Muir is Tìr – Sailing Residency Exhibition – ‘Land and Sea’
1 Sept – 6 Oct

The exhibition showcases the Muir is Tìr /Land and Sea residency from 2017 and 2018 undertaken in association with Sail Britain, as well as the work of two artists from the An Suileachan residency based on the Bhaltos peninsula, initiated and supported by Will Maclean and Marian Leven.

Muir is Tìr is a new format of residency that offers a week at sea, learning to sail with our partner organisation Sail Britain and a week on land exploring the different environments of the island as well as the language and culture of the place.

The resulting exhibition is a response to these residency experiences and features among other elements swim suits, aerial film and embroidery.

The participating artists are: Mollie Goldstrom, William Arnold, Amy Leigh Bird, Kirsty Dixon, and Helen Snell with Claire Macleod and Joanne Kaar from the Suileachan Residency.

Join us for the opening of Muir is Tìr on Friday 31st of August at 5pm.
