2014, ZM Architecture
The Studio Pavilion is an addition to House for an Art Lover that offers free contemporary art in a public park, through a robust and diverse programme of exhibitions, residencies and public engagement opportunities that span art, design and architecture.
The Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover opened in 2014. Designed by ZM Architecture and linked to the Victorian Walled Garden, the Studio Pavilion is a highly significant addition to House for an Art Lover that allows us to present a robust and diverse programme of exhibitions, residencies and public engagement opportunities that span art, design and architecture. The Studio Pavilion offers free contemporary art in a public park and provides a regular programme of art activities and public courses.
During Doors Open Day 2018 Studio Pavilion at House for an Art Lover will be presenting an exhibition of new and past work by Scottish artist and designer Jimmy Cosgrove (b1939) spanning some fifty years of a vibrant career in the visual arts. Curated by Alison Harley & Fraser Taylor (The Textile Collective) the exhibition will provide a long overdue and intimate insight into the diversity of Cosgrove’s practice that reflects his immense curiosity in the exploration of ideas.
Booking not required
Car park available on site – free of charge
Accessibility: Slight hill incline to the building from the car park, single door entrance
Populated by a selection of sketchbooks; travel diaries; screen-printed textiles; posters; photographs; drawings; paintings; collage and text, the exhibition will familiarise audiences with Cosgrove’s keen observation of people and places he has encountered, all re-imagined through a personal lens imbued with spontaneous and constructed narratives. Through a series of ‘vignettes’ the exhibition will introduce audiences to the themes and style of Cosgrove’s practice – namely that of process; materials; and techniques, explored through real and imagined subject matter - and how these elements remain constant and recognisable characteristics within his substantive bodies of work.
We run art classes for adults and kids year round. Take part in free taster workshops!
