A chance to shine for Ar­gyll’s young artists

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A SHOW­CASE of young artis­tic tal­ent will light up Lochgilp­head.

An ex­hi­bi­tion ‘Into the Light’ fea­tur­ing new work by up-and­com­ing artists will be on dis­play in the barn at Achnabreck Farm­house, just out­side Lochgilp­head on Septem­ber 16 and 17.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will host a huge va­ri­ety of art, rang­ing from sculp­ture and paint­ing to video and mu­sic. Most of the works on show will be avail­able for pur­chase.

This of­fers one of the few op­por­tu­ni­ties for young artists in Ar­gyll to show­case their artis­tic tal­ent in an open ex­hi­bi­tion, with all the ex­hibitors un­der the age of 25.

‘We are re­ally ex­cited to be able to show­case the in­cred­i­ble tal­ent of the young artists within our area,’ said 16-year-old Holly Smith - co-or­gan­iser of the event with Beth Qual­ter Bun­call, aged 17.

Beth and Holly have been hold­ing art work­shops with lo­cal pri­mary schools, al­low­ing pupils to learn new tech­niques to ex­press their artis­tic tal­ents. Some of th­ese won­der­ful art­works will also be on dis­play at the ex­hi­bi­tion.

Run­ning along­side the ex­hi­bi­tion will be an art lucky dip, where mem­bers of the public can pur­chase a mys­tery piece of art­work for just £5.

The ex­hi­bi­tion is open be­tween 10am and 5pm on both days. En­try is free, but park­ing is very lim­ited.
