The photograph as document and as art form - from street photography using the i-phone, and cameraless image-making, to landscape and still life.  The themes embraced include new topographies, the search or yearning for home, as well as insights into the everyday, both the extraordinary and the banal.  The works celebrates to some degree the technical and material properties of photography.

The exhibition includes Paul Walton, Zoe Hamill, Colin Templeton, Natalia Poniatowska, Alex Burch and Geneva Sills.  All of these image-makers are connected through their work to Street Level’s facilities, either through making the work there or in having had a platform for their practice

Robert Macaulay Stevenson – the last Glasgow Boy

Robert Macaulay Stevenson (1854 – 1952) was a resident of East Dunbartonshire (Bardowie).  The Lillie has a small collection of his work and this exhibition will display them together for the first time.

Stevenson is recognised as one of the ‘fathers’ of ‘The Glasgow Boys’ and is usually credited with coining the name. He outlived his contemporaries and died at the age of 98.

Light Stream

A joint exhibition exploring light and it's effect on defining and shaping our world.

Artists Peter McNair and Lynn Howarth have studied the effects of light and how it falls, wrapping itself around surfaces creating shadows and reflections. They hope their studies and close observations help reveal the true beauty of their subjects
