Mussel Inn Glasgow seafood restaurant is proud to host the Rubbing Shoulders art exhibition featuring 10 female artists who have all “rubbed shoulders” with each other at some point during their careers. The subject matter is extremely diverse and there’s plenty of interesting ideas for Christmas presents or a wee treat for yourself.

The most experimental artist/printmaker showing is Silvana Maclean whose influence on the group cannot be ignored. Silvana is also a highly considered teacher. Silvana and her friend Sarah Keast both come from Moniaive Dumfriesshire. Sarah Keast is a very exciting printmaker.

Karen Lloyd, a trained textile designer, now paints and is also a printmaker. Two of Karen’s friends (they are all from Kendal) Janette Phillips and Annie Coxey, will also be exhibiting their mixed works.
