Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art



We braved the snow and took Eleanor and Alex for a day trip to Glasgow for shopping and a look round the Gallery of Modern Art. Activities like this must be done in short bursts because Nick get 'Museum Fatigue' very quickly. His time limit is usually around 35-40 mins, potentially stretching to 45-50 if bribed with the promise of a coffee in the cafe at the end.

Despite the countdown element we had a nice time. There was loads of fabulous lino prints in the current exhibition. Unfortunately I can't remember the artists name. The knitted cacti are part of the permanent collection.

I used to work away in the GOMA building back when it was a library with basement storage. The Charles Rennie Mackintosh tea room interiors were all down in the basement - at that stage they were scruffy piles of wood in the process of being restored for the big CRM exhibition. My job was to catalogue the piles and see whether any bits were missing.
I love the lino print - I may pop in to the Gallery when I am next in town.
How are the hens?
