Not sure where you're going? Feeling aimless and without direction? Need a steer? 'Cracked Rudder' by Robert Callender stands boldly near the entrance of our 'As Coastline it to Ocean' exhibition. For those of us who live by the sea, as Robert did, its size and worn steadfast appearance is familiar and somehow reassuring. 
Come and see how it makes you feel. It's on show alongside work by @calleja_joseph and @davidcass.art and the accompanying exhibition 'Coast'. We're open every day until 8th September from 10am to 5pm (with a 30 minute closure at 1.30pm) and entry is always free.

Nothing beats coming to experience our current exhibitions ' As Coastline is to Ocean' and 'Coast' in person. 
But you can still participate from a distance by contributing to a new project by @davidcass.art. David is gathering information for Where Once the Waters. He will produce an artwork that charts changes in sea levels nearest people's birthplaces during the course of their lifetimes. It's a fascinating way to personalise a huge subject so please feel free to spread the word. 
If you'd like to take part you just need to send your name, birth year and birthplace to David by entering your details at the link@in the bio or you can DM him @davidcass.art.

A century after the Scottish Enlightenment, Patrick Geddes made clear the complex and inter-related relationships between humans and their environment. His thinking is particularly relevant today in discussion about sustainable societies. Geddes – a scientist, botanist and urban planner – understood even then that industrial development, if left unchecked, would damage the air, water and land upon which all life relies. In his words, ‘care of Mother Earth’ is the prime task of man... Geddes’ philosophy is also skillfully reflected – without moralising – in the works of Callender and Cass, while Calleja’s art is given form by his acute perception of both our inner and outer world … And in this wasteful world, it is a great achievement by these three artists, that they all use recycled materials to create their art. An art with special illuminating powers. I am full of admiration for what they have achieved and with such modest means. - Artist Elizabeth Ogilvie speaking at the preview of 'As Coastline is to Ocean' @davidcass.art @calleja_joseph @laterallabart

Today is Earth Overshoot Day. 
It marks the date when humanity’s demand for ecological resources - such as fish and forests - and services in a given year exceeds what Earth can regenerate in that year. We keep growing this deficit by liquidating the Earth’s natural capital and accumulating waste, primarily carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Over the past 20 years Earth Overshoot Day has moved up two months to July 29th, the earliest date ever. There's an international campaign to share solutions in an attempt to #MoveTheDate and try to restore our balance with nature. 
You can find out a little more about the graphic by following this link: https://bit.ly/2LQqtQw 'Plastic Beach' by Robert Callender is on show in our Gallery until 8th September as part of 'As Coastline is to Ocean' with @calleja_joseph and @davidcass.art. 
Robert was one of the first artists to capture the scale of the environmental disaster caused by marine plastic pollution.

We're absolutely delighted to be hosting 'Coast' alongside our main exhibition. 'Coast' features a rotating selection of artwork from 20 artists who responded to our Open Call earlier this year for work exploring coastal change. It's a subject which covers flooding, erosion, beach waste and acidification of the sea among other topics. 
@davidcass.art and @calleja_joseph selected the final pieces and it's a really beautifully curated micro-exhibition offering unique insights into the different artists, their practice and approaches. Some of the work you can see here is by @martynmckenzie @katiejparkin @vrosssmith @stucairnsmaker @juliabartonartist @lily.has @isakanshelm @becky___campbell @wayfaringgeordie

Our new exhibition 'As Coastline is to Ocean' opened at the weekend. Work by @calleja_joseph, the late Robert Callender and @davidcass.art is on show every day until 08/09. And alongside it, a really special micro-exhibition called 'Coast' featuring a range of artists exploring ideas around coastal change.

Here’s Joseph and David joined by artist Elizabeth Ogilvie, Robert’s wife, at the preview where Liz said a few words which drew the exhibition together with rich warmth and insight. 
Alongside David and Joseph we’ll be sharing images of what the Gallery holds during the exhibition/s but nothing beats visiting and breathing it all in.

Final day of 'Stillness and Flow'. The works by @aquarelman and @susanmacintosh.art have been so much appreciated by visitors. Leaving our beautiful Highlands landscape to step inside the gallery and feeling that resonance in the work on show has really struck a chord.

In the spirit of not saying goodbye too sadly here's 'New Promise' by Susan Macintosh in all its vibrant energy.

Skjoma is on show in the Gallery daily until Sunday at 5pm and if you don’t have wall space for the paintings, you can buy Peter’s 'Stillness and Flow' book for £13.

Among the work currently on show in The Room is 'White Hills' by Kirstie Cohen. While it evokes winter, we've been especially caught by this extraordinary work lately because there's no snow on top of the hills here this summer as there usually is and the sky hasn't hit the amazing blue tones that it's capable of in our northern latitude and which Kirstie captures so beautifully. 
It's been a treat to see and savour this large painting. 'White Hills' is on show daily until Sunday 14th of July. 40cm x 65cm. £1980. For further details please contact Beth on theroom@antallasolais.org or 07530 817 116.

It’s been an absolute pleasure to share our studio space with Marta Adamowicz over the past week. 
We offered Marta our annual residency award after seeing her work in the @royal_scottish_academy #RSAOpen exhibition last year.

It’s always a joy to welcome artists who are open to the experience of immersing themselves in a different community as well as the stunning landscapes surrounding us.  Marta has been working on a series of Ullapool prints which have playfully and poignantly captured some of the realities of living here that many of you might recognise. Here are some of her artist proofs.

Writer and musician Jon Miller has kindly sent Peter Davies and Susan Macintosh this beautiful response to their work in our Gallery. 
Stillness and Flow

The clean edge vanishes in the blurred line
of that high pool hung in the mind.

A buried stream lost; a creeping tide
seeping into pores;
a waterlogged thought that takes days to dry.

Here the walls are hung with weather,
islands and skerries dissolve on end,

suspended in a stilled thaw as a blown storm
hovers over unweighted waters

and a smirr of hillside melts
into a mist unthinking itself into white space. ‘Stillness and Flow’ is open for daily reflection until 14th July. From 10am to 5pm with a 30 minute closure at 1.30pm with @aquarelman and @susanmacintosh.art

If we were sat alongside you we’d be tugging your sleeve to come and see our new exhibition which opens tomorrow. ‘Stillness and Flow’ is filled with extraordinary contemporary watercolours evoking the power of northern landscapes. 
Shetland’s @aquarelman and @susanmacintosh.art - 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. 
Opens tomorrow and daily from 10am to 5pm until 14th July. We’ll be sharing images from tomorrow but it doesn’t beat the real thing.

The deadline is looming for #submissions for #Coast, a small exhibition on coastal change we're holding this summer. 
Coast will run alongside 'As Coastline is to Ocean’, an exhibition of work by @calleja_joseph Robert Callender (@laterallabart ) and @davidcass.art 
The aim of Coast is to promote discussion of a globally significant theme so artists are being invited to reference at least one feature of coastal change in their submission. It could be flooding, erosion, coastal structure, beach waste, acidification of the sea. And we're looking for wall-based work but you should feel free to consider any aspect through painting, drawing, assemblage, print, photography.

Artists around the world are turning to the environment and creating timely, thought-provoking responses to climate change. Just answer the call. 
Deadline for submissions is midnight this Sunday 19th of May. All details can be found by following this link: www.bit.ly/coastopen

We're in our 15th year at An Talla Solais and feeling both grown-up and fresh-faced. We think our new logo reflects that mood and hope that you'll get used to recognising us by it.

A beautiful day here on Loch Broom. Perfect start to launch an open call. In collaboration with artists @davidcass.art @calleja_joseph and the estate of Robert Callender, we're delighted to announce a call for submissions for a micro-exhibition: Coast.

We're looking for wall-based artworks from a range of practitioners responding to the topic of coastal change. You might focus on flooding, erosion, beach waste, coastal construction or acidification of the sea. Feel free to consider any aspect through painting, print, assemblage, drawing and photography... Selected entrants will be exhibited in a dedicated room within our Gallery at the same time as our summer exhibition 'As Coastline is to Ocean', by Calleja and Cass. Their work is a response to coastal themed works by the late Robert Callender.

Artists around the world are turning to the environment: creating timely, thought provoking pieces in response to climate change. Art has the power to offer direct, visual entry points to the public on this global issue and we'd like you to take part. 
Please tag any artists you think might be interested and click the link in our bio for more details and information on how to make a submission.

Such a treat to have a new visual arts magazine arrive in Scotland. @artnorth.mag has opened a window in the world beyond the central belt. Also smells and holds with proper art magazine finish. Sometimes being on the edge of something can mean being at its leading edge. Well done and here’s to a thriving northern latitude community. #art #scottishart #northernlatitude #northernlights #scandinavia #north #newfoundland #shetland #orkney #faroeislands

The sun shone as brightly as the artists in the gallery today. The doors opened on the very first exhibition of the Dolphin Arts Project, our arts dementia group.  Now open from 10am to 4pm daily until Sunday. 
On Friday Anne-Marie will be there on the hour, every hour throughout the day offering free '15 Minute' dementia awareness sessions so you can learn a little bit about what it's like to live with dementia and the small ways you can help if you meet someone. 
She'll be offering this training over the next couple of months throughout Ullapool to any shop, business, organisation or community group that would like to help Ullapool become a dementia friendly village. So if you can't make it tomorrow then don't worry. Just leave your name and contact details in the gallery or email her on dolphin@antallasolais.org and she'll be in touch.

Our final artist new to us in The Room is @adeadesina and we must have been especially good this year to have deserved showing his extraordinary, meticulously detailed prints in our Christmas exhibition. 
Born in Nigeria, he is currently based in Aberdeen, Scotland. A Royal Scottish Academician and member of the Royal Glasgow Institute of The Fine Art, Ade is also a previous Artist in Residence at both Eton College and Glasgow Print Studio. My work is a visual commentary around the ideas of ecology and our ever-changing world. I am fascinated by how the human footprint is affecting our planet. Our world is full of wonderful landscapes and I wish to highlight the continual damage caused through things such as deforestation, the politics of energy consumption, and endangered wild species,” says Ade.

Another wonderful first for us. We're very pleased to be showing work by Keith Salmon. An avid hillwalker - he has climbed more than a hundred of the Munros - Keith studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art. His work won the Jolomo Award for Scottish Landscape Painting in 2009 and since then he has exhibited widely through the UK and internationally. The work is based almost entirely on the walks I do over the wild Scottish mountains, through the glens and along the coastline.  I walk these places throughout the year and experience them under all sorts of conditions.  The constant changes in atmosphere, light and colour are for me what make the Scottish landscape so special. Produced in acrylic and pastel, or oil on canvas, the works try to capture a little of what it is like to get away from the roads and into these beautiful, quiet and sometimes isolated locations, says Keith.

Something about the wide open skies on these beautiful paintings by @cateinglis are brightening our Gallery days here. 
Cate says: I search for overgrown, derelict subjects - places where disappearing buildings leave gap sites and wasteland....Bleak, industrial sites that have fallen out of use.  Structures left to deteriorate, overrun by plant life, I paint the accumulative layers of habitation, use and disuse. A @glasgowschoolart graduate, Cate has exhibited widely throughout the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland and has won numerous prestigious awards, showing her work at the @royal_scottish_academy In 2016 she was awarded Professional Member of the @societyscottishartists and continues to exhibit with respected galleries throughout the UK & Ireland. 
Come and join our appreciation society. The Gallery is open 11am to 4pm daily until Sunday 23rd of December.  If you can’t make it north but are interested to know more then feel free to message us.

A painting by Evelyn Peffers on show in our current exhibition. Evelyn was born in Hawick in 1939, was schooled in Edinburgh and attended @edinburghcollegeofart where she met architect Rip Fleming. 
In the early 1990’s, Evelyn and Rip moved to Ullapool and lived on Isle Martin for several years before moving closer to the village. With their children having flown the nest, Rip and Evelyn were now able to devote more time to their respective arts; capturing the local scenery in watercolour and oil paintings, working on commissions for heads and other sculptures. Rip and Evelyn were often spotted far beyond Ullapool working from their converted camper van and mobile studio. 
Over the years they travelled extensively across Europe, North Africa and Asia; in their own way and on their own terms, carrying their sketch books everywhere they went and documenting their travels with pencil and paint as much as with camera. 
Come and learn more about Evelyn and Rip at our Gallery. Open daily from 11am to 4pm with a 30 minute closure at 1.30pm. Exhibition closes on 23rd December so don’t miss it.
