The Glasgow Art Club: Established 1867
The Glasgow Art Club always welcomes New Members into its fold, and it’s not just a club solely for artists! Located in the heart of the city, The Glasgow Art Club is the private members' club with a difference. Steeped in culture and heritage, the Club has been a meeting place for generations of the city’s most innovative and creative inhabitants.
Become a regular in the fun and relaxed environment of the Glasgow Art Club and experience a better way of socialising, networking and meeting new people. With a fully stocked bar, a restaurant serving delicious lunches, two exclusive private dining/drinking/meeting rooms and our impressive Gallery space, which lends itself fantastically to regular live music events, we really do have something for everyone.

Membership is less than you might think and with reduced rates for artists, students, under 35’s, corporate and out of town members, there’s never been a better time to join!

We run guided tours of our historic building, please book via eventbrite (booking is essential, max 12 places per tour)
We also offer room hire for private groups which can include anything from corporate board meetings to venue hire for concerts or art events and private dining experiences. The Glasgow Art Club offers a stunning and unique building to host a variety of events.
Each month we feature the work of one of our Artist Members, giving them the chance to showcase their work on the Club’s website. Their work is also on display in the Club for the duration of the month.
Frank McNab is the Featured Artist for August 2019
Frank McNab lives and works in Glasgow. He was educated at St Mary’s Mixed Infants and Glasgow School of Art and his work has been used on book covers, album covers, and has featured in collections in Russia, Canada, France and Italy.
There are two main strands to his work: investigations of the urban environments and closes where he lives and the symbolic representation of ideas and literature.
The painting on display during August is called “Caledonia” and is a depiction of the personification of Scotland protecting and nurturing the creative spirit of its folk. The painting is for sale and prints are available. (Please ask at the bar.)
There are, of course, references to Robert Burns and the collection of objects on the ledge at the bottom of the picture refers to one of his poems. Can you work out which one?
