The Sharmanka theatre/ gallery is astounding. In any other city it would be considered one of the foremost tourist attractions and people would be queueing round the corner to get in. Yet when we visited today we were the only people there. There needs to be much more publicity about these amazing kinetic sculptures. Some of them were the centrepiece of Glasgow's MOMA when it first opened to the public and the daily performances at lunchtime were a draw for hundreds of people. It was crazy that the city council removed them and replaced them with uninspiring and instantly forgettable installations. I would urge any visitors to the city to ignore MOMA and head to the Transmission gallery in Trongate where Sharmanka is situated. Transmission also has The Glasgow Print Studio and a fantastic Russian cafe. You won't be disappointed.
