7th February - 28th March

This collection of artworks has been produced by 12 incredible young women. All of the art on display has been produced by survivors of sexual violence and abuse. The art was created at a weekly visual art group in the safe-space of the Glasgow-based charity SAY Women. Since May 2018, artist-facilitator Nic Dickson has worked with the young women to explore various artistic techniques, to develop skills and together create some beautiful and powerful artworks. We have experimented with a variety of mediums and artistic tools, including work in paint, ink and pastels; print-making; wire sculptures; and even plasticine models.

 SAY Artists, Friday 7th February to Saturday 28th March 2020, visit during GWL opening hours

This work illustrates the many positive impacts that engagement in art, learning and creative expression can have on recovery and wellbeing following the trauma of sexual violence. The artwork on display at the GWL has been exhibited at a number of locations in Scotland and we hope that by showcasing the artworks and reaching diverse audiences we can celebrate and share the creative achievements of these young women and ‘give voice’ to Survivors in public life.

Come along to our Spring Programme Launch on Thursday 6th February, for a preview of the exhibition from 6pm to 7.30pm.

This exhibition is free to attend and there is no need to book. For opening times see the ‘Where to Find Us’ section of the website.
