The show debuts a new work from Alasdair Gray titled "Omnium Gatherum."

It references Anthony Trollope's novel The Prime Minster which featured the Duke of Omnium who resided at Gatherum Hall and was also a play on that saying.

The Print Studio also has several works on display by Janka Malkowska (1912 - 1997).

AN exhibition in Glasgow shows 21 large linen hangings telling the story of a Nicaraguan family through the Sandanista revolution and its collapse.

The images were created over 28 years by Irvine artist, author and art therapist Fiona Macintosh and were originally used to illustrate her 2016 book Rosa of the Wild Grass.

Ms Macintosh met her friend Rosa in the early 1980s when she went to live in Nicaragua as a young art school graduate.

In addition to the 3m hangings, which are on display in the Briggait’s main hall, in Glasgow, until 17 January, there are prints plus artworks by members of Project Ability, a Glasgow visual arts organisation working with people who have disabilities and mental health issues.

The Macintosh prints and Project Ability display can be seen in the side galleries until 26 January.

One of the artists core interests is the nature of communities and the support they provide in hard times.

She said: “It was through a sense of community that families like Rosa’s survived those decades of dictatorship.

"It’s often only at the most extreme times we realise that those we take for granted – mums, dads, our family and our community – are the ones we rely on the most.

"When I first met Rosa it finally felt that the future might be getting more secure, and some of the hangings reflect the tales of those more positive times."
