Scope and content

Articles written for The Glasgow Herald unless otherwise stated.

Hand written draft copies of around 110 articles of 500-1100 word length, by Clare Henry for The Glasgow Herald, January-December 1989 with weekly Monday and Friday features, Art Review, Time Out, World of Interiors, ALBA, Galleries Magazine and Ikebana Ryussei Magazine Japan covering visual art exhibitions in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee and Scottish regions.

During the year Henry also covers art in Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Madrid. Some reviews focus on exhibitions in London at Serpentine Gallery and Tate London. 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 the opening of Barbizon Gallery Glasgow.

The reviews also cover galleries: The Third Eye Centre, Compass Gallery Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop, Fruitmarket Edinburgh (also referred to as Scottish Arts Council Gallery), Mercury Gallery and Talbot Rice, Graeme Murray Fine Art and the opening of Streetlevel Glasgow, 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 more context and opinion on the condition of funding, marketing, government policy and Glasgow’s Galleries in the lead up to Glasgow Capital of Culture 1990. Other feature and perspective pieces include, the cancellation of the Vienna 1960 exhibition by National Galleries of Scotland, the takeover row, funding and leadership of the National Galleries of Scotland, the sale of El Greco by National Gallery of Scotland, the wedding of Peter Howson and Terry Cullen, Soviet Season in Glasgow, Glasgow 1990 Build Up, Graeme Murray Fine Art at Amsterdam Kunstrai with Ian Hamilton Findlay and obituaries for Salvador Dali and William Barns Graham.

The exhibitions covered are solo shows, by artists Alf Lohr, Doug Cocker, Anthony Gormley, Andy Goldsworthy, Andy Warhol and Peter Howson and group shows for Royal Glasgow Institute.

Mayfest and the Edinburgh Festival and problems with funding are covered in detail, as is Soviet Season in Glasgow. Some correspondence proposing future articles with Ray Gard, Arnold Kemp from The Glasgow Herald and Time Out Sarah Kent.
