Skyeworks Exhibitions 2017/18

Skyeworks Painting by Morag ArcherCall for Artists and Makers: Skyeworks Gallery 2017/18

Skyeworks Gallery, a natural-light gallery in Portree on the Isle of Skye, is seeking work from artists and makers for various exhibitions in 2017.

Skyeworks is the largest gallery on Skye, with 200 square metres of floor space. We added 25 running metres of flexible wall space this year, bringing the total hanging space to just over 60 metres. This means we can create niche exhibitions of tiny works or hang huge canvases.

We hold several exhibitions a year with the intention of representing a diverse and interesting collection of artwork suited to both the local and visitor market. We consider all submissions, giving special attention to suitability of theme, specific relation to exhibition title, and whether the work emits a sense of time and place. Our preference firstly is for artists residing in Skye and Lochalsh, then on the Scottish islands, Scottish Highlands and thereafter radiating south and across the border.
