Completed in 2016 the artwork shows a moment in time, in the life of Kelvingrove Museum, one Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions.

Well known for her watercolours of Glasgow city scenes, Avril Paton has loaned her most recent work to the city. It will hang in the Glasgow Stories gallery on the ground floor of Kelvingrove Museum until November 2018. The colorful painting shows the museum building as seen from outside, with people around and is described by the artist as ‘Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum on a winter Saturday 2016’.

Avril Paton will deliver a 10 minute talk on Tuesday 18th September in front of her work The Four Graces, speaking about Kelvingrove Museum as her inspiration, and her recent work in general.

The Four Graces will hang in the Glasgow Stories gallery in Kelvingrove Museum until 22nd October 2018.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Four Graces are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
