D&G|OUT: The Lighthouse, Glasgow
D&G|OUT @ The Lighthouse featured pieces by 17 ceramicists, jewellers, textile designers, printmakers and others with a national and international profile - all from Dumfries and Galloway or with strong connections. It ran from 31 January - 22 February 2014 at the Review Gallery, The Lighthouse, Glasgow.
The exhibition gave a flavour of the unique experience of studio visiting with a vision to inspire discussions around where and how designers and makers create their work and how they connect with the outside world.
Artists on show were:
A preview was held on 30th January with Pecha Kucha by designers Wendy Kershaw, Morag Macpherson & Suzi Plunkett
And there were opportunities to see and purchase additional work by these 3 artists.
The Spring Fling 2014 Brochure was also launched at the Opening.
An Afternoon with the Artists: 8 February 2014 1-4pm
