A touring retrospective of sculpture by Tim Stead complimented by furniture and artworks inspired by Tim and created by friends: 1973-2000

This is the final exhibition to be originated prior to Tim Stead’s unique, family home, The Steading, and its contents being passed to the Prince’s Regeneration Trust in partnership with the Scottish Borders Council. It comprises of a collection of quiet, contemplative and enigmatic works which demand a multi-sensory appreciation, including works made in the last year of his life, described by Julian Spalding as a radical revival of the art of sculpture at its purest and most abstract.

Tim Stead MBE (1952-2000) studied at Trent Polytechnic and the Glasgow School of Art, graduating in 1975, and lived for most of his working life in Blainslie in a house embellished with, and embodying his sculpture and furniture. Acutely environmentally conscious, he led a successful campaign to establish a Community Woodland in the Scottish Borders and to encourage new makers, set up the Woodschool in the same area. He was an accomplished sculptor, furniture maker, poet, photographer, teacher and environmentalist but is probably best known for his extraordinary public commissions including: the adventurous and much loved, interior of Café Gandolfi, Glasgow (1979); the Papal Throne made for the visit of Pope John Paul II to Edinburgh (1981), The Memorial Chapel in the kirk of St Nicholas, Aberdeen (1989) and The Peephole created for the Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow (1996). 

Curated by Laura Hamilton, former Director of the Collins Gallery, University of Strathclyde, in close collaboration with Maggy Stead Lenert, widow of Tim Stead and retired Director of the Tim Stead Workshop.
