The event has been organised by reporter Laura Sturrock in memory of her grandmother Isobel who died of ovarian cancer aged just 32, when her son (Laura’s dad) was only three years old.

The exhibition called ‘Woman’s Work: Being Seen’ includes work by Laura’s daughter Jade (22) who is a recent graduate of Glasgow School of Art.

Work by three of her friends, Rowan Flint, Hannah Lyth and Catriona Thomson, also graduates of Glasgow School of Art, is also on display.

Their work explores themes of womanhood in art, politics and culture and acts as prequel to their larger exhibition in The Lillie Art Gallery in October this year.
