Scope and content

Articles written for The Glasgow Herald unless otherwise stated.

Hand written draft copies of around 100 articles of 500-1100 word length, by Clare Henry for The Glasgow Herald, January-December 1988, Art Review, ALBA, Galleries Magazine and Ikebana Ryussei Magazine Japan, covering visual art exhibitions in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling and Scottish regions. During the year Henry also covers art in Los Angeles, Yugoslavia, Siena, Venice, Dublin and India.

Some reviews focus on reviews of exhibitions in England, mostly London at Marlborough Gallery, Serpentine Gallery and Tate London. There are also reviews and features on the opening of Tate North, Liverpool. A number of the Scottish reviews are for exhibitions at former galleries: Main Fine Arts Studio Gallery Gibson Street, New 57 Gallery, 369 Gallery, Scotrail Exhibition Centre and JD Kelly Gallery, including a feature on Scottish Arts Council funding cuts at Compass Gallery. The reviews also cover galleries: The Third Eye Centre, Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop, Fruitmarket Edinburgh (also referred to as Scottish Arts Council Gallery), Mercury Gallery, Talbot Rice, Graeme Murray Fine Art, Kelvingrove (also known as Glasgow Art Gallery), National Gallery of Modern Art Edinburgh, Royal Scottish Academy, People’s Palace Glasgow and Hunterian Gallery Glasgow, and artist led galleries: WASPS, Collective Edinburgh and Transmission.

During this period Henry gives context and opinion on the condition of Glasgow’s Galleries in the lead up to Glasgow Capital of Culture *1990. Other feature and perspective pieces include: Richard Demarco, Fiona McLeod as new Fruitmarket director, Prince of Wales visit to The Glasgow School of Art, BBC week of British Art, McLellan Galleries refurbishment, Edinburgh International Exhibition and interview with Andy Goldsworthy. The exhibitions covered are solo shows, by artists Marie Barbour, Sol Lewitt, Mario Merz, Jacki Parry, Peter Howson, David Mach, Lucian Freud, Henry Moore in India and group shows Glasgow Photographers Group, New Scottish Art, and Old Master Paintings from the Thyssen Collection. Mayfest, Glasgow Garden Festival, Polish Realities Season and the Edinburgh Festival are also covered in detail.
