Content and Structure

Scope and content

This poster for a major exhibition of painting, decorative and applied art by the Glasgow Girls from 1890 to 1930 uses an Eleanor Allen Moore painting as the background. It was a touring exhibition by the Kirkcudbright 2000 group. Over 100 exhibits were provided by the three main Scottish collections of 'Glasgow Girls' work - Glasgow Museums, The Glasgow School of Art and the Hunterian Gallery of the University of Glasgow, and the exhibition ran from 19th Nov to 20th Dec 2010. Artists and makers represented included Annie French, Margaret Gilmour, Norah Nielson Gray, Jessie M. King, Frances and Margaret Macdonald, Jessie Newbery and many others. Several private individuals also lent significant works, many of which had never been viewed in public before. The exhibition was curated by Liz Arthur, formerly a Glasgow Museums curator, who was involved in the last major exhibition on the 'Glasgow Girls' in Glasgow 1990. She also wrote a book to co-incide with this exhibition: 'Glasgow Girls : Artists and Designers 1890-1930' (Alba Printers Ltd, 2010). The exhibition was accompanied by a series of Lunchtime Lectures.
