Sogo Arts crowdfunder
We are a wee independent Glasgow gallery. We are doing a crowd funder to help fund more exhibitions and to widen our audience in these difficult times in the arts.
We are an arts-led space that provides artists and others and the public with a range of opportunities to make and engage with the creative industries in Glasgow. We host exhibitions, organise salons for discussion, host student groups and work with other galleries across Europe. Previously we created and published SOGO magazine.
Our key interest is in hosting exhibitions for work that may not easily find a place elsewhere. Consequently, we have had very successful exhibitions by David Pratt, war photographer, Brian McFie abstract artist, Brian Sweeney, photographer, Bob Hardy photographer [Franz Ferdinand], Chris Leslie photographer, ‘A Balkan Journey’, photographer Angela Catlin and poet Henry Bell, ‘Still Life’ and the Unlikely clan who did a show of figurative, narrative paintings.
This project has been running for three years, during a period of great upheaval. Our inability to trade during the lockdown period has proven difficult and the increases in costs have affected some of our planning. However, we have a full programme of exciting exhibitions in the pipeline, with a combination of funding from public and private bodies, and several of our ground-breaking exhibitions will be going on tour. Brian Sweeney’s work has just returned from Stornoway and will soon be going to Iceland.
