Salt ‘n’ sauce or salt ‘n’ vinegar? Weans or bairns? Rebus or Taggart? A pint of Tennent’s or “You’ll have had yer tea?”. Yes, the East vs West divide between Glasgow and Edinburgh is a well-established divide in the centre of Scotland. And, through birth and life choices, I have always come down firmly on the side of the Glasgow – the city that smiles better. But now I have shattered that wall with exciting new gallery representation in Portobello. And, as if that wasn’t enough Scottish geography, I also have news about Paisley, another Caledonian culture centre. All aboard the newsletter express.
First stop, this weekend. Are you busy? I know you have your Zoom-Zumba on Saturday morning and you’re meeting your pal in the park to try out those new umbrellas. But maybe I have a better offer. This weekend opens the new Winter show at the illustrious Lemond Gallery in Bearsden and I am delighted to be once again showing with them. It’s all very safe and practically dripping in hand gel.
