Tom Shanks RSW RGI PAI (1921 – 2020)

Paisley Art Institute Diplomate Tom Shanks was a respected and admired artist; PAI are saddened to hear that Tom is no longer with us and send condolences to his family and his many friends.  Encompassing all shades from the dramatic to calm, his watercolour paintings uniquely evoked the atmosphere and beauty of Scotland; his contributions to the Institute’s Annual Exhibitions will be missed. 

A graduate of Glasgow School of Art, he had many and varied creative skills, and his life will continue to resonate through his work.
