Studio Warehouse | Glasgow G3 8QG
Phone: 0141 337 1731
Located in an archway by the motorway in Glasgow's West End, SWG3 is a multi disciplinary arts venue and events company, housing artists' studios, a gallery, and an occasional bar, which in turn are used to showcase the work of new artists, as well as for launch parties, club nights, mini-festivals and much more besides.
The studio is a non-profit organisation, and home to a community of over 120 artists and musicians. The exhibitions are almost always innovative, engaging and worth a look, and a studio space there is swift becoming the holy grail of post-graduate locations. The venue is also a pretty successful gig venue, and hosts a programme of live music which straddles all manner of genre, from local musicians and touring artists alike.
The Galvanizers Yard is the newest addition to SWG3: a 6000sq foot clear span venue, it was recently refurbished and has already played host to large corporate dinners, music festivals and an international graffiti festival, called ‘Yardworks’. Indeed, since SWG3's opening, grassroots galleries have mushroomed in the surrounding arches, making a stroll down Eastvale Place a definite must for the curious art aficionado.
