Gallery Refurbishment.

The Gallery at the Art Club is temporarily closed to allow for much needed refurbishment and restoration works. 

Refurbishment of the Gallery is scheduled for completion by October 2014, and the main contract by the end of December of that year. All other principal rooms of the Club are currently still in use by the members.

The building contract was awarded to W. H. Kirkwood Ltd. of Greenock. W. H. Kirkwood have successfully completed several historic building projects. The Design Team is led by MAST Architects.

The replication of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh frieze in the Gallery is a main feature of the project, and of national importance. The contract for this work has been awarded to Nevin of Edinburgh who recently restored the ceiling decorative scheme at Stirling Castle. The design for the work, based on CRM’s sketches, is being undertaken by Chris Allan, formerly Deputy Director of the Hunterian Art Gallery, and has been assessed by a panel comprising Roger Bilcliffe, Professor Pamela Robertson of Glasgow University, and one of our members, Dr. James Macaulay.

There will inevitably be some degree of inconvenience to members during the progress of this essential work, but the Trustees are confident that once completed the building will be there to be enjoyed by both members and visitors for many years to come.
