Gallery

From all over Scotland…

Some of Scotland’s finest artists and makers will be showing their work at the new Lochcarron Gallery.  Taking pride of place will be original paintings by Jonathan Shearer (who lives in Easter Ross), etchings by Cat Outram (Edinburgh), silk windings and silver spoons by Helena Emmans (Skye), paintings by Jenny Hepburn (Inverness), mezzotints by Rona MacLean (who grew up on Loch Lomondside), ceramics by Patricia Shone (Skye) and Hilke MacIntyre (Fife), and one of Edinburgh-based Elaine Allison’s intriguing sculptures.

Helena Emmans will be showing off her silk windings and spoons, and there will be original paintings by Jonathan Shearer, etchings by Cat Outram, mezzotints by Rona MacLean and one of Elaine Allison’s intriguing sculptures. Ceramicists Patricia Shone from Skye and Hilke MacIntyre from Fife have also promised work as well as Lochcarron’s own Susan Duncan.  Sitting alongside these works will be paintings by local artists (including Michael Stuart Green, Gillian Pattinson, Carol Cocks and Steven Proudfoot) as well as the three resident artists’ own paintings, etchings, linocuts, mosaics and hand-made wool rugs – and Daniel Young’s beautiful pig (above).

The gallery will also be selling a selection of hand-made crafts, cards, jewellery, candles, soaps and other small gift items, all made in the Highlands. The three artists also hope it will be a great new addition to the South West Ross Arts and Eats Trail.
