An Talla Solais is Ullapool's visual arts centre. We have two galleries that host a range of contemporary artwork throughout the year as well as a number of art rooms, studios and project spaces for use by local and visiting artists.

Cabinet, the shop based in our gallery, sells a range of artwork, crafts, jewellery and homewares from artists and makers across Scotland.

Our Gallery is located on West Argyle Street and our opening hours are from 10am to 1:30pm and then again from 2pm to 5pm every day during exhibitions. Entry is always free.

The art rooms, studios and project spaces are located in our Market Street building and more information on these and other available resources can be found here.

 

exhibitions

main gallery

Tow, Peter Davis

Two artists whose work evokes the power of northern landscapes through watercolour are showing their work in stillness and flow, the current exhibition at An Talla Solais Gallery and running until 14 July. 

Peter Davis, who is based in Shetland, and Susan Macintosh, who lives in the north east of Scotland, both use watercolours enhanced with natural pigments, chalk and inks to explore the light, weather, rock and earth of their respective landscapes. The results are simple and graceful.

Both artists are attuned to the nature of watercolour as a medium and what can be achieved when the relationship between paper, pigment and water is allowed to behave by its own rules.

Further information on the exhibition, including a list of the artwork on show, is available here

Opportunities

exhibiting @ ATS

An Talla Solais runs an annual programme of exhibitions from April to December each year featuring both emerging and established artists. The programme is open to both international and UK based artists from a wide range of artistic backgrounds. We welcome exhibition proposals at any time from artists who would like to show with us and further details about the application process can be found here.

events & activities

A range of events and activities run alongside our exhibitions with a programme that is structured in a way that we hope will allow visitors to consider for themselves the processes, themes and issues explored by the artwork on show and perhaps to have a go at some of the creative techniques involved.
