26 AUGUST – 9 SEPTEMBER
Christopher Silver Solo Show
Chris Silver is a Scottish artist from Glasgow.
“I am interested in the emotional quality of colour.
As someone with mental health issues, working with mark making and colour is important in portraying
a certain mood or atmosphere, whether it be neon colours to represent a high mood or aggressive mark making to signal anxiety.”
See Chris’ original oil portraits, prints and fashion illustrations in August!
4 – 27 JULY
This is our most colourful summer show yet!
Displaying artists accepted from our open call we are proud to display a vivid collection of artwork, from textiles, sculpture, oils, and screenprints.

Geraldine McConachie returns to Six Foot Gallery with a brand new body of work. Exploring themes of grief, culinary childhood nostalgia, and vulnerability, McConachie presents a bold series of comfort food sculptures with her unique sense of artistic dry wit.
Our annual Easter Exhibition is showcasing a varied blend of contemporary works featuring a range of media and styles. From surreal portraiture to sculpture, this year’s features artists explore a wide array of themes in innovative ways.
Straight off the back of their enormously successful solo debut at Salt Space Co-Op, multidisciplinary artist Fantod presents PUBLIC SCRUTINY: an intimate body of work, including paintings new and exclusive to Six Foot Gallery.

In 2021 they began an ongoing photography project titled AM I ME YET?, documenting their own transition through self-portraiture.

GRADUATES OF DJCAD, GSA, GRAYS AND ECA
Best of Degree Show exhibits our curator’s choice of recent graduates of Scottish art schools. Degree shows nationwide were cancelled by art schools in the wake of the first lockdown restrictions; Six Foot Gallery has stepped in to showcase the talent and resilience of a graduate class who have created ineffable works under unprecedented circumstances. For many of the featured artists, this has been their first opportunity to display their graduate projects.
GRAY’S SCHOOL OF ART 2020 GRADUATES
Gray’s Painting: A Reunion features work by Gray’s School of Art Class of 2020, created during the first wave of COVID-19 lockdowns. With their degree show cancelled and studio spaces restricted, the 2020 graduate class come together to curate a showcase of resilience and ability to adapt their creative practice in the toughest possible circumstances for emerging creatives.
The Summer Show at Six Foot Gallery is an varied collection of artworks selected from our annual Open Call. This year’s exhibition features a range of styles and themes such as portraiture, science and digital montage.
This is a collection of lost labels, of insect traps, dust and empty cases,
documenting collections and writing up conversations, anecdotes
and observations. It is a folding image from an archive transferred to print. It is a celebration of how information is concealed and exposed, the marks of its use, its creases and erasures. This is Constellations.
Time flutters around in fragments, walls close in, figures dwell in doorways. Each composition was built up from a serendipitous impulse, perhaps a situation initially fantasised, then worked upon many times. The viewer becomes a voyeur glimpsing from behind a door into a domestic interior, watching a character in reverie, a strange ritual or worship, searching for meaning. Tess hopes they are a reflection of the atmosphere of the past year.
