49/49/49: An Exhibition of Portraits by David Reid
Thursday 7 November – January 2020
Irvine Townhouse, John Galt Gallery
A series of 49 portraits hung together in a seven by seven matrix. Each painting took 49 minutes to paint and is painted on a 49 square inch board. David set himself this challenge for the Courtyard Studios Open Weekend in October 2018. The whole project was completed over 4 weeks. All the people depicted are residents of North Ayrshire.
