‘Voices’ is the final exhibition of the work of this year’s crop of Bridge House Art Portfolio Course Students, running from 1st to 8th March 10am till 5pm at an talla solais, Ullapool Visual Arts, Market Street, Ullapool.
Gathering together at an talla solais from places all over the UK including, Stirling, Oban and Yorkshire. The twelve students will be exhibiting paintings, drawings, sculpture and even an animation that are the product of a winter’s creative work.
The 16-week course runs from the end of October to early March and has been instrumental in helping guide many aspiring artists along the first steps of a creative career. Many of the students go on to apply to art school and all of them go away with a Portfolio bursting with considered yet vibrantly original artwork.
Tiril Planterose, past student who now plays the invaluable technician and tutor support roles comments, “The students this year have been incredibly hard working and have all produced a body of thoughtful and expressive work”.
Bridge House Art, over the past 20 years has brought many people together, drawing students from all across the world including New York and Lithuania, to explore and exploit the natural beauty and the enchanting spirit of the North-West coast. Students are given a solid education in the visual arts, and also something more, an appreciation of their own artistic value and a deep-rooted appreciation for their environment and the world around them.
Eleanor White, course director, who this year celebrates 20 years of Bridge House Art and 15 years of the Portfolio Course, says, “The gallery has been transformed overnight from studio spaces into an excellent show, a huge congratulations to all the students involved, please come along and see the variety of work produced”.
