The Scotland, Northern Ireland and the On-line Guilds are looking forward to hosting the National Exhibition 2018. We are fortunate in that Strathclyde University are giving us the use of their fine exhibition space. The Scottish Universities Insight Institute, formerly the Collins Gallery in the Collins Building is conveniently located within the central belt of Scotland and is just 10 minutes away from Queen Street Railway Station and not much more from Buchanan Street Bus Station. Buses are available for the short distance from Central Station for trains coming from the south. All the facilities of a large city are to hand with multi-storey parking and a hotel adjacent to the venue and cafes around and about.
There is no specific theme for selected items for the exhibition and we hope for a wide range of submissions.
To celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the birth in Glasgow of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, an influential Scottish architect, artist and interior/furniture/textile designer, the non-juried items will be a piece of textile jewellery in the style of Mackintosh, mounted on and fitting within a 12cm square of black card.
We will prepare a list of interesting places to visit in Glasgow and more widely, textile and non-textile related.
We look forward to seeing you in 2018. Best wishes, Barbara Wright
