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.

A Last Sitting, Stuart Cairns

Showing in The Room until 8 September - and running in parallel with As Coastline is to Ocean - is the micro-exhibition Coast. This exhibition originated from an open call and, over the next seven weeks, will feature a rotating selection of artworks by twenty artists on the topic of coastal change.

Further information on the exhibition - including information about all of the twenty selected artists and a list of the artworks currently on show - is available here.

Information about all artists who have exhibited their work in The Room in recent years, can be found in the Artists’ Gallery.

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.
