Call to Artists: Home to the Hills Charity Exhibition

Home to Hills Charity Exhibition at Skyeworks Isle of Skye for Skye Mountain Rescue TeamCall to Artists

Whether you love to dabble, are a professional artist, or somewhere in between, Skyeworks Gallery invites you to paint a canvas on the theme “Home to the Hills” to help raise funds for the Skye Mountain Rescue Team.

The artworks, sized 25 x 25 cm and unsigned, will be exhibited for sale from 6 October 2014. The wall price is set at £75.00, with a minimum of £25.00 from each sale donated to the charity.

Last year we held a similar exhibition (see photos on our Facebook page), and raised over £1,500 towards the boat restoration for the Row St Kilda to Skye event. This year our intention is to reach a target of £2,000 for Skye Mountain Rescue

Entry fee: £5.00 per artwork, or the purchase of a 25 x 25cm canvas, for £5.00, from Skyeworks Gallery, qualifies as its entry fee.

There is no limit to how many pieces you can enter. Artwork may be in any medium but we ask that artists refrain from signing the canvas on the front.

A certificate of authentication should be provided or one will be filled out on delivery of your artwork(s). This will be presented to the buyer on purchase.

All pieces will be priced at £75 with no exception. A minimum of £25 per sale (or other amount as nominated by the artist) will be donated to Skye Mountain Rescue, the balance to the artist. Skyeworks Gallery will not take a commission on this exhibition, ensuring the highest benefit to both the charity and the artists.

We ask that all works are delivered to Skyeworks Gallery by Wednesday 1 October 2014. The artwork should have d-rings and wire on the back so it can be hung from a hook.

Coming in May: Edges Exhibition

Skyeworks 2014 Exhibition Poster Scotland Art

Join us in May for an exhibition of new paintings by Marion Boddy-Evans inspired by an island on the edge, the Isle of Skye. In this new body of work, Marion sets about exploring aspects of Skye that intrigue and inspire here: where sea meets land, river meets bank, croftland turns into woodland, mountain meets the sky, light to dark, as well as the edge between realism and abstract painting styles.
