This Weekend - 2-4 March 2012
It's the first weekend of March and the days are becoming lighter and warmer - we can all start coming out of hibernation now.
Since it's the first Saturday of the month, the Queens Park Farmers market will be taking place between 10am - 2pm.
If you're in the park, take a walk up to Langside place to the wonderful Langside Cafe - perhaps it's even warm enough for ice cream? There's a new Boutique and Gallery opened at 36 Langside place called Unique Boutique.
Why not take a wander down to Albert Drive, in Polloksheilds. Take in the Mathew Darbyshires new exhibition - T Rooms - his largest public exhibition to date. There will be an exhibition tour by the artist at 2pm on Saturday and at 3pm The Tramway are hosting an afternoon discussion with the artist about the work.
Continue along Albert Drive, until you reach 334, where you will find an exhibition of still life, portrait and landscape paintings by artist Kevin McFall. The exhibition Fragments is being hosted by Albert Drive Studios and is open from 10am - 4pm on Saturday and Sunday.
On Sunday the Church on the Hill are hosting the Whims-icle Fashion and Arts and Craft Fair from 12pm - 5pm

An Afternoon Seminar with Matthew Darbyshire, Owen Hatherly and Rupert Ackroyd.
This Saturday the Tramway are hosting, an afternoon discussion focusing on issues which arise from Matthew Darbyshire’s new commission for Tramway, ‘T Rooms’. The artist will discuss issues which arise from his commission for Tramway, alongside his collaborators on the exhibition Rupert Ackroyd, Jacob Farrell, and Owen Hatherley.
Matthew Darbyshire’s installation T Rooms is a trompe l’oeil style architectural render of a proposed development, although owing to the eerie silence of it all, Tramway’s visitors may suspect that they’ll have to make do with the virtual rendition "until the market picks up". With its computer generated geometry, pixelated curves and uniform proportions, T Rooms suggests an abject, homogenised developers vernacular in which the Mackintosh-style has reduced to a series of bland and generic motifs – is it a bar, spa, bank or boutique? Is it for eating, sleeping, praying or a meeting?
Sat 3 March, 3-5pm
