Description

For nearly one hundred years 5 Blythswood Square was the headquarters of the Glasgow Society of Lady Artists’ Club (founded in 1882 and disbanded in 1971). In an ‘under the stairs’ telephone booth designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, this recording of women artists living and working in Glasgow today, reading from a score created by Reynolds from entries in the club’s log book and its programmes of exhibitions, tableaux and soirées, was open to visitors and to the current occupants of the building, a variety of business organisations.
