GalGael in the Gallery

Some of our staff and volunteers have been assisting in setting up a large sculptural work in Kelvingrove Gallery and Museum with artist Trish Cain.
A letter of thanks from Trish is shown below.
See the link within the text for youtube video:

Hi Martin
Anne and I just wanted to say a really huge thank you to everyone for the help you gave us to construct the installation for the Kelvingrove Exhibition.
Without the considerable skill and expertise of everyone at GalGael, it just wouldn’t have been possible at all and a huge part of the exhibition would have been left unfulfilled, so thank you for taking that phone call and then getting roped into it all!
We’ve had fantastic feedback about the structure and a lot of interest in the process of construction. As you know, a film was made about how the exhibition came together by Isla Pedrana and Solveig Seuss. Here’s the link to the uploaded video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sq8JQg1l_kM
I’d like to say thank you to you, Norrie, Ben, Dave, Omair, Kevin, Stuart, Michael, Robert, Cameron and anyone else I’ve missed and also to say a special thank you to John Campbell for coming up so often to the gallery to help us.
Please keep me in mind for any assistance I might give you in return, particularly in relation to drawing projects, as I owe you.
All the best and see you soon no doubt.
Trish Cain

Govan Folk University

GalGael along with some other local groups and local folk are in the process setting up of the Govan Folk University.
We are asking, what kinds of knowledge and ways of learning do we need to empower our community and the people who live there. We believe that many of the answers lie in the people and with the spirit of the community itself.

You can find out more about who is involved and what we are hoping to do by clicking on the link below.
