Elite academy hon­our for Mhairi

The Oban Times - - Leisure -

IONA artist, Mhairi Killin, has been elected as an RSA, a mem­ber of the Royal Scot­tish Academy.

Mhari, renowned for her jew­ellery, draw­ing, sculp­ture and in­stil­la­tion art, has joined a group of only 120 artists and ar­chi­tects known as RSAs.

RSA’s can only be nom­i­nated and elected by other RSA mem­bers. This award recog­nises her wide achieve­ment in artis­tic en­deav­our.

Mhairi is also a found­ing mem­ber of the artists’ col­lec­tive, 6° WEST which formed to cre­ate a dis­tinc­tive cul­tural voice for con­tem­po­rary art prac­tice on Mull and Iona, the High­lands and Is­lands, the UK and in­ter­na­tion­ally.
