Tall Tales culminating exhibition took place within the beautiful Glasgow Women’s Library. With artwork from all 17 of our artists, as well as artwork created by the Glasgow Women’s Library members themselves (for the Call for Cloth project), Tall Tales filled every nook and cranny of the venue! The full exhibition was on display between 21 October – 22 December 2016.
