About Margot Sandeman SSA 1922-2009 Poetry & Harmony - Works On Paper And Oils

Listed Under Exhibitions Events

She studied at Glasgow School of Art, together with the painter Joan Eardley. They were two of a small group selected for special training by the Head of Drawing & Painting Hugh Adam Crawford. Both artists flourished under his experimental fast track treatment, and became close friends, developing a deep and lasting friendship. Both lived in Bearsden and, although their styles were very different, they encouraged and supported each other, drew and painted together, and shared camping trips and family holidays. In 1941, as students, Sandeman and Eardley acquired a horse and caravan and travelled, sketched and painted around Loch Lomond. For many years, the two women regularly visited High Corrie on the Isle of Arran, renting an outhouse, "The Tabarnacle", as a studio. This exhibition features some of the delicate studies and drawings, works on paper, which she created there in preparation for her larger oils.

Margot Sandeman was born in Glasgow in 1922, the daughter of Archibald Sandeman, a self-taught water colourist, and Muriel Boyd, internationally known embroiderer who trained with Jessie Newbery at Glasgow School of Art.

Winner of the RSA's prestigious Guthrie Award in 1958, and the Anne Redpath award in 1970. Also in 1970 she won a Scottish Arts Council Award, and in 1989 was the Scottish winner of the Laing Competition. Sandeman exhibited at The Royal Scottish Academy from 1946-1972, Cyril Gerber Fine Art, Compass Gallery, Glasgow; the Talbot Rice Gallery, Edinburgh; and the Lillie Art Gallery, Milngavie. She has contributed to mixed exhibitions throughout Britain and in the USA, and is represented in public and private collections in Scotland, and private collections in England.

Also on show will be regular gallery artists with works by Joan Eardley, Scottish Colourists, Glasgow Girls & Boys, Modern British, Scottish Modern Masters, John Bellany, John Byrne, Colquhoun & MacBryde, James Cowie, James Kay, Peter Lanyon, William McCance and Keith Vaughan .
