Our Opening Exhibition

8 Apr

Our first day was fabulous in so many ways, and thank you to our many amazing friends who volunteered lots of help to make it happen. We’ve had lots of enthusiastic reaction from the visitors; many left with something they’d found irresistible.

The opening “Moods of the Minch” exhibition is by Marion Boddy-Evans, who will be at the gallery over the Easter weekend to talk about her work and sign copies of her book about her paintings. Seven of Marion’s paintings were sold during the day, including the one of the very wet sheep (“Huddling“) that was featured in West Highland Free Press piece on us.

That's artist Marion Boddy-Evans on the left, talking to a visitor about her "Uig at Night" and "Summer Storm" paintings.

There’s plenty more in the gallery too, such as our craft kits, scarves from Skyeweavers, work by this year’s resident artist Jeremy Rossiter, Woolly-Bits, tweed handbags, candles… Watch this space as we’ll be posting photos of this over the next few days.

    Visited Skyeworks today-WOW!! What a fantastic bright space. Not just all the lovely pieces that lifted my mood but that blast of wonderful natural light. Marion’s paintings looked stunning and capture the changing guises of the Minch beautifully. Great to see all the other work from local makers too. Good Luck with this exciting new venture see you all soon, Lynn.

    Congratulations on your new hall upstairs, it looks very spacious and good for exhibitions and social events. I am sure it would be a good place for people to have exhibition and to promote local arts, and place that people would like to come to visit.
