    We are delighted to host the AlterForum Exhibition at Gallery 966, from Monday 2nd September to Saturday 7th September. With shared food and beer and beer tasting events included, we’re sure this is going to be a little bit out of the ordinary…

    “Throughout the course of 2013, a fluctuating group of 12 artists met under the name AlterForum. Following a series of potluck dinners, we discussed the evolution and purpose of participatory art and socially engaged practices in the contemporary art world. The works in this exhibition reflect upon the ways in which those discussions are related to or have altered each artist’s thinking and/or practice.”

    Monday 2nd September:
    11:00 – 6:00 Opening event

    Tuesday 3rd September:
    1:00 – 03:00 An Attempt to Feel Freer by Sarah F. Maloney

It’s been an incredible journey and we’ve met some fantastic people along the way. We’ve learned a lot, made new friends, had many laughs together, and we’d like to share this final evening of film and music with you to round off our project…

    Last week was the final week of our Jewellery Making Courses at Ibrox and Cardonald Libraries. “Aw so soon – was that really 8 weeks?” you say. I know, I know – it just flies by when we are concentrating and creating! Everyone produced fab results across a wide range of techniques including wire-work; cords & multiple strands; macrami; wire-wrapping; using findings; and most importantly, everyone finished an item to be proud of each week. I love to see all the imagination at work when everyone works on the same technique and yet all the pieces are SO different at the end. Stella, I’m with you on the black and glam look; Kate went delicately boho and Laura broke away from her addiction to pink (proof below!).

    Sometimes life throws curved balls and for whatever reason it’s hard to get out the house without a reason – – our full house continued to the end so that’s good enough for me. Well done everyone! Glad most of you are trying another crafty session at our “Home Sweet Home” crafts week – look forward to seeing you there!

    “Aw can’t believe next week is the last week – just when you’re getting to know everyone!” “I feel like a jeweller now!” “The time has flown by – what will we do on Tuesday afternoons now?!”

    I agree folks – the time has truly flown by. It’s great getting to know everyone. We may be working away creating another masterpiece but there is still chat about 25′ hedges; knees; weddings; kitchen fitters … what can I say – we can multi-task right! Check out our results.
