    Do something pretty while you can.

    I moved to Glasgow from Phoenix, Arizona to study at the Glasgow School of Art and graduated with a degree in painting and printmaking in 2010. Currently I have a studio space at Ironbbratz Studios in Merchant City, where I am also on the committee for our small artist-led gallery, the Telfer Gallery.

    In my time at the Glasgow School of Art, I came to discover just how vibrant and industrious Glasgow’s art community is. In my hometown – one of the United States’ largest cities – gallery spaces are few and exhibitions are infrequent. Support for emerging artists is limited, at best. Knowing all this, upon graduation I decided to stay here in Glasgow. Here was a valuable community: fellow art school alumni, opportunities to show work in spaces like The Glue Factory, Transmission, Studio 41, The Briggait, resources like Creative Scotland and Glasgow-based arts social network Central Station, thousands of events to attend and countless peers as devoted as I am to the arts.

    As it stands, Glasgow is an incredibly nurturing environment for the early-career artist. However, most of the opportunities I have had in my first year and a half after graduation would not have been possible under the new public entertainment licensing legislation. It is my deepest concern that this law will destroy the foundations of Glasgow’s flourishing arts community.

    The effects this legislation will have on emerging artists will truly manifest themselves in five, ten, fifteen years time. The loss of today’s pop-up exhibitions and not-for-profit galleries may not be felt by Glasgow City Council but what must be remembered is that artists such as Karla Black, who both represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale and was nominated for the Turner Prize just last year, had humble beginnings such as ours, showing her work in small flat exhibitions.

    The Glasgow City Council must be forward-thinking. The future of this city’s ‘miraculous’ art scene is in imminent danger. Save the small gallery, the artist collective, the pop-up exhibition. Let Glasgow Flourish.

    Some things what I have made with my own two hands will be available to the public at large to acquire as their very own tomorrow afternoon in The Arches, Glasgow. I’ll have a selection of handpainted necklaces up for grabs alongside some really swell artwork (if I do say so myself). Also available will be a variety of things made by my fellow IRONBBRATZ dwellers. You can find more information about the event over on the old Facebook.

    The Telfer Gallery, Glasgow

    I’ve spent the last few months working as part of a committee to develop the programming of a new arts space in Glasgow, the Telfer Gallery. It’s located within the IRONBBRATZ studios at 84 Miller Street. Our aim is to provide opportunities for creative practitioners in all disciplines, especially for projects that have an emphasis on collaborative work. The gallery will launch in November with a series of events - details to follow.

    We’re currently seeking applicants to take part in a two weeks’ critical discourse residency. If you are an artist or creative with work in progress that you would like to discuss in a public context, or would like to take part in a discussion group of others’ work, please see our call for applicants to our One Night Stand.

    You can also ‘like’ our Facebook page for the Telfer Gallery to keep updated on further events and opportunities, or follow us here on Tumblr.

    Last night I had a message from my optician telling me there was an image of my work in this month’s issue of the Skinny! It was included with an article about the Vault Art Fair which took place in the Briggait earlier this month. You can view the article online here - look for page 22.
