Coming soon! Art for Africa in memory of Bruce Finnie – April 22nd

March 22nd, 2019

Starchild is a Glasgow based charity that believes the development of young people can be significantly enhanced through the inspiration provided by their participation in the arts.

We look forward to welcoming them to the Gallery later this month with around 100 wonderful paintings including works by Peter Howson, Ross Muir, Alexander Millar, Frank McFadden, Laetitia Guilbaud, Moe Rocksmoore and Iain Faulkner.


The charity has deep links with Uganda and has built a School for Creative Arts in Uganda. This school and vocational centre allows vulnerable young people, who would otherwise never have the opportunity to develop creative talents, a chance to build up their skill base, enhance their prospects and provide many hours of enjoyable tutoring and performances.

In partnership with the Gallery and McTears auctioneers the online auction will be live from April 22nd through until May 12th.

This year Starchild is holding the auction in memory of a dear friend Bruce Finnie. Bruce owned By Distinction Art, Byres Road and supported Art for Africa from the beginning.

The paintings can be viewed in the Gallery from 1100 – 1700 from Monday 22nd April through until 12th May.

We hope you can manage along and enjoy (and perhaps even bid on) some truly wonderful art… and all for a really great cause!
