VISUAL ARTS ARTIST IN RESIDENCE WaterWorks Barrhead Since Summer 2016 James Gow has been artist in residence at the Waterworks, Barrhead; winner of ‘Best Environment Project’ in the National Lottery Awards 2016. During his residency, James has engaged hundreds of members of the local community and general public in creating lasting and transitional art work on the site. James has developed specific projects in partnership with primary and secondary schools across East Renfrewshire, supporting the curriculum whilst creating a legacy of artwork for the site that reflects the evolving natural habit. Specific seasonal art activities have included an eco-art camp during the summer holidays, willowweaving, pumpkin harvesting and carving.
