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.

main gallery

For the next six weeks, our main Gallery will be showing Impossible Colonies, an installation by Kotryna Ula Kiliulyte, featuring photography, moving image, printmaking and sculptural objects.

Further information on the exhibition is available here.

This exhibition is part of FLOW Photofest 2019, the international photography festival of the Highlands and Islands, which is taking place over the next two months at a number of venues across the north of Scotland. Also involved in the festival is our close neighbour, Rhue Art (rhueart.co.uk), where you can see a selection of photographic work by Linda Lashford. Further details on the festival programme can be found at flowphotofest.co.uk

The Room is an important part of An Talla Solais's fundraising as a charity, and features work by contemporary artists from across Scotland.

Further information on the artworks on show will be available here shortly.

Information and contact details for the artists in the current show and all of the artists who have shown work in The Room in recent years, can be found in our 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.
