Seeing Things trip to Joan Eardley at Clydebank Museum

Today GWL’s Seeing Things group went to the Joan Eardley exhibition at Clydebank Museum and Art Gallery. It’s a fantastic exhibition, and we really recommend people try and pop in and see it. It’s such a rare treat to see a lot of her work hanging together. We had a fantastic tour, and found out so much about her and her work.

Seeing Things group members chose their favourite works from the show…

Mary Alice really enjoyed this picture of a kitchen stove:

I like its history. It seems familiar to me and the colours are really homely and warm.

Jane really like this image of the Sampson Children. Eardley is well known for images like this of children from the East End of Glasgow.

I like the subject matter of young people in Townhead. I used to work with people in Townhead, providing education opportunities. It reminds me of the community and I love the style of painting and use of colour.

Linda liked this study of a tree by Eardley.

I like nature, and I like the colours in the picture. It looks like it’s in full bloom.

Anabel: I like it because it’s not like the other work I’ve seen by Eardley. It also reminds me of my Granny’s old range in her kitchen

Mags chose a Catterline landscape by Eardley as her favourite

I like the frenetic energy of these pictures. It doesn’t seem abstract to me – it seems to capture the scene perfectly. The colours are absolutely amazing.

 

Seeing Things would like to thank the staff and volunteers at Clydebank Museum for a fantastic tour and very warm welcome. We highly recommend people try and catch the show before it finishes in October.
