Throughout the 1940’s the interest in the Glasgow Boys rose dramatically, and the demand for such artists as Henry, Lavery and Walton grew. One Glasgow painter of the period who was not so widely prominent was James Kay, active from the early 1880’s until 1942, yet he had a quality and range of consistency second to none.

Kay exhibited regularly in the Royal Glasgow Institute, the RSA and the Paris Salon. He is a Scottish artist of international standing and his work is held in numerous public collections. Amongst his many studios in Glasgow, he had four in West Regent Street, where this gallery is situated and it is therefore fitting that his paintings return to this location today.

We hope that you and your guests will join us to view the exhibition on the evening of Thursday 7th August from 5.30-7.30pm.
