Fraser Taylor: seen here with with the artist Rosi Nyamakanga at his Glasgow studio, 11th April 2014. The painting shown here is amongst works to be included in Fraser’s show at the McLellan Galleries, Glasgow in November, as part of the annual exhibition of The Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts.


Patrick Procktor: I recently visited the beautifully installed exhibition of works by the artist at the Galerie de France in Paris. This was the first time Procktor’s work had been shown in Paris since 1991. Although the show has now ended the work can still be seen online:  http://www.galeriedefrance.com/exposition/5691/PATRICK_PROCKTOR_-_From_LOndon_to_VEnice__with_LO-VE/
