Glasgow Print Studio First Floor Gallery

Exhibition Runs: 07 June - 28 July 2019


This exhibition of new paintings and prints by Alasdair Wallace represents his first major solo show in Glasgow in over twenty years. An important strand of this new work examines the parallel processes across painting and printmaking, where they overlap and diverge and how they can inform each other. The influence of his recent experimentations in printmaking has led to his use of systematic painting techniques alongside his more usual instinctive and reactive approach.

Congratulations to Glasgow Print Studio Director, John Mackechnie who has been recognised for his services to Art in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2019.


"I am surprised but delighted to have been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. It is heartening that my 36 years at the helm of Glasgow Print Studio has been recognised and hopefully also my own work as a visual artist. I was already feeling very pleased with myself this year having had a work of mine acquired for the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and having a couple of works in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, but this tops the lot."


John Mackechnie graduated in Drawing and Painting from Glasgow School of Art in 1971 before going on to Post Graduate Studies in printmaking at the University of Brighton. He was a printmaking tutor at the University of Northumbria for a number of years until returning to Glasgow Print Studio to take up a post as an evening class tutor, quickly climbing through the ranks to become firstly the Workshop Manager and since January 1983, Director.


John has specialised in printmaking ever since, exhibiting prolifically throughout the UK and abroad in solo and mixed exhibitions. He was elected to the Royal Scottish Academy in 2005.


John turns 70 later this year and a major exhibition of his work is planned to take place at Glasgow Print Studio in 2020 in celebration.
