A two-week festival celebrating one of Glasgow's best-loved artists is to be held in the city.
The Creative Mackintosh Festival, honouring the work of architect and designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, will run from October 15 to 28 at venues across Glasgow.
The programme includes a new exhibition of large-scale architect's models alongside recitals, guided walks and performances. Visitors will also be able to try their hand at crafts inspired by Mackintosh's work.
Festival organiser Susan Garnsworthy said: "Mackintosh and his fellow Glasgow artists helped to take art and architecture into the modern era and were crucial figures in the explosion of creativity that characterises the early part of the 20th century.
"We decided, a century on, that we should showcase their work and honour their contribution by encouraging everyone to unleash their own creativity."
Visitors will be encouraged to enjoy recitals and performances in Mackintosh buildings and to roll up their sleeves and try crafts such as drawing, knitting and photography.
A new exhibition, Unbuilt Mackintosh, displays models of Mackintosh buildings that were designed and drawn but never built.
Scottish poet Liz Lochhead will be holding poetry workshops at Mackintosh's Scotland Street School and there will be guided walks taking in some architectural highlights across the city.
Performances include the play When the Moon was Overhead, written by Allan Radcliffe to commemorate the life and work of Frances MacDonald McNair, the younger sister of Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh and one of the much-celebrated Glasgow Four artists.
In all the fortnight will include a total of around 30 activities, performances and events with some surprise "appearances" by Mackintosh himself courtesy of interactive performance company Mischief La Bas.
Councillor Gordon Matheson, leader of Glasgow City Council, said: "We are delighted to be supporting the inaugural Creative Mackintosh Festival, which will be a fantastic showcase of one of Glasgow's most influential and innovative design talents.
"Charles Rennie Mackintosh is a world-renowned cultural icon whose Art Nouveau legacy is a major draw for international visitors to Glasgow today."
Organisers said the full programme will be available from September 18.
