Monday 8th September 12noon – 1pm.  Come along to our first free lunchtime talk of the month! We’ll be looking at the history of the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts  – with colourful figures as diverse as Rossetti and Joan Eardley, to lesser known artists. Come and find out about this crucial part of Glasgow’s story!
