Saturday 28 May – Saturday 9 July 2016
Hillhead Library, Glasgow

Departures is an exhibition of work by New Photographers Guild, a photographic mentoring initiative led by Claire Stewart (lecturer – City of Glasgow College) and Elaine Livingstone (photographer and photo editor) in association with Street Level Photoworks. The nine participants, graduates of Scottish educational establishments including Glasgow School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art, Moray School of Art and City of Glasgow College, each responded to the broad theme of ‘migration’.

The exhibition features bitter and sweet reflections on places of origin, the pseudo snapshots of a time traveler, and explorations of more spiritual migrations. These are visual points of departure for investigations of historic time and liminal space.

Departures features works by Janice Fleming, Iga Gozdowksa, Zoe Hamill, William Kay, Mairéad Keating, Frank McElhinney, Gemma Ovens, Stuart Simpson and Matthew Southward.
