One of Glasgow’s foremost artists, Avril Paton, made the city and its citizens the principle focus of her work. She is best known for her painting ‘Windows in the West’, which is one of Scotland’s favourite paintings. Its evocative scene of a winter’s evening in a tenement on Saltoun Street continues to delight visitors to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.

The lilac pink sky, the lit windows, the clarity of whiteness where there had been darkness – it was magic.’ – Avril Paton

Come along to Glasgow City Heritage Trust in Bell Street or online (please select the appropriate ticket option for you) to hear Avril discuss her life and work, and find out how she captured in paint the historic buildings and places of the Dear Green Place.
