                    [title] => Charles Rennie Mackintosh Making the Glasgow Style
                    [tags] => Art & Design
                    [shortdesc] => 2018 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of celebrated Glasgow architect, designer and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868?1928). Glasgow Museums is delighted to celebrate this significant anniversary with a major new temporary exhibition at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. This exhibition will be one of the key events in the city-wide Mackintosh 2018 programme. 

The exhibition will span the lifetime of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868?1928) and taking a chronological and thematic narrative, placing Mackintosh at the core of the story, it will present his work in the context of Glasgow, his key predecessors, influences and contemporaries, particularly those working in the Glasgow Style. 

?The Glasgow Style' is the popular term given to the design and decorative arts centred around the work by teachers, students and graduates of The Glasgow School of Art produced between about 1890 and 1920. At the core of this style is the work of The Four: Charles Rennie Mackintosh, his future wife Margaret Macdonald, her younger sister Frances Macdonald and Frances's future husband, James Herbert McNair. Glasgow was the birthplace of the only Art Nouveau ?movement' in the UK and its style made ripples internationally.

This exhibition will present the very best of Glasgow's internationally important civic collections, drawing from both those of Glasgow Museums and The Mitchell Library and Archives. A number of these civic works have never previously been on public display, and the majority has not been shown in Glasgow for 30 or more years. The exhibition will also include important loans from private and public collections. About 250 objects will be on display across the full spectrum of media, including stained glass, ceramics, mosaic, metalwork, furniture, stencilling, embroidery, graphics, books, interiors and architecture. The act of making will be communicated across this breadth of media ? both through the exhibition and the accompanying event programme ? to truly engage and inspire audiences of all ages to visit the other Mackintosh-related buildings and collections in and around Glasgow, and to make and create.

                    [longdesc] => ?Good morning, Earth!? That is how Colonel Chris Hadfield?writing on Twitter?woke up the world every day while living for five months aboard the International Space Station.   Through his 21-years as an astronaut, three spaceflights and 2600 orbits of Earth, Colonel Hadfield has become a worldwide sensation, harnessing the power of social media to make outer space accessible to millions and infusing a sense of wonder into our collective consciousness not felt since humanity first walked on the Moon. Called ?the most famous astronaut since Neil Armstrong,? Colonel Hadfield continues to bring the marvels of science and space travel to everyone he encounters.   Colonel Hadfield is a pioneer of many historic ?firsts?. In 1992, he was selected by the Canadian Space Agency as a NASA Mission Specialist?Canada's first fully-qualified Space Shuttle crew member. Three years later, aboard Shuttle Atlantis, he was the first Canadian to operate the Canadarm in space, and the first Canadian to board a Russian spacecraft as he helped build space station ?Mir.? In 2001, aboard Shuttle Endeavour, Colonel Hadfield performed two spacewalks?the first Canadian to do so?and, in 2013, he was Commander of the International Space Station?the first and only Canadian to ever command a spaceship?so far.   During his multi-faceted career, Colonel Hadfield has intercepted Soviet bombers in Canadian airspace, lived on the ocean floor, been NASA's Director of Operations in Russia, and recorded science and music videos seen by hundreds of millions.   A heavily decorated astronaut, engineer, and pilot, Colonel Hadfield's many awards include receiving the Order of Canada, the Meritorious Service Cross, and the NASA Exceptional Service Medal. He was named the Top Test Pilot in both the US Air Force and the US Navy, and has been inducted into Canada's Aviation Hall of Fame.   Colonel Hadfield is the author of two internationally bestselling books, An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth and You Are Here, and has been commemorated on Canadian postage stamps, Royal Canadian Mint coins, and on Canada's newest five dollar bill (along with fellow astronauts Steve MacLean and Dave Williams).
