Due to things beyond our control this year’s Lochalsh Art Fair will be later that usual – from 11th to 14th September. Apologies if this change causes inconvenience. We think it might be an improvement! It will run for a shorter time but will include an opening afternoon with teas and music on Sunday 11th. We’ll be posting more info soon and sending out invites to artists shortly.
From the comments book: “What a stunning exhibition, every year never fails to amaze me.” “Every year gets better and better.” “We have been to many art exhibits in the UK. This is the best” “A fantastic show – what a varied range of artwork.” “Love the variety of media and subject matter. So many showstoppers”
Thanks again to all contributors and helpers.
This years show features 121 works from 49 artists, and there’s still a day left to see it. (open til 9pm this evening and tomorrow until 4pm). Here’s some photos:
Thank you everyone who has helped make the Art Fair possible.
Only a few weeks to got to this years Art Fair – we have sent out information to artists, but if we’ve missed you please get in touch. (Most of the info is on the info page of the website.) This years poster features the most popular painting from last year, by Nicky Dagnall.
One of our favourite artists, Barabara Harrild is holding an exhibition with photographer Sam Nicolson in Plockton Hall next week – May 4th – 9th (closed on 7th) 10am-4pm.
This years Art Fair will be on 22nd to 26th August, in Dornie Hall as usual. Looking forward to seeing you all and this years new pictures. We will be sending out information to artists nearer the time, but if you want to know more have a look at the info for exhibitors page or drop us an email. Also email us if you haven’t exhibited with us before and would like to.
Phew, that went by quickly! A good turnout again this year for the Art Fair with lots of good comments & feedback, locals and visitors alike and the local schools had a good time visiting as ever. Strathprint chose 7 pictures to go in their next years calender. This years favourite picture as chosen by you folks was Nicky Dagnall’s Stormy Skye (featuring two wild looking sheep). We look forward to seeing it on next years poster. Although the number of pictures was down on last year, sales were up. About 25% of paintings sold. Not sure why, maybe there were just more good pictures…who knows?
Thanks to everyone who helped out and contributed, and everyone who came along too. Looking forward to next years now!
A busy night last night at the preview. Great to see everyone and catch up with lots of local artists and other friends. Thanks to Manuela’s Wee Bakery, Lenice Townend, and the West Highland Dairy for the catering and some great music from the Renewables (Donald and Harvey). We’re open through til Wednesday with a late opening night on Tuesday (9pm) – hope to see you.
