Cove Park is pleased to host Scotland’s Travelling Gallery on Saturday 7 October, from 11-4pm, and to present a special event with the artist from 2.00pm.

Travelling Gallery’s autumn 2017 exhibition is by former Cove Park resident Lauren Printy Currie in partnership with Glasgow Women’s Library. Lauren works in sculpture, writing and installation creating assemblages that hybridize the material and psychological qualities of objects.

The exhibition derives from a residency at Glasgow Women’s Library where the collection and archive served as a repository from which the artist drew material and inspiration to make a new body of work for the Travelling Gallery. Exploring feminist self-organising and economies of production, this work endeavours to respond to the materiality and immateriality of the archive as an entity constantly in flux, which adds to, performs, removes and reconfigures its contents. The artist considers experiences that have been marginalised and explore the defining principles of the creation of cultural archives.

Join the artist at 2pm at Cove Park on Saturday 7 October for a series of readings, acts, exchanges, and felt proximities exploring material existence as something pliant and paradoxical.

Bookings can now be taken for our autumn 2017 Prepare Your Portfolio course!

Creating and compiling a strong portfolio in support of your application for an arts or design based higher education course is essential! Your portfolio needs to showcase your creative skills, ability and range of practice. This is a three day course for young people in years S5 & S6 or above (the minimum age is 16). Led by former Cove Park residents designer Laura Lightbody and visual artist Douglas Morland, participants will be introduced to a broad range of exciting activities aimed at developing their hands-on skills, as well as promoting creative initiative. The lessons planned will cover a selection of approaches including working in sketchbooks, large-scale drawings, and 2D/3D outcomes, with a focus not only upon materials and experimentation but upon encouraging the development of the students’ own personal visual language and interests.
