An exciting new exhibition is now underway at the west end's Thistle Gallery after a successful preview weekend.

The Gallery was full of book and art-lovers are a few images of what lies in store...but you really must visit to truly appreciate the diversity of work in every medium and the wide array of literature which has inspired the artists.

In addition to their normal opening hours this Thursday, June 7th and next Thursday, June 14th, the Gallery is privileged to be hosting two charity events in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support from 7pm.

Two acclaimed authors, Graeme Macrae Burnet and Carl MacDougall, will be reading extracts from their books. And a cornucopia of talented writers of poetry and short stories will also be present each evening, who have participated in two anthologies 'Ten Writers, Telling Lies' and 'Honest Error'.

Tickets for these events, £15, are selling fast and include wine and canapés. A raffle which features a painting by popular artist Jackie Henderson who has donated 'The Secret Garden' artwork to help boost funds for the Macmillan Charity will also be included.

Please email or call 07745392117 to secure your tickets for what promises to be two memorable evenings exploring the bond between art and literature.
