery. I mean, if Lloyd Cole can do it, anyone can. (Caroline Ednie)
