Roger Billcliffe Gallery
Some wonderful updates from the Roger Billcliffe Gallery in Glasgow.
The yearly “Postcard paintings” exhibition in the Billcliffe Gallery took place in November 2018 and was in aid of Diabetes Scotland. Roger and Michael and Lynn had been very kind to put some of my paintings in the main room, and three were sold on the opening night!
Oh, and for the flyer to advertise this exhibition, the gallery had decided to use my small painting with the Delft’s Blue vase.
Funny thing happened, incidentally. While I strolled about and stopped in front of that small painting, a gentleman came up next to me and asked: “Do you like that painting?” “Why, yes,” I replied, “I painted it.” “How nice,” he then said, “and I just bought it!”
The other surprise was that, after I walked in to the exhibtion, Lynn gently urged me to browse the upstairs floors. When I did, I suddenly stood facing a wall with four of my paintings on it! And beautifully lit, too. Wow. Moreover, Michael had added my own page on their galley website, and all this really made me feel welcome and an established member of the group of contemporary professional artists they represent. It’s a great feeling.
About the Roger Billcliffe Gallery: this is “Scotland’s largest private gallery, occupying five floors of an early 19th century building in the heart of Glasgow. The Gallery opened in 1992, taking over the building formerly occupied by the Fine Art Society plc where Roger Billcliffe had been Director since 1979. The Gallery now specialises in exhibiting the best of Scottish contemporary and 20th century painting.”
