Exhibitions


My shipyard paintings were on show at Claustre St Domingo, Inca, Majorca from 17 September until 15 October 2004. They were also on tour with an exhibition initiated by North Ayrshire Museums titled “Over the Wall.” The exhibition ran at various venues in Scotland from 9th September 2001 and had bookings until April 2003.

Other exhibitors included Painters Tom McKendrick, Kenny Little, Jim Sweeney, and Willie Moran. Sculptors Roy Fitzsimmons, Stuart Orr, and Tom Mills exhibited along with Ceramicist Ken Ryan. Rock Star Kevin McDermott had his songwriting notebooks and albums on display along with a video. Another video was shown of one of Peter McDougal’s plays. All the exhibitors worked in the shipyards at some time and are all in different careers now. Fairway Forklifts Ltd. of Hillington Industrial Estate, Glasgow, sponsored the exhibition. The show was at the Lillie Gallery, Milngavie until February 12 2003. It then moved to Methil Heritage Centre,Museum of Levenmouth, Fife, from February 27 until 19 April.
