Opening – Friday 27 August, 5pm
Exhibition run: 27 Aug – 3 Sept

A first of its kind in the Isle of Lewis, An Lanntair welcomes Mìr air Mhìr (Bit by Bit) – a collaborative show featuring the works of eleven art school graduates from the Western Isles – and celebrates the islands’ new talents with our first Exhibition Opening in over a year!

Due to the global pandemic, Degree Shows in universities across Scotland during 2020 and 2021 were cancelled, leaving students unable to physically present their years of work to the world. In response, these island students have returned home to showcase and celebrate their final year’s work in An Lanntair’s main gallery, presenting their very own Degree Show.

We are delighted that we can again invite visitors to join us for this Exhibition Opening, but because we want everyone to leave as healthy as they arrived, we are limiting Main Gallery numbers to 50 and therefore ask that if you are planning to attend the Mir air Mhir opening, please book a FREE ticket for one of three timeslots: 5-6pm / 6-7pm / 7-8pm.

We would also like to remind visitors that face coverings (unless exempt) must be worn when walking around An Lanntair, hand sanitiser stations are available for regular use throughout the building, Test & Protect contact details must be given on entry, and please ensure to respect your own, and others’, personal space.
