After years moving between temporary premises, Glasgow Sculpture Studios (GSS) has now moved to its permanent home in the impressive conversion at Speirs Locks, Glasgow. The new building offers studio space to more than 60 artists from Turner prize nominees to recent graduates, along with facilities for more than 120 other practitioners, including workshops, state-of-the-art technology, exhibition space and more.


l On Tuesday and Wednesday, Sotheby's will exhibit a group of Scottish pictures, including work by Glasgow Boy Sir James Guthrie, at the Blythswood Square hotel, Glasgow. The works will be offered for sale by Sotheby's in London on 13 November, in an auction of British and Irish art. The selection also includes paintings by the Scottish Colourists, Francis Cadell and Samuel Peploe, Joan Eardley and Robin Philipson, among others. In the Orchard by Guthrie is also to be sold on behalf of the Ewing Foundation for the Benefit of Deaf Children and comes to the market with an estimate of up to £800,000.
