A new exhibition by Colin Tennant is opening on Friday at Platform in Easterhouse, Glasgow. The exhibition opens on Friday 8 September and runs until 19 November.

‘Paint it Red’ is a contemporary portrait of Easterhouse by Glasgow-based artist, Colin James Tennant. The exhibition is the culmination of a year-long photography project that has developed through conversations, interactions and experiences gained while working in Easterhouse. The work explores the local landscape; the social history, its personalities and the human spirit that contribute to this notoriously misunderstood community.

“I’ve spent time over the past year meeting and photographing people in the local community and hearing their stories. It’s been a truly fascinating experience – I’ve met so many inspirational people in what is a thriving, vibrant place.” (Colin Tennant).

Friday 8 September, 6pm - 8pm.
All welcome - free

Followed by a performance by Matthew Bourne, 8pm (ticketed)
