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 starts from as little as £9.00 per month 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.
Philip Raskin is the Featured Artist for October 2018.
Philip Raskin studied at the Glasgow School of Art. Due to his father’s untimely passing, he did not complete his course and went directly into the world of commerce, not lifting a paint brush again for thirty-five years. Upon returning to his easel, he soon established a singular, instantly recognisable handwriting and a particular gift for capturing light; it is the latter, whether consciously or subconsciously, which resonates with the viewer.
He exploits his chosen medium of acrylic paint to its fullest extent, using effects ranging from those more usually akin to water colour to the heavy impasto application of the material. The combination of the two techniques on a single canvas magically depicts the textures and indeed the very essence of his native Scotland.
Based in Strathaven, South Lanarkshire, Philip has steadily accrued a loyal band of private collectors. He exhibits regularly in London, Hong Kong and Singapore and is represented onboard P&O and Cunard. His original paintings and limited editions can be found in High Street galleries throughout the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.
