Our festival jewellery exhibition is now an established festival favourite. Ethiopian Coptic crosses, antique trade beads and Roman glass jewellery feature alongside pearls, amber and classic modern Polish designer jewellery to create an unrivalled jewellery exhibition.
This exhibition will examine the motivations, processes and benefits of collecting contemporary art through displaying works owned by a wide variety of participating collectors: from first-time buyers to corporates, and from family collections to those held by national institutions.
The artists whose works are displayed by the collectors have also been invited to exhibit new works from their studios, offering visitors the opportunity to begin – or enhance – their own collections.
Supporting the exhibition will be a programme of events involving the participating collectors and artists, in which both parties will be invited to discuss the role of collections and collectors, the dynamics of their relationship, the processes involved, the way in which collections are constructed and how people interested in buying contemporary art can plan their first steps towards building their own collection.

This exhibition of new work by Bobby Niven brings together anthropomorphic sculptures with more solemn, abstract structures, finding humour in the tension between animate and inert forms.
Made from mud, sprayed concrete and carved wood, Niven’s sculptures act as plinths for found objects and artifacts which they generously offer up to the viewer. A complex layering of motifs between prop, artifact and sculpture is repeated and distorted through scale and form across the installation, creating a conversation between the objects on display and their component parts.
The work presented here was developed during Niven’s residency at Triangle France in Marseille as part of the Glasgow Sculpture Studios exchange programme.
