Glasgow Women’s Library

23 Landressy Street, Glasgow G40 1BP
28 October 2021 – 12 February 2022

To mark the centenary of Joan Eardley’s birth, Glasgow Women’s Library is delighted to present an exhibition of five beautiful artworks by Eardley, kindly on loan from the University of Edinburgh Art Collection.

Glasgow Women’s Library will also host free creative writing workshops in response to this exhibition. Suitable for people new to creative writing and people who write regularly, the one-off workshops will feature a series of engaging prompts and activities to help you explore and engage with Joan Eardley’s paintings through the medium of creative writing – perhaps seeing where her art and imagination can inspire yours.
