Here are a few photos from our opening night at Bar Ten – almost a month ago!  Since then we have hosted three great talks, and we’re really pleased with how this exhibition has turned out.

Check out the rest of the photos here All photos (c) Michael James Photography.



A Happy New Year from all of us at Any And Or!  2013 has been a very exciting year for our collective, and to round it off we thought we would have a small recap of two exhibitions that we were recently involved in.


All The Small Things was organised, curated and hosted by Michelle Cohen, Director of Grey Wolf Graphics.  Small by name, small by nature – all works presented in the exhibition were to be no larger than 18″ x 18″,  making for an interesting collection of works from many different artists and a great opportunity for Any And Or to exhibit with others.

In the Christmas spirit, Tatiana showed a new forensic facial composite of St Nicholas, whilst the other Any And Or artists showed other small pieces that you may have seen in our 2013 shows at Coburg House and the Six Foot Gallery.

All The Small Things will continue until mid January 2014 when Any And Or will take over the whole venue for their next group exhibition.  Keep an eye out for more details early in the New Year.

THE HAND THAT FEEDS    OneCubeOrTwo Gallery, 134 Fleming House, Renfrew Street, Glasgow

The Hand That Feeds was organised and curated by Stu Murphy, co founder of artists open collective ROCKPAPERVIDEO, and Rebecca Glen, Director of Creative Banter and Merge, in conjunction with Tell It Slant Poetry Bookshop.

Together Stu and Rebecca put on a successful launch night on the Friday 13th December, including live music, wine and mince pies.  Tell It Slant launched the night by inviting authors and poets to do a reading in the space. 


Despite a very festive atmosphere and a great response, the exhibition unfortunately had to close early following the storms that hit the UK in December.

Any And Or was partly represented at The Hand That Feeds, with Tatiana, Ana and Helen exhibiting. On behalf of the collective, Tatiana also helped by contributing to a charity food-bank for the launch night with much collected for those in need.

Tatiana took some snaps of the launch event:

Tatiana Der Parthough – In Your Face Triptych (2013)

Once again Any And Or would like to thank all for their support in 2013.  We are very much looking forward to the upcoming year and hope to see many of you at our upcoming exhibitions!

The Six Foot Gallery, where we recently held an exhibition, has included us in their winter magazine!  The eight page feature includes a very complimentary introduction to the collective from the six foot gallery, and additional focus pages on each of the artists.

For the magazine we were each interviewed about our roles within the collective and what we hope to achieve in the future.

We got blogged!

James of wrote a lovely blog about our exhibition.

“It was a really interesting exhibit with some not too strenuous involvement, which is always fun. Each artist has something different to offer, from the raw works by Ana Hine dealing with obscenity, shame and sexual repression, to the fun and quirky paper-cut dresses by Tatiana der Parthogh who expresses how females are defined through superficial judgements.”

Any And Or’s very own Tatiana Der Parthogh will be graduating in a couple of weeks with her first Masters!  Over the past year Tat has been working ridiculously hard on the MSc Forensic Art programme, and for her final project has had the prestigious opportunity to work on a recreation of the skull of Francisco Goya.

Those of you who visited us at Coburg House in the last week of our show in July will have seen Tat working away on the production of her dissertation in between sunbathing breaks in the glorious sunshine!
