The results of a specially commissioned portrait photography exhibition, as part of the events to commemorate 10 Years of Clyde Gateway, have gone on display in Rutherglen.

“REFLECTIONS ON A DECADE OF REGENERATION: 12 WOMEN HAVE THEIR SAY” features residents from the east end of Glasgow and Rutherglen, all of whom posed for a black and white portrait and provided some thoughts on what the past ten years of regeneration activity by Clyde Gateway has meant for them.

Clare Ferry, Project Manager at Clyde Gateway said: “The suggestion for some sort of exhibition to mark our ten years initially came from a locally based photographer, David Collie. We mulled over a few concepts but kept returning to the idea of very powerful images of women who have lived or worked in the area from well before Clyde Gateway became involved and also having the women provide their own captions.

“It proved to be a very successful venture with everyone who volunteered to pose being thrilled with their individual photos and at being part of what will be a travelling exhibition going into the first half of 2019. From Clyde Gateway’s perspective, we are delighted both to have such fantastic endorsements of our regeneration work while also having the opportunity to work with and support a local business.”

The exhibition will be on display at the offices of Healthy’n’Happy at 18 Farmeloan Road, Rutherglen until 14 December. It will then show at four other community locations – the Bridgeton Community Learning Campus, Rutherglen Library, The Legacy Hub, and Calton Heritage Centre – between January and April 2019.

Full details of the further exhibitions will be announced in due course.
