Highs & Lows

Two Glasgow artists, Julie Arbuckle and Yvonne Taylor, celebrate the diversity of Scottish landscape through their paintings. From airy mountains to ancient woodlands, both of these artists relate to the land in uniquely sensitive ways. From the Highlands to the Lowlands, high places and hinterlands, this is a celebration of the variety of Scotland's natural places.

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
