The Alchemy Experiment is an inclusive exhibition and events space with an internal coffee house, that opened on Glasgow’s Byres Road in the autumn of 2019. Set to host art exhibitions, talks, workshops, film screenings, live music, tuition, poetry and more, the gallery’s goal is to provide a platform for artists and creatives to exhibit their work, collaborate and link to the city’s established art scene.
The gallery published a collection of artwork created during lockdown, Love in the Time of Covid, in 2020, and is now calling for entries for its new project, Love and Chaos, inviting artists to submit artworks inspired by that title to contribute, to form a publication and exhibition. The gallery reopened recently with a large-scale mural by Mark Worst, as part of the project (pictured). The organisers say that, ‘feelings of love and chaos seem apt starting points of a more wide-ranging brief where artists are encouraged to take the themes in any direction they wish, interpreted as broadly or as literally as desired.’ Submissions are invited via the gallery’s website, which also features a shop for prints, clothing and other merchandise.
