A SPECIALIST model maker is finalising the display of his specially-commissioned Charles Rennie Mackintosh architectural models for a new exhibition on the Scottish designer, based in Glasgow.

Brian Gallagher will unveil the six models, which will form part of The Hunterian’s special exhibition, Mackintosh Architecture, to the public from Friday 18 July.

The models are designed to realize in three-dimensions six unbuilt projects by Mackintosh; an Artist’s house in the town, an Artist’s house in the country, three proposals for a gate lodge, and an unidentified house in Kilmacolm.

Gallagher, the Scottish model maker, is based in Biggar, Lanarkshire. Architectural models are his speciality, and he has produced major models of the Glasgow School of Art, the Willow Tea Rooms, Scotland Street School, The Hill House, and House for an Art Lover. His models have been exhibited at prestigious venues in the UK and US.

The exhibition will run from the 18th July through to the 4th January 2015 at The Hunterian Art gallery in Glasgow.
