House for an Art Lover and ART PARK, Glasgow

House for an Art Lover is a truly unique venue, originally designed for a German Design Competition in 1901 by the internationally acclaimed Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The House is situated within the beautiful landscape of Bellahouston Park, ten minutes from Glasgow City Centre, providing visitors with an international centre of excellence in the visual arts.

With a remit to stimulate public interest in art, design and architecture, the House has successfully developed a rolling programme of visual art exhibitions with related masterclasses and talks by some of Scotland’s leading artists and designers, including Adrian Wiszniewski, Patricia Cain, Elspeth Lamb and June Carey – to name just a few!

An innovative term-time programme of weekday / weekend arts courses and holiday schools has also been developed to provide the impetus for everyone from tiny tots to aspiring adults to discover their own unique creativity, with the encouragement of professional artist-tutors to develop participants’ skills and interests in the most inspiring surroundings.

This summer saw the launch of the House’s new ART PARK Centre for Arts & Heritage which aims to support the wider creative and cultural interests of their guests. While the Heritage Centre presents a digital model and archive of the 1938 British Empire Exhibition along with information on the social and industrial heritage of the area surrounding the park, the Studio Pavilion provides first class accommodation for visiting artists and participants to explore a range of specialist art-forms ranging from botanical drawing and painting to Japanese woodblock printing in a spacious  architect-designed studio with North light and windows opening on to the adjacent Victorian Walled Garden.

The House is also home to the award winning Art Lovers Café which has a passion for good food and friendly service, supported by a great team of chefs who source the highest quality ingredients from local suppliers. Open daily from 10am to 5pm, House for an Art Lover is the perfect location to learn more about the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, take in an exhibition, stroll round the grounds to discover intriguing public art works and explore your own creative potential in one of the many arts workshops, short courses or master classes that take place throughout the year.
