IOTA EXISTS TO PROMOTE & TO ENCOURAGE ENGAGEMENT WITH THE ARTS AND CREATIVE INDUSTRIES. Thank you for your support.    

Now/Next: 

CROSSING: 22 May - 2 JUNE

Saturday 26 May: Artists Talk @ 4pm followed by Private View.

10 years of meeting, making and exploring the boundaries of warp and weft.
From the freshness of first experiments, through developing technique and an emerging ‘voice’, each weaver’s journey is shown by a retrospective collection of tapestries.
14 artists, 14 outlooks, passion and palette. Paths crossing, converging, responding. Images of love and admiration, of landscapes dark and dense, scoured, vast, worked and wild.

Louise Martin, Judith Aylett, Lorraine Darwin, Alan Gilchrist, Eileen Hughes, Libby Hughes, Susan Hunt, Daphne Kirk, Robin Low, Margarett Maxwell, Gillian Morris, Gill Owen, Mhairi Stewart, Jan Watson Crossing

Richard Walker attic goes boom

iota proudly presents recent work by Richard Walker

Walker’s recent work is based on complex studio installations and attempts to investigate human vision and representation in its full complexity. Many of the newer paintings have a panoramic format and make reference to cinema, both in terms of spectacle and in the way the image emerges from the dark.

People/Place

Emma Crichton+ Ian Graham+ Laji Varghese:

A group exhibition featuring work by three photographers with Glasgow connections, People/Place presents contemporary photography in a Scottish and International context. Uncontrived, natural reality and vulnerability is portrayed by all three artists in these works about people and place. Portraits, still lives & landscapes, with links to Glasgow, The Forth, Galicia and Himachal Pradesh, together these works suggest that we may all have more in common that we realise.
