Gossip, chat and rumour from the gallery floor
Some of Scotland’s artists have donated paintings, prints, drawings and photographs to be exhibited and sold to raise funds for Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland, which is now part of the UK’s leading HIV and sexual health charity. The exhibition ‘Positive Pictures: Scotland’s Artists on HIV’ sees a diverse mix of artists in Scotland drawing attention to the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Exhibiting artists include Amy Whitten, David Shrigley, Rob Churm and David Bellingham. The work will be exhibited at a new gallery space and café in Glasgow’s Art De Caf and will run from Thursday 23 November until Friday 1 December, World AIDS Day.
