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.

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.
