BÙTH / KIOSK was created and curated by Philippa C Thomas and Hector MacInnes, with Roddy Murray.

(Conceivably) from the late ‘60s to the early ‘90s, Nicolson’s Kiosk stood on the plot of land now occupied by An Lanntair.  Entirely reliant on local suppliers and makers, its range of items was a testament to Hebridean ingenuity and idiosyncrasy.

All that I do by Tom Hickman was a homage and testament to an extraordinary artist and collector. The core of this exhibition was a series of gorgeous, narrative stump-work embroideries of biblical scenes, from the Garden of Eden to Noah’s Ark to the Nativity. Also displayed were a wide range of rare, unusual and esoteric works from Tom’s collection including furniture pieces, naïve folk art and complex and beautiful assemblages created from shells from South West Australia to North West Scotland.
