Paisley Art Institute: Online ticketed event – Entry by Zoom link.

PAINTING THE PANDEMIC – ‘bog roll’ art – an imaginative and realistic artistic response to Covid-19 – Mandy McIntosh online discussion with Caroline Gormley.


The Covid-19 pandemic has generated a swathe of creative responses from artists; so much so that the 132nd Paisley Art Institute Annual Online has a dedicated virtual viewing room ‘Lockdown’ showing crisis responsive artworks.

Within her own practice, Paisley Art Institute Vice President, Caroline Gormley, has been documenting her personal response to social distancing through painting a sequence of oil paintings on what she had at hand when lockdown was declared – a roll of Andrex toilet paper!

Join Caroline and visual artist Mandy McIntosh in a conversation exploring some of the work responding to lockdown in #PAI132 and her own ‘bog roll’ works in response to the pandemic.

Any questions you would like to ask – send them to by Thursday 27 August – and we will try to fit them in.

Spaces are limited – book fast, so that you do not miss out…!
