Exhibitions at Motherwell Concert Hall


11 November – 16 December 2019

Leaving – Creative Writing Class Work

CultureNL’s Creative Writing Groups have used the theme ‘Leaving’ to create an exhibition of work that showcases their talent. We’ve heard a lot through the news and media about ‘leaving’ in the past few years whether that be Brexit, political careers, asylum seekers and refugees being deported or natural disasters driving people from their homelands. ‘Leaving’ can be an emotive subject area on a world, local or personal level and as such is a great theme for writers to explore.



20 January – 20 April

Charlie Yates

A recent graduate of Glasgow School of Art, Charlie is now based in Glasgow and Edinburgh. His work is made up of observations and partially recalled places, objects and memories in the form of sketches, photographs and verbal recordings. He attempts to re-contextualize these experiences, the fragmented nature of memory is suggested within his paintings.

Through recent research, he discovered Lambay a private island off the East coast Dublin. On a trip to the island he came across an abandoned ‘Real’ tennis court and the desolate nature of this space heightened his own sense of isolation. A burgeoning interest in this unusual place stimulated an extended body of work, some of which we are fortunate to have on display in North Lanarkshire.

11 May – 27 July
