Been slow to pick the camera back up after the holidays… slow to find new stories to tell… so today was just about the basics and getting back into it with this Cereal Magazine-inspired still life…

Photographer Garth Ivan , MFA, in his first solo show – featuring 25 fine art images of portraiture and life studies – offers a quiet meditation on our humanity, both as as we wrestle with our own frailty, and approach the frontier of merging with a technological singularity of our own creation – unknowing of what lies beyond.

The show runs concurrently with The 2020 Scottish Portrait Awards show, in which Garth is also a Long List Exhibit finalist and Short List reserve artist.
The show, welcomes all galleries, press, and the public to view the images, which are available to purchase in highly limited editions. An exhibition catalogue is also available.

New Studio Work for Craig Black X B&A

Proud to have been commissioned by friend and very talented lettering artist Craig Black in his debut with premier artist management agency, Bernstein & Andriulli. I’ve been a fan of B&A since my brand art director days, and its always been a dream of mine to get elite representation as well – so seeing a true talent from Scotland achieve the best NY management very much proves “it can be done”. Today my photos and video are on B&A’s homepage, and I will very happily take that vicarious win. Heartfelt congratulations to Craig!

GarthIvan’s The Old Sugarboat wins the 2020 The Elisabeth and Harold Swan Award

I’m delighted to have had my image The Old Sugarboat win this years’ Elizabeth & Harold Swan Award – sponsored by the Morningside Gallery, Edinburgh. A truly unexpected and really wonderful way to cap off the week, and a piece of our local history that I’m proud to have getting seen. On view now (and available in a closed edition of 5) at the Glasgow Art Club & Gallery Winter Virtual Exhibition – VIEW HERE

The Last Of Our Kind

The Last Of Our Kind Solo Exhibition by GarthIvan at the Glasgow Art Club and Gallery

This exhibition has been over two years in the making, and I – along with many others – watch to see how covid will change our fortunes. Very much hope to see the show running in its full and intended form this winter. Fingers crossed!

The Scottish Portrait Awards

I’m delighted to have my Portrait of David as part of The Scottish Portrait Awards 2020 Long List Exhibition, showing from 15 December, 2020 to 15 January, 2021.

The Scottish Portrait Awards 2020

I’m absolutely thrilled to say that this year I have three works featured in the Scottish Portrait Awards Long List Exhibition. Of those, my Portrait of Corrie was one of only four semi-finalists out of 80 or so for the short list exhibition, and is held in reserve for that show (fingers crossed).

This was my very first shot at the prize, and while I fell slightly short, this is still one of those moments that tells me I chose the right path by choosing something that I both love, and just need to do for reasons that I still can’t fully articulate. Much more to come on dates – both for this show, and my own solo show – but can I just say one small “*yay!” Before I get back to work….
