A pop-up art store will set up in Finnieston this weekend.

A palette of leading artists is coming together to stage the event at 1184 Argyle Street.

More than 180 pieces of art will be on offer over the weekend – Saturday November 17, 12-9pm & November 18, Sunday 12-6pm.

Art work and artists

For sale: Jamie Johnson, Still Life.

Glasgow artists including Ciara Phillips, Henry Coombes, Erica Eyres, Michael Fullerton and Jamie Johnson will be showing works with prices ranging in price from £50 to £1500.

Many of those involved have shown in the likes of The National Gallery of Scotland and V&A Dundee.

The event has been organised by Glasgow-based online gallery FromtheStudio.art to mark its first full year of trading.

Artist and founder Helen de Main said: “Our aim is to inspire a new generation of art collectors and art-lovers by exposing people to great art at great prices, to live with the art they love and support artists livelihoods.”

She said: “We are passionate about promoting contemporary artists whose practice is excellent in terms of execution and whose work is informed by current ideas and ultimately says something powerful and relevant about the world today.”

Artwork

For sale: Alexa Hare, ‘Gone to the Shops’

Members of the public can expect to find a range of contemporary visual art at affordable prices.

Works include original drawings, paintings, ceramics and limited edition screen prints.

Marking this special birthday, the gallery have also announced that they will now offer Interest Free Credit through the UK wide Own Art Scheme – making artwork even more affordable.

Previously-unseen artworks will also be available at the event by two of the newest artists to join the From the Studio collection, Lorna Robertson and Catherine Street.
