A new art exhibition in Glasgow featuring table tennis bats created by artists from across the UK will help raise funds for a community table tennis club. BACKSP!N will comprise a silent auction for its first week, then a general sale for its remaining two weeks, with all proceeds going to Drumchapel Table Tennis Club, which provides a vital service in the heart of Glasgow. The launch event takes place on Friday 26th November at WASPS Studios‘ South Block Building when email bids to firstname.lastname@example.org will be accepted from 6pm; the exhibition and sale continue until 15th December. Created by Glasgow-based design studio Pim-Pam, working with Terry McLernon MBE, Chairman at Table Tennis Scotland, the event follows a successful first outing in 2019, SP!N.
The exhibition includes a wealth of creative talent from the likes of comic book artist Frank Quitely, sculptor and Turner Prize winner Martin Boyce, type artist Raissa Pardini, renowned landscape painter Robert Kelsey, signwriter and lettering artist Rachel E Millar, who is also designing the table, digital designer Ione Parsons, artist Pam Carter, graphic & motion designer Ashleigh Robertson, Terrazo & Titz, who specialise in Jesmonite specific pigments, illustrator and live drawing artist Ursula Kam-Ling Cheng, illustrator Agata Pietrusz, and visual artist Craig Black.
