Gallery Q in Dundee is presenting forty small new works by Dundee-born painter Joe McIntyre, offering a comprehensive variety of his subjects, such as scenes of Dundee, Edinburgh, New York, Madrid and Paris, as well as still-life studies and more. A highly-skilled employer of light and shade, with a rich warmth in his well-judged colours, Joe has become known for his trademark pieces of figurative city life, earning him many admirers and collectors. He will be at the Gallery for the exhibition’s opening on Saturday 23rd October, from 11am, giving visitors an opportunity to meet him. Joe studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee under the guidance of gifted artists Alberto Morocco and James McIntosh Patrick, and was top student in his year, graduating in 1964; he curated at the Orchar Art Gallery in Broughty Ferry for twenty years. He was a part-time teacher at Dundee’s Art College, and by the time he retired in 2007, he had tutored generations of Dundee artists.
Alongside this, the Gallery has a small mixed exhibition including new paintings from Fiona Sturrock, and, new to the gallery, Catriona Campbell, plus the Gallery’s usual selection of beautiful glass, ceramics and jewellery, and greetings cards.
