Hard-hit­ting art­work for Shel­ter mile­stone

Evening Express (City Final) - - Scotland Today -

A HARD-HIT­TING art­work will be dis­played at three char­ity shops in the North-east to mark its 50th an­niver­sary. Shel­ter Scot­land will fea­ture the piece, cre­ated by young de­sign­ers from the Glas­gow School of Art (GSA), to mark the oc­ca­sion.

Third year com­mu­ni­ca­tion de­sign stu­dents Claire Mcnally and An­drew John­ston’s de­sign takes the shape of a noticeboard which dis­plays house­hold bills, re­ceipts and ar­rears let­ters to rep­re­sent those who strug­gle to keep a roof over their heads.

The dis­play will be in all Shel­ter Scot­land’s 37 shops, in­clud­ing on Union Street and Ge­orge Street in Aberdeen and at its shop on Broad Street, Fraser­burgh.

Graeme Brown, di­rec­tor of the char­ity, said: “The de­sign in the shape of a noticeboard de­picts all too clearly the strug­gles faced by many fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als in Scot­land to make ends meet and keep a roof over their heads. “I en­cour­age lo­cal peo­ple to visit the shops and take in the mes­sages this ex­cel­lent work con­veys.”
