Mackintosh and the Glasgow Style

On Friday 15th June, Friends visited the exhibition, MackIntosh and the Glasgow Style, in  Kelvingrove. This was a popular event since we have early entry to the exhibition and tea and a bacon roll. We were gratified that 112 people attended.

The exhibition covers not only works from MackIntosh and  “The Four” but also from embroiderers such as Anna MacBeth, artists such as Jessie M King and also from  stained-glass and furniture manufacturers.
Thanks are due to Brian and staff in the restaurant, to Catherine and staff in the shops and to Museum Staff for opening early!
It Is particularly sad that the day after such a delightful visit we had the tragic news of the fire at the Mackintosh Building at the Glasgow School of Art.
