An Talla Solais is Ullapool's visual arts centre and we have two galleries that host a range of contemporary artwork throughout the year.
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 entry is always free.
We are currently closed but will reopen again at the end of February. Our opening hours are from 10am to 1:30pm and then again from 2pm to 5pm every day during exhibitions.
An Talla Solais gallery is currently closed but will reopen on 6 April 2019 with the first exhibition of our 2019 programme, Botanical. The exhibition will feature paintings, drawings and sculptural work with a botanical or arboreal theme from selected members of the Royal Scottish Academy.
Further information on the exhibition, with details of the artworks on show, will be available here shortly.
A series of workshops that will encourage participants to explore their own ‘botanically themed creativity’ in a variety of different media has been arranged to accompany this exhibition. An outline of the workshops and details for signing up are available here.
The Room is currently closed and will reopen on 6 April 2019.
Details of the artwork and artists who will feature in our next exhibition will be available here in March.
In the meantime, information about all of the artists who have exhibited their work in The Room over the past year can be found in the Artists’ Gallery.
EVENTS, activities and
open call for summer micro-exhibition @ ATS
In the run up to Visit Scotland’s Year of Coasts & Waters (2020), An Talla Solais, in collaboration with artists David Cass, Joseph Calleja and the estate of Robert Callender, are seeking applicants for a micro-exhibition, Coast, which will be shown at the same time as our summer exhibition As Coastline is to Ocean, by Calleja and Cass. More details about the exhibition and how to make your submission are available here.
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. Proposals for our 2020 exhibition programme will be considered in April 2019. If you would like to be considered for 2020, please submit your proposal by the end of March.
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.
From artists' talks to clay workshops, have a look at what's coming up.
