Market Gallery invites you to join it for a weekend of site-specific installations of community-made, public artworks in the East End of Glasgow.
Parade Artists are holding an exhibition and sale on November 24th and 25th and on December 1st and 2nd at the WASPS studios, 77 Hanson Street, Dennistoun, G31 2HF. Opening times will be 11am until 5pm on Saturdays and 12 noon until 5pm on Sundays.
From the 30th of October to the 7th of December, illustrator Mitch Miller will be resident in Market Gallery on Duke Street. His task will be to create a large room-length ‘dialectogram’ of the stretch of Dennistoun’s main high street that lies between Bellgrove and Duke Street railway stations. Aided by a team of volunteers who will gather information and assist his research, he will work continuously on the drawing in an open studio format, where members of the public will be encouraged to drop by, share stories and if they so wish, contribute their own knowledge and experiences to the dialectogram.
But what exactly is a dialectogram?
Would you like to see an unused open space within your neighbourhood given a new lease of life?
A call is being put out to programmers, researchers, artists, educators, and thinkers within the Dennistoun community who are able to participate with the exciting new ‘Skill/Trade’ project based at Duke Street’s Market Gallery. Skill/Trade will have an emphasis on trading and exchange rather than monetary transactions.

On Saturday 2nd June, from 1-3pm, Dennistoun Community Council in association with Reidvale Adventure Playground (RAPA) and Edzell Property Management will be hosting TWO Big Lunches in Dennistoun. One will be held in Dennistoun Village’s ‘Buffallo Bill Square’ (at the corner of Whitehill Street and Finlay Drive). The other will be held at Reidvale Adventure Playground on Garfield Street.
Glasgow, from its legacy as an industrial city, now has a problem with stalled sites across the city. Glasgow currently has more vacant sites than the rest of Scotland put together. Many of these sites may have plans for future development, however this can be anywhere from one to over ten years until development is scheduled to begin.
Do you wish to breathe life into a non-functional space within your neighbourhood?
Market Gallery is hosting “a night of blood, sweat, tears, triumphs”.
