Event Description

John Creed has been practising as a silversmith since the early 1960’s. In 1990 he extended his creative activity into blacksmithing. He taught metalwork at Glasgow School of Art. We commissioned John to create an imposing forged steel stand from which our iconic ornate gold frame is suspended outside The Gallery in 1992. We are delighted to host Exposures which is John’s third solo exhibition in The Gallery. His recent architectural commissions include the main entrance gates for Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow.


“This exhibition has been an exploration of surface rather than line. Bronze has been coaxed into shape, steel placed in the fire allowing it to become a willing partner in the creative process. Metals have been layered, bonded and peeled to expose unexpected relationships.”
