To mark Glasgow Women’s Library’s 21st anniversary, the Library commissioned 21 women artists and 21 women writers to create new work inspired by items and artefacts in our collections. The artworks are currently being displayed in the 21 Revolutions exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy during the Edinburgh Art Festival, from 19th July until 8th September.
One of each limited edition will join the GWL Archive Collection, while the rest are being sold to raise money for the Library. While the exhibition is taking place at the Royal Scottish Academy, please contact the RSA about sales.
