Glasgow has consistently maintained its position as one of the UK's most prominent arenas for visual arts boasting outstanding public art galleries amidst its vast architectural contrasts. From exquisite portfolios of fine art by Europe's most prolific artists to a myriad of contemporary visual art by local artists, Glasgow's Art Galleries and Exhibition Spaces will appeal to a variety of tastes.

Situated in the cultural heart of the city, the Gallery of Modern Art presents a captivating array of 20th and 21st Century visual art, encompassing cutting-edge metallic and wooden sculptures.

St. Mungo's Museum of Religious Life and Art enthrals visitors with its unparalleled collection of religious paintings. It is also home to the most ornate stained glass windows featuring early Christian Saints and the magnificent painting of the Hindu God 'Shiva'.

The work of world renowned architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh is celebrated by many of the city’s galleries. He designed various buildings in Glasgow for example House for an Art Lover and The Lighthouse; both of these are acclaimed for their exhibitions, art and design.

The Burrell Collection, situated in Pollok Country Park, boasts over 9,000 works of art from all periods and parts of the world. The pride and joy of Glasgow, however, is undoubtedly the recently refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
