A fond farewell to Alan Davie who we were so sorry to hear died at the weekend.
One of the 20th Century’s great artists with whom the studios had the particular pleasure of working.

Dovecot and Scottish Opera are working in partnership for the first time. Scottish Opera has commissioned prominent artist Alison Watt to create a new design for a major new tapestry to be woven in collaboration with the Studios. The completed tapestry will hang over sweeping new walls connecting the old Theatre Royal with the new foyer spaces currently under construction in Glasgow. The tapestry can be viewed as a work in progress, from the viewing balcony, 12 to 3pm Mon – Sat.
