Art lovers head for village show
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.
Wood sculpture The Highest Apple by Henry Murdo from Arran was not for sale.
