Art lovers head for vil­lage show

Campbeltown Courier - - DISTRICTS -

KIN­TYRE cre­atives col­lected to­gether at Clachan’s an­nual art exhibition.

Last week­end’s vil­lage hall show, in­clud­ing paint­ing, photography, sculp­ture and wood­turn­ing, at­tracted col­lec­tors from across and out­with the re­gion.

One fam­ily vis­it­ing from Lon­don said that they have bought many items from Clachan in a 20-year pe­riod of col­lect­ing.

In ad­di­tion to show­ing the best of the re­gion’s work from the past year, there was a live paint­ing and draw­ing com­pe­ti­tion for chil­dren on the themes of Scot­land, magic or di­nosaurs. Their ef­forts were im­me­di­ately dis­played.

Jan McNair’s Bay of

Storms was an early seller. It cap­tured rollers on the shore be­tween Los­sit Point and the Gaul­drons.

Mrs McNair, who has been paint­ing for 30 years, said that her yearly out­put is usu­ally be­tween six and eight paint­ings but this year she only com­pleted one can­vas.


Jan McNair’s Bay of Storms headed for a new home af­ter the show.


Neve Evans, six, and her brother Louis, three, are en­grossed draw­ing pic­tures for the young­sters’ art com­pe­ti­tion.


Gaia Sil­van’s mu­ral, Liv­ing Land­scape, Bali­nakill, painted on an old six-foot board and dis­played out­side the hall, was on sale for of­fers.


Many peo­ple bought turned wooden items.
