WITH ROBERTA PEDERZOLI
Take home your own completely unique silver jewellery with this introduction to lost wax casting. Over the course of this 2-day workshop, jeweller Roberta Pederzoli will teach you how to use a saw, files and carving tools to produce a pendant or a ring in wax. Your piece will then be cast in silver and you will learn how to finish it using soldering and filing techniques, leaving you with a beautiful, wearable work of art to keep.
The class runs on Saturday 25th of May & Saturday 8th of June from 9.30am – 1.30pm. **Advanced booking is essential** and you must be available for *both days* as each class will cover different stages in the process. The cost for the 2-day course is £90 + materials (cost TBC). Please get in touch with the gallery at email@example.com to register your interest and find out more information.
Roberta Pederzoli is the award-winning designer behind Quinta Essenza jewellery. Her elegant and tactile designs are influenced by an intertwining of Italian culture and Scottish environment. Their organic forms take inspiration from wood, stones, cracks, leaves, lichens and seaweed, highlighting natural beauty where it is often overlooked.

Join us at Six Foot Gallery for a new exhibition by Showcase 2019 exhibitor Aurore Garnier!
Preview: Friday 1st March, 6pm-8pm
Exhibition: 4th March – 15th March
Aurore Garnier is a French artist living and working in Glasgow. After gaining a Bachelor of Architecture degree she studied at the National Decorative Art School of Paris and the Mackintosh School of Architecture.
Her work questions the limits between attraction and repulsion generated by the animal world. Being all at once trophy, corpse, memorial and ornament, taxidermy is a powerful symbol of paradoxical relations: It reflects an attempt of subjugation and sacralization through their reification.
Every architectural space is measured relative to the human body’s
dimensions. What do they become once uninhabited, or populated
by animals? Her drawings deal with losing the notion of scale. The
materiality of angles is developed in an ethereal spatiality; the streets lead to nowhere.
Everything is a question of scale. She likes the moon, the climatic
changes, the immensity of the universe and the tightening around the intensity of feelings. The smallness and magnitude of our cellular system.
11th May – 8th June
With somewhat otherworldly land/icescapes the artist explores the fragile yet
steadfast nature of the world. The artwork walks the line between the calm and the
chaotic, questioning how we can view the world in such an oppositional way.
Whereby, she creates a consensus with two completely diverging aspects. Often L.
Montgomery adds geometric structure, however higgledy-piggledy, to her land and
icescapes: highlighting the underlying robustness of the otherwise frail and delicate
Concentrating her focus on one aspect of the landscape, placing it into a vacuum,
allows for the very human feeling of unease. Giving human aspects to natural motifs
plays a large part in doing this the colours of the landscapes for example are more
akin to bruising which gives points of contact with the viewers own humanity and
Materials and techniques play a large role in the artist’s work, Montgomery
experiments with new ways of drawing with inks and paints. She uses materials
against themselves using the propensity of the materials to repel or attract one and
other, this also relays back to ideas of oppositional existence.
The exhibition attempts to bring together two oppositional aspects of life, creating a
disordered beauty. It exhibits both the durability and fragility of nature and life itself.
Montgomery was one of our many talented artists who took part in our 2018 Showcase and we are delighted to have them back again for their very own solo show!

FLOORPLAN AND PRICELIST
Healy and Gray have known each other for most of Healy’s life. They collaborated on a stained glass window for Clackmannanshire Council in 2009.
Healy and Gray have never exhibited their artwork together in an exhibition, before now. Through Healy’s connection with Butterfly Conservation, they visited the developing wildflower meadow in Pollock Park, Glasgow in 2017. Following a day planting seeds and plants for the planned urban meadow in Pollock Park, it led to discussions regarding the developing wildflower meadow to encourage biodiversity and to also highlight the work being done at Pollock Park and in other urban environments.
Siobhan Healy was one of the many talented artists who were part of our group exhibition 2018 Showcase, and we are extremely excited to have them back for their newest exhibition!
Due to the Easter weekend, our gallery office will be closed Good Friday the 30th of March and Easter Monday the 2nd of April. Our office will open again for its regular hours on Tuesday the 3rd of April. If you need to contact us please email us at email@example.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

FLOORPLAN AND PRICE LIST
Remaining Colours is a series of work which is derived from Shakir Mughal’s previous exhibitions (Chasing Colours – 2016; Blinking Colours – 2015; Dreaming Colours – 2014), sharing a divine affiliation with colour.
“In this work, I have created many forms and shapes with colours in a conceptual way by merging different layers of colours and produced a variety of colourful patterns, differentiating colours and their movements.
Remaining Colours represents the colours that have been left behind during previous exhibitions. However, it is not different from past work. It is produced in the same method and techniques in a very contemporary and abstract way by using colours as a tool to express inner catharsis.”
Be sure to check out Shakir’s work from Friday 9th February.
