The Alasdair Gray Archive holds the collection of original visual artworks, sketches and drawings bequeathed to Gray’s son Andrew and held at the Archive for research and learning purposes. The Archive also houses all Gray’s original prints, a restaging of his working studio set up, a section of his personal library, all Gray publications (including those he designed for others) as well as a section of literary papers, photographs and correspondence.
The Archive is open to the public for bookable visits and through the developing website. This extensive collection of works allows the Archive to present Gray’s work in a number of different contexts; through exhibitions, long term loans to public galleries and museums as well as acting as a catalyst for new commissions. This activity is in line with a core aim of the Archive; to promote, disseminate and educate a local, national and international audience on the life and work of this celebrated cultural polymath.
