This afternoon I found myself suddenly deciding to abandon my plans and instead of driving into town my car sort of took control and drove me to the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery. I’ve done five blog postings so far on the Gallery and I’ve visited four galleries already this month. So why? A whim, no less. Albeit it’s two years ago since my last visit here. Anyway when I arrived and immediately found a parking space I knew that the afternoon was meant to be a success. I started with the first floor gallery and was astonished by how many things I was noticing that had not registered with me before. Add to that the new exhibitions and this became very exciting. At the end I decided to see if there was a book on the Scottish Colourists but instead I inadvertently found my way into the Glasgow Boys Exhibition without realising that I’d gone in via the exit. After a while I realised what I’d done and after a short but wonderful taste of things to come made my way out again. I shall go back one day soon when I have more time and pay my entrance fee (the Gallery is free but some special exhibitions are charged for) and spend the time the exhibition justifies.
Over the next while I shall post on the visit but here’s a few photos to be going on with:
And that, dear reader, is all I have time for tonight. But there will be more, a lot more, of far greater interest I promise you.
