October 2019

I am honoured to be selected as Artist of the Month at the Prestigious Glasgow Art Club with its newly restored Charles Rennie Mackintosh Gallery.

The Club, established 1867, has had a multi million pound renovation:

"The Gallery has been completely refurbished. It was stripped back to the brick work, earth floor and the roof removed. It was rebuilt, repaired and restored to its original."

- Celia Sinclair, Trustee of the Glasgow Art Club and  leader of the renovation project- Founder of the Willow Tearooms Trust

The Glasgow Art Club, 185 Bath Street, Glasgow is open to the public and I must also highly recommend another historic venue on the Mackintosh trail - the original ' Willow Tea Rooms Trust' which is just around the corner at 217 Sauchiehall Street.. the afternoon teas are second to none!

Riviera paintings by Scottish Artist Peter Graham go on show in the Saint-Tropez Lounge Club of The Capitainerie, Quai de l'Épi, Saint-Tropez Port

A changing display of  recent paintings by Peter will be a new feature  of the magnificently appointed Saint-Tropez Lounge Club of The Capitainerie . Peter was  official artist of Les Voiles Latines Regatta in 2018. Anne-Marie Dandin, Head of Communications at the Port invited Peter to be part of the new face of the Port of Saint-Tropez with the opening of the Lounge Club of The Capitainerie. The Lounge is inspired by the great period of transatlantic shipping and affords spectacular views of the historic town and  the port entrance.

The Mackintosh Legacy

In designing the Glasgow School of Art , architect and painter Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868 - 1928) embraced every aspect of the space, including  moving between rooms. Flower alcoves were built at the entrance to each painting studio, with instructions for stems to be placed daily. Mackintosh saw the vital connection between nature, harmony and mood for the aspiring artist.

The devastating fires at the Glasgow School of Art touched many people not least the painters and artists who went through the famous doors.

Here are some images of the Art School:
