Selectors for the Big Art Show

The Big Art Show has been put together by a panel of trusted artists and volunteers who helped choose from over 1200 submissions. We are very grateful for their hard work and dedication over the last year in bringing the mission to life of creating Paisley’s largest ever open exhibition. Working in partnership to achieve this aim were exhibition organisers, Outspoken Arts; Art Paisley Ltd – a new Scottish charity; and the Society of Scottish Artists (SSA).
