Private Tour of exhibition: Allan Ramsay, Portraits of the Enlightenment
Monday 16 December from 6.00 p.m. until 7.30 p.m
Glasgow Art Club is pleased to offer members an exclusive private tour of the exhibition Allan Ramsay, Portraits of the Enlightenment at the Hunterian Gallery in University Avenue, Glasgow on Monday 16 December from 6.00 p.m. until 7.30 p.m. The cost is £12.00 including a glass of wine.
The programme for the evening is as follows:
6.00 p.m. glass of wine on arrival and welcome
6.30 p.m. curator-led tour of the Ramsay exhibition
7.00 p.m. time to enjoy gallery displays
7.30 p.m. end
Members should meet at the Hunterian at 6.00 p.m. Please reserve your place by putting your name in the book in the bar area of the Club. As this is not a Club event, payment must be made in cash at the bar prior to the visit or to Robert Kelsey or Efric McNeil on the night, and we are unable to charge it to members' accounts.
This exhibition marks 300 years since the birth of Allan Ramsay (1713 - 1784), whose elegant style set him apart from other portraitists of the time. Born in Edinburgh, his career took him from a small Scottish clientele to the Hanoverian court of King George III. Away from his studio, Ramsay was in close contact with a number of influential figures, and his published writing includes works on taste, politics and archaeology. The exhibition centres on a selection of portraits from across Ramsay’s thirty years as a painter and also features drawings, watercolours, books, pamphlets, and other materials which demonstrate Ramsay’s fascinating place in the intellectual and cultural life of Edinburgh, London, Paris and Rome in the mid 18th century.
The exhibition includes key loans from UK public and private collections and new research examining the intellectual context in which Ramsay painted a number of his most important portraits, including that of Hunterian founder Dr William Hunter.
GAC Christmas Film Club
Wednesday 18th December
Twas the week before Christmas and all through the Club
The members were fed up with shopping and grub
They wanted to chill out but where could they go
To sit by a fire, chat, and laugh at a show?
When a voice from the bar said 'You’ve no need to pass
You can have it all here, plus a generous glass
Of festive mulled wine with enough time to sup it
Along with mince pies and a miserly Muppet
Even Scrooge could not carp at the cost, for there’s none
Just the hope that the Club movie habit’s begun
The GAC Christmas Film Club is proud to present The Muppet's Christmas Carol on the 18th of December in the Billiard room
You are cordially invited to join us at 5.30pm for mulled wine and a mince pie, the film will start at 6.15pm (ish).
While there is no cost, we would appreciate it if you added your name to the book as places are limited.
The bar will be open as usual.
We look forward to seeing you there and hopefully if there is enough support, this could be the start of a monthly film night!

A Burns Supper Celebration
Friday 31st January 2013
7.00 for 7.30pm
£35 per person (includes 3 course Burns Supper)
“Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
And sae the Lord be thankit.”
Burns Supper 2014 will be a little different from what you may have come to expect here at Glasgow Art Club. Whilst the Gallery is under renovation we have opted to hold an evening in celebration of Burns in the cosy surroundings of the Dining Room. A slightly more intimate and relaxed affair than the usual alternation of speeches, recitations and musical interludes is in store - look forward to a twist on an old favourite.
There will of course be a formal welcome and piping in of the haggis plus some VERY special guest speakers (the full line up will be announced in due course).
Once again, places are strictly limited so please do book sooner rather than later!
Please let us know in advance of any dietary requirements
“The nicht drove on wi sangs an clatter
An aye the ale was growin better”
