Title: Frank Quitely Exhibition at Kelvingrove - April to October 2017
Post by: Tiplodocus on 10 January, 2017, 07:39:27 pm

So this looks like a great excuse for another aborted attempt at a get together.

Let's start by noting who is interested in coming along and then we can work out a date. We have a six month window for this so should be able to manage one or two dates that mean different gangs can turn up.

My thoughts for the sort of day would be:
1100 - Meet at Gallery for a coffee
1115 to 1215 - wander round exhibition
1215 to 1230 - gift shop
1230 to 1400 - the 78 for lunch and beer
1400 until going home time - a West end pub crawl.

Or something like that but better.

So who is in?

A fiver! Help me boab!

Fortunately this falls just after my birthday so I should have the bawbees. I have very little in my diary for the period of the exhibition so I'm happy to be guided by those with busy and interesting lives!

Assuming we want to keep it to a Saturday and avoid Easter weekend itself, would either of these suit:
- 29th April (note Bank Holiday on Monday 1st may)
- 6th May

OK for April 29.
Rejigged my brain on the website - be warned the fiver entry is one of those fashionable-these-days 'early bird' deal gubbins. Ends after January. The horror of 'normal pricing' then applies - no further details  :o

Let's keep the logistical grief coming.

Relatedly, hope I can make this (the exhibition). In a very CalHabber move, I have been cancelling *everything* in recent weeks for reasons I won't bore youse with. Fingers crossed. Kelvingrove is grand.

Oh no!

I have the Rangers v Celtic game on the 29th!

Bigotry, hatred & petty jibes - and I have to miss it for the football!

The game has a 12 noon kick off so I should be able to make it for 2.30 or so. What is the preferred meet up time? Happy to book a ticket but no point if you'll be done by then - I could just meet up for the post cultural drinkies?

1430 - into the exhibition
1630 - pint in another pub
1800 - mother India for beer and curry
2000 - whatever seems most fun...

We went along to this at the weekend and loved it. There's much more in there than we expected, when we got into the first room we sort of assumed that was it but more space and more areas kept revealing themselves. We spent probably an hour and a half wandering through and we didn't really do any of the multi-media stuff (there are screens and headphones with documentaries and things).

Well worth a visit, especially at the price!

Smashing day oot & company  :)

Those digital blow-ups of the art that covered most walls were inspired. Can see why many of the norms would spend time peering at these - a great way to appreciate Frank's art all the more.

Somebody has to write the inevitable Batman v The Broons crossover. The Bairn as new sidekick, even.

I'm off to dig oot my Flex Mentallos.

Yes, good day with great company. Thanks.

Quitely really is a genius. The words that apply and make him so are; perspiration, anatomy, perspective, characterisation and dynamism.

I'm moving house next month so I've stuck my programme and assorted bits on eBay as it would never survive the move. Get yourself a bargain or at the very least a reasonably priced carrier bag.
