Paul Musgrove - owner at Gallery TEN
Paul Musgrove studied Furniture and Glass making at Manchester Metropolitan, graduating in 1980. He went on to join “The Glassworks” in Edinburgh with Jenny Antonio in 1982, subsequently taking over the business and continued as owner/maker until 1990. Worked as organiser for “The Tent Co”, the annual Edinburgh Festival applied arts show in Prince’s Street Gardens from 1982 to 1992. He is still a practising artist, printmaker and glassmaker.
Musgrove established Gallery TEN in 2012, in partnership with artist and fellow printmaker Gill Tyson, after setting up the SpeKtrum Print Collective in 2011. The gallery was set up primarily to support Scottish printmaking artists, after Tyson’s departure in 2013 the gallery remit broadened to encompass the applied arts sector, specifically internationally studio made glass. The gallery had a major glass exhibition during the Edinburgh Festival “Glass2015” representing over 35 artists and makers. It has also taken part in “COLLECT” at the Saatchi Gallery the annual Craft Council applied arts show. In the 2016 Festival the gallery put on “The Cathedral Collection” an extraordinary and acclaimed glass collection from international glass makers Baldwin & Guggisberg in St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh. During 2017 the gallery hosted the SGS Annual Show their first members exhibition in a commercial gallery. Most recently and notably in 2018 the gallery held the “Lindean Mill at 40" anniversary exhibition, a great tribute to their continuing skills, attention to detail and artistic creativity. There have also been print exhibitions from Picasso, Matisse and Miró; plus ceramics from Anne Mette Hjortshoj, Denmark and Takeshi Yasuda, Japan. 2019 saw the first gallery show in photography, with newly editioned archive prints by the late Chick Chalmers.
