About Hings We Dae

This Scottish based collective will exhibit their paintings, fictional writings, and a musical album.

The walls will display twelve paintings by WASP artist Jonathan Hood, a colourful collection resulting from a collaboration with writer Louise Dautheribes McKerl, as part of the illustrations for her newly published novella, Bedtime Story. The storyline covers the absurd romance between an insomniac and a neuroscientist studying sleep deprivation.

Sean Thomson, son of WASP artists Helen Flockhart and Peter Thomson, will showcase his forthcoming novel with an audio installation featuring excerpts from his story, a musician’s tale told in Glasgow Scots.

Andrew Mill will sing his new album with some of Scotland's finest musicians, including Sandy Brechin (accordion), Ciarán Ryan (fiddle/mandolin), William Oke (double bass), Tracey Muir (fiddle/ vocals), Sean Thomson (telecaster/mandolin/banjo/vocals) and Gary Rafferty (stratocaster/tenor banjo). The band’s fellow song writer and poet Donald Ker, will perform readings from his new and unreleased book, with stories of Aberdeen, alligators, mountains and pissing in the sink.

The collective hail from Govanhill, Paris, Dundee, Nairn, Edinburgh, but their paths converged in Glasgow where they have provided inspiration and support for each other, and now celebrate the results of their work. Their words, paintings and music will take you on a journey through their minds, show how their experiences, surroundings, frustrations and elations have sculpted the ‘hings’ they ‘dae’.
