Great tour and Ruth was a knowledgeable, enthusiastic and gracious guide. Really helped us get a better sense not only of the art scene in Glasgow today (and its history) but also was a great frame to get a better understanding of Glasgow itself. Only disappointment - not Context or Ruth's fault! - was not being able to see the Art School (tragic) and the timing of our visit meant that many galleries and art spaces were not open or between shows. More to look forward to the next time!
Ms Ezra was whip smart, energetic, and professional. Her broad and deep academic training enabled us to learn about art and architecture, history and techniques from the late 1890s to now. And she is very nice.
Good survey with a well prepared and personable guide. We would have liked to visit with more artists but realize this was not possible since somany galleries are closed in August. The visit to the Briggate was a highlight.
