Billy Connolly Display In Glasgow

24 August 2015, 12:00

A new exhibition showcasing Billy Connolly's "extraordinary'' artwork will open to the public this week.

More than 40 drawings will go on display at the People's Palace in Glasgow alongside objects from a collection charting his early career as a comedian and musician.

Talking about the artwork, Connolly said: "I don't want them to be judged. I didn't want to put them in a position where people would like or dislike them.

"They're little pals of mine. I'll always draw, I'll always do it.''

Sadie Docherty, Lord Provost of Glasgow, said: "Billy Connolly needs no introduction to the people of Glasgow.

"His boundless talent as a comedian, actor and presenter makes him one of Scotland's most famous sons.

"Five years ago, Mr Connolly was made a Freeman of the City of Glasgow, so it is fitting that his extraordinary works of art are to be displayed in Glasgow for the city's people and visitors to enjoy.''

The exhibition opens on Friday and runs until February 21.
