It is the latest event at the newly-renovated club building on Partickhill Road since it opened its doors to the community.

The clubhouse’s long room with its natural light and open walls has made it a popular space to display art.

Bruce Finnie, at By Distinction Art, said he was delighted to be collaborating with the club.

“We are delighted to support them in this way to hopefully attract potential new members for them.

The Partickhill club has been carefully renovated to retain its original features and serve as a community hub once again.

The clubhouse, which opened in 1905, is surrounded by Glasgow tenements and remains a real oasis of calm in the West End.

Since reopening, the club has staged a number of public exhibitions and events involving local art groups and schools.

This summer the clubhouse hosted live music with rock/folk artist Martin G Stephenson.
