What is House for an Art Lover?

Set within the magnificent grounds of Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park and inspired by the designs of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, House for an Art Lover combines art gallery and exhibition space, events venue, café, multipurpose artists studios and magnificent visitor attraction into one unique and inspiring venue.

Originally designed by Mackintosh as an elegant country retreat for a person of taste and culture, today, more than 110 years later, House for an Art Lover exists to stimulate public interest in art, design and architecture. Through its studios, exhibitions, scholarships and access to learning for all ages, it has widened Mackintosh’s original vision to make House for an Art lover a house for everyone.

As part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations for House for an Art Lover a special video was commissioned. We hope that it gives a little snapshot of what the house is all about; how it came to be, how it evolved to what it is today and most importantly a feel for the people who make it what it is!
