Each month we are featuring the work of one of our talented Artist Members, giving them the chance to showcase their work on the Club’s website. This month we are featuring the work of Anthony Armstrong.


Banchory, Still Life, 22”x28”, oil on canvas by Anthony Armstrong
Artist Member of the Glasgow Art Club


Anthony Armstrong is a prolific painter who attended the Glasgow School of Art (1953 – 57) under David Donaldson. His work covers a wide spectrum. Portraiture and landscape, with cityscapes being of special interest - still life's and places where people come together in the streets and cafe culture; an abiding interest in the human figure and an understanding of human nature.

"As a child I was encouraged to make pictures. My imagery comes from life experiences, from recollections of my past, stories my mother told, religious inspiration and my rich cultural heritage. For better or worse these aspects of my life have become the foundation of my art. The cultural inheritance brings a diverse richness to my art and provides me with an instinctive working process. I then translate these experiences and diversity into visual expression. My interest is not only in conveying to the viewer my personal feelings, but also our common humanity.”

An exhibition of Anthony Armstrong's paintings "Anthony Armstrong Exhibition" was recently held in the Glasgow Art Club from Friday 13th May to Thursday 9th June.
