Willie Sutherland

2 - 24 February 2024

Willie Sutherland’s exhibition at East Kilbride arts centre is something of a homecoming having grown up in nearby Burnbank.

Sutherland developed his unique style of working during the lockdown of early 2021 in counterpart to his recovery from alcohol addiction. "Self portrait as a dolls house” is an 18 roomed visual diary of his emotional experience during that time.

With no formal training and having made the decision to get well and become an artist in January 2021, this work made its debut during his solo show at Glasgow’s CCA during Glasgow international art festival by June of the same year.

He has gone on to exhibit regularly as a solo artist and in regular collaboration with the estate of seminal artist George Wyllie.

Duncan Brown

1 - 28 March 2024

A local art exhibition of everything Scottish... its history, people, landscapes, animals and birds, historic buildings, myths and magic. All painted by the Scottish artist, piper, and author Duncan Brown. His book, My Hero, My Soldier Laddie, about Lanarkshire’s Victoria Cross winners, was published and debated in Parliament in 2010. It was supplied to every school and library in Central Scotland at the time, via the Scottish Parliament. Due to this, a large granite monument now stands proud in Hamilton’s New Town Square. It forever declares the names and pride in these special soldiers of Lanarkshire. The research for this was extensive, as is every other painting subject of this exhibition.

Jaimie Baird

5 - 27 April 2024

Jamie began painting when he was in prison. He quickly realised that he enjoyed painting and it passed time whilst he was locked up at night.

As he continued to paint, people were commenting on his work and encouraging him to keep doing it. He realised it was a focus that played a huge part in his recovery from substance misuse. He is now currently four years clean and sober. 

The majority of canvases on display have been painted using acrylic during his time in prison. Jamie is still developing and trying new techniques and styles but has really enjoyed the use of colour.

Most of the images displayed hold a special meaning to him.

Coming from the lifestyle that Jamie used to live he could never have imagined himself becoming an artist. He is hoping to use this new found skill to help build a legitimate future.
