Whether you are an established artist, a budding talent or an art enthusiast, becoming a member of the Glasgow Art Club offers opportunities to showcase your artwork, attend unique events, have fascinating talks, and connect with like-minded individuals.

Our impressive Gallery space represents the best of Scottish contemporary art for sale. It is host to a diverse and innovative range of exhibitions including the Scottish Portrait Awards,  the Paisley Art Institute annual exhibition and the Glasgow School of Art. It also lends itself fantastically well to regular live music events, we really do have something for everyone!

Founded in 1867 by a group of amateur artists, the Club grew quickly to include many notable artists (including James Guthrie, E. A. Walton, and several other Glasgow Boys),  the Club is housed in a historic building, adding to its charm and character. One of its notable features is the Gallery added to the two original townhouses in 1893 and designed by the famed Glasgow architect John  Keppie, who employed a then-young Charles Rennie Mackintosh to undertake aspects of the detailed design. Mackintosh's distinctive style is evident in the design, making it a notable highlight for art enthusiasts and visitors.
