Befriending Lewis & Harris Exhibition

6 Dec 2021 – 28 Jan 2022

Dèanamh Càirdeas ri Leòdhas ‘sna Hearadh
Befriending Lewis & Harris are delighted to showcase a selection of work created by its members through our volunteer inspired Befriending Arts Project that began in October 2018.

Co-curated with the group members, the exhibition includes a collaborative mixed media textile map of Lewis and Harris; a series of mixed media paintings celebrating local people from public archives, known for contributing to their community, as well as a range of works based on different themes and individual interests.

The project has been led by the Creative Co-ordinator at Befriending Lewis & Harris, Elaine Smith, and supported by wonderful volunteers. All members contribute, work together, and support each other in their creativity through mutual learning and creative exchange in a wide range of mediums.

We wish to thank all those who have contributed to making this project possible.
