Govanhill Baths Winter Arts Programme

In these dark bleak freezing days and nights, why dont you come along to the Baths to cheer yourself up?

From today, Local artist Rabia Saleem will be exhibiting a series of paintings and photographs in the foyer.  “Walkabout: From My Home to the Clyde”  captures images of Glasgow which have a special place in the heart of Glaswegians and evoke memories of craftsmanship and workmanship in the landscape and architecture around us.

The exhibition is one every day in January while the Baths is open – FREE.

In February the participants in our evening drawing class will be exhibiting the work they completed as part of their course.  The Foyer exhibition space is available free of charge for local artists to exhibit their work.  If you are interested contact Jim on art@govanhillbaths.com

On Burns Night (Thu 25 January) we will be hosting some of Scotland’s finest poets.  “This is NOT a Burns Night” skips the ritual – no haggis, no bevvy, just poetry.  Magi Gibson, Darren “Loki” McGarvey, Fiinola Scott, Angie Strachan and Marc Sherland will be reading on the night.  Tickets are £5 from www.brownpapertickets.com
