Tales from the Barrow

The three recipients, Charlotte HayesMegan Squire and Charlotte Elizabeth Roberts, are all recent graduates from The Glasgow School of Art (GSA). The RGI Graduate Award is awarded to emerging artists at the GSA Degree show, in recognition of outstanding work. The winners, from the School of Fine Arts, were selected by the RGI artist judging panel which consisted of Thyme James, Sean Ellcombe and the RGI President Adrian Wiszniewski RSA, Hon FRIAS, HRSW.

Tales From The Barrow is a collection of works by photographer Charlotte Roberts, mixed media artist Charlotte Hayes and painter Megan Squire exploring landscape, artefacts and mythology. The Barrow, being an ancient burial mound covered with earth, became the intersection of their practices and a geographical reference to the North of England where the three artists grew up.

This exhibition follows their acceptance of the RGI Graduate Award and displays works made by the artists since graduating from The School of Fine Art at The Glasgow School of Art in 2020.
