Hebridean Dark Skies Festival exhibition

28 Jan - 5 Mar 2022

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival presents a group exhibition in which seven artists create new work in response to the festival’s themes of astronomy, darkness, and our night skies.

The exhibition will feature new work by Jon Macleod, Jill Smith, Trish Bell, Judy Spark, Mhairi Law, Jonathan Macdonald, and Moira Maclean.

The image above is taken from Deiseal by Jon Macleod, a previous project for which Jon set up 50 solargraph cameras across the Isle of Lewis from 21 December to 21 June, as “a kind of slow CCTV designed to capture the particular extremes of light and dark in the islands across the year”.

The Hebridean Dark Skies Festival is supported by Caledonian MacBrayne, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Culture and Business Fund Scotland. We would also like to thank our event partners, Calanais Visitor Centre, Stornoway Astronomical Society, Gallan Head Community Trust, and Lews Castle College UHI , as well as Cala Hotels, Outer Hebrides Tourism, and VisitScotland.
