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.

The Last of Our Kind
Award winning photographer Garth Ivan Linscott exhibits 25 portraiture and life study fine art images.

It is based upon an original short poem of the same name.
