Sam Harley

Drawing and Painting

Glasgow School of Art


Sam M Harley lives and works in Glasgow. She will return to The Glasgow School of Art to study for a MLitt in Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art).

In 2018 she studied at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Canada. Harley has exhibited in group shows in Canada, New York and Edinburgh. Once lockdown is lifted, Harley will show work at the CCA in Glasgow and in a charity shop in Edinburgh.

Harley’s practice explores ideas of everyday aesthetics with a focus on mundane throwaway objects. She up-cycles objects to create a tension between high art and the disused.
