Uist Arts Association (UAA) has opened its first ever summer exhibition at Taigh Chearsabhagh.
With over 50 pieces of work by UAA members on display, including watercolour, oils, photography and sculptures, the show has something for everyone. All of the works, with a strong Hebrides theme, are from established local artists or with a strong connection to the island.
The show, which takes place in the café and both studios one and two, runs from 3rd to 25th July. The opening was attended by artists exhibiting works and visitors eager to view the new exhibition. Some of the works have already been sold though will remain on show until the end of the exhibition.
The 2015 show has an open theme this year and the works cover a wide range of talent from water colours to oils, sculptures and prints, covering the Hebrides, wildlife, abstracts and structures.
UAA chair, Louise Cook, said: “We have had a fabulous response from our membership in submitting work for this event. The quality of work on display is clear and the show is attracting a positive response.”
Next year’s exhibition theme will specifically tie in with the islands rich history of archaeology and the UAA is looking forward to the diverse and complex look into Hebridean history as envisaged by their members.
