Jimmy Cosgrove – ‘A Series of Dreams’ Renowned Scottish artist's work comes to Milngavie -

Wednesday, 6 October, 2021

Renowned Scottish artist and designer Jimmy Cosgrove is exhibiting at the Lillie Art Gallery in Milngavie this month.

This recent work is derived from people, places and travel, in particular, the West of Scotland – including Arran and Ayrshire.

Cosgrove has a long association with Glasgow School of Art starting in 1968 as a student until 1999 when he was Deputy Director. Over those years he was Head of Printed Textiles then Head of First Year Studies.

In a career that spans some 50 years, his progressive thinking infiltrated many areas and projects across Glasgow. Early examples of commissions for public spaces, such as a glass mural for a restaurant at Queen Street Station in 1975, show his understanding and consideration for scale, pattern and process.

These elements are discernible in Cosgrove’s most recent works including ‘A Series of Dreams’ - stories within stories, images within images. He has maintained an impressive and genuine energy in his career as artist and designer.

Councillor Vaughan Moody, Joint Leader of the Council and Chair of the East Dunbartonshire Leisure & Culture Trust, said, "If you haven't made it back to the Lillie Art Gallery yet then consider making this the exhibition that brings you back. It is wonderful to have such interesting and celebrated work on show this month. The gallery is following all public health guidelines to ensure a safe and pleasant visit."
