An Lanntair’s Artist Gatherings are monthly social events for island artists of all disciplines, from music, film and theatre to visual art and design. You do not need to be established or professional to come along – everyone is welcome and we are here to support all forms of creativity.

Each month we invite two special guests to talk about their work. In February we’re delighted to welcome two visiting artists:

Barbara Schober is a German visual artist whose work has been exhibited internationally, including Australia, the USA, South Africa and across Europe. Barbara was inspired to visit Lewis by An Lanntair’s Hebridean Dark Skies Festival, as she prepares for an artist residency in Spitsbergen (Svalbard) in October and continues to develop a piece of work called Moonshots.

Ian Waugh is a writer, director, and artist who grew up in the north of England and works primarily with film and photography, exploring “existential narratives and the physical and psychological experience of place, where internal journeys are reflected within isolated and fragile landscapes”. Ian is visiting Lewis for an Island Darkroom residency.

The image above is a detail from Ian Waugh’s photographic series The Cleared Country.

This event is part of An Lanntair’s Artist Support Programme, supported by the Foyle Foundation.

If you’d like to share your work at a future Artist Gathering, contact Andrew Eaton-Lewis at All contributors will be paid a fee.

Our next Artist Gathering will be on Friday 22 March.
