Artists show up for charity

More than 800 original paintings and sculptures by Scottish artists

The Macmillan art show is returning to the Scotland Street School in November. More than 800 original paintings and sculptures by Scottish artists will be on display, providing a huge variety of subject, style and size.

The school itself is also worth the visit as it was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and has been transformed into a museum which not only demonstrates Mackintosh’s creative ability but also what school life was like in Scotland in the 1900s.

All the artworks are available to buy at prices ranging from £25-£7,000 ($46-$13,000) and funds raised will go towards the Macmillan Chemotherapy Centre at Gartnavel Hospital. The £2 million ($3.8 million) target will go to providing state of the art treatment for cancer patients.

This year’s raffle prize (pictured) was donated by renowned Scottish artist, Mary Batchelor.

The show will run from Monday 1st November to Friday 12th November 2004 between 10am and 6pm (including Saturday and Sunday) at:

Scotland Street School Museum, 225 Scotland Street, Glasgow, G41.
