The ship­ping news

Scottish Field - - FIELD CULTURE -

Ship­yard, an ex­hi­bi­tion cap­tur­ing the work at ship­yards on the Clyde and Forth, cre­ated by renowned Scot­tish artist and broad­caster Lach­lan Goudie, will be held at the Glas­gow Art Club this sum­mer. Ship­yard brings to life the com­plex­ity and beauty of mod­ern con­struc­tion meth­ods as well as some of the faces of the thou­sands of ship­yard work­ers who help build th­ese gi­ant ves­sels. Ship­yard draws from hun­dreds of im­ages that Goudie cre­ated at Scot­stoun, Go­van and Rosyth over a seven-year pe­riod. Runs from 11 May-7 June. A new ex­hi­bi­tion at the Na­tional Mu­seum will ex­plore how the mi­cro­scope helped pro­mote an in­ter­est in the nat­u­ral sciences through public demon­stra­tions and a num­ber of spe­cial in­ter­est groups and publi­ca­tions. Highlight ob­jects in­clude a so­lar mi­cro­scope used to wow 18th-cen­tury au­di­ences at pop­u­lar science shows and a ‘Mu­seum Mi­cro­scope’ for vis­i­tors to view mi­cro­scopic spec­i­mens, de­signed by Francis Grant Ogilvie, a for­mer di­rec­tor of the mu­seum from 1900–1903. En­try is free. The ex­hi­bi­tion runs un­til 29 Septem­ber.
