See & Do

  • Gareth Reid

Free Events

Gareth Reid is a Glasgow-based painter and teacher at the much-lauded institution, Glasgow School of Art. Originally from Belfast, he has studied internationally in a variety of honoured schools, honing his craft of fine art painting.

As an artist, Gareth is adept at creating a scene or a set, to use theatre jargon. You can concoct entire stories around his images, weaving your own fiction as you drink in the visual, and interpret it for yourself.

His painting is dreamy and hazy, like Super-8 film. Impressionistic strokes add to the mystery of his pictures, drawing you in as you translate the blots of shadows, colour and light.

Gareth is returning to the Molesworth Gallery with some of his more recent work, and you will certainly enjoy it. Take some time out of your day and be inspired to imagine and create your own fiction within the walls of the gallery. What a wonderful and contemplative way to while away the hours.
