'Lino Printing' Launches at The Young Gallery

The Young Gallery, Scotland’s first gallery dedicated to showcasing children’s art work, is proud to present its new exhibition ‘Lino Printing’ by second year pupils at St Mungos Academy. Impact arts are delighted to welcome local MSP John Mason to launch the exhibition on Friday 16th of November at 10am.

‘Lino Printing’ was created by the pupils of St Mungos Academy. Using the theme ‘multicultural’ as a basis for their work, the pupils cut their designs on lino to create these bold and bright prints. The broad theme gave the pupils the freedom to interpret their work in a very individual way, and the result is a varied and highly personal exhibition.

John Mason, SNP MSP for the East End commented:

“I am delighted to have had the opportunity to open this wonderful exhibition, which really showcases some of the fantastic talent of 2nd year pupils at St Mungo’s Academy.

Impact Arts are a great organisation, based in the East End, and we are really fortunate to have them working in our community.

The Lino Printing exhibition is well worth seeing and I would highly recommend it to everyone.”

Liz Shepherd, Gallery Coordinator said:

‘Working with the second year pupils at St Mungos Academy was a joy. The enthusiasm and creativity they brought to the workshops was infectious and you can see from the resulting exhibition that they really thought about the theme and made it their own. I can’t wait to see the look on the pupil’s faces and those of their parents and teachers when they see their work exhibited professionally. I am so pleased that John will be present to cut the ribbon - this will make the launch all the more special."
