"i suppose I should iill them with plants

or something . . .' Liz Rodgers was talking about the row oi spare toilets on display in the top window oi the Metro Gallery which opened last week.

Not everyone would choose a plumber’s shop as a showcase tor works at art, but Liz has discreetly shiited her iather’s long-standing business (John D. Morton est. 1767) into a back oitice to make way ior paintings and prints by Glasgow artists in the iront room. Visitors to the gallery could be temporarily distracted by the sight oi men rushing out to mend emergency leaks, but some will doubtless be charmed by a scene ol Scottish eccentricity and others might purchase a print as well as a new set oi taps.

An ex-student ot the Glasgow School oi Art, Liz has been selling her decorative painted copper panels and nameplates alongside her iather's more iunctional ceramics iorthe past two years, but has always wanted to run her own gallery. The works she has

chosen to exhibit reveal the rich diversity oi the Glasgow art world, from Ernest Hood’s atmospheric gouaches oi the West End to the bold silkcreens oi Dominic Snyder to the delicate etchings oi John McKechnie.

Towards Christmas Liz plans to mount an exhibition oi work by her iormer tutor in the textile department, Chuck Mitchell. A iew oi his resin on slate panels, which strangely combine oriental and medieval motlis, have already attracted much attention. People are also intrigued by Duncan McLeod’s mixed media landscapes and Jonathan Robertson’s cryptically titled aquatints.

All the exhibits are lor sale and prices range irom £18 to £120. Future shows may include pottery and ceramics but the iront oi 713 Great Western Road will be more oi a gallery than a shop. ‘There won't be any mass-produced objects’, says Liz, 1 want to provide a iorum tor the work oi young artists in the city.’
