An Lanntair is offering a commission to one artist to decorate – in the round – the art centre’s Round Room area as we look towards reopening when government COVID-19 restrictions allow.

The Round Room area of An Lanntair’s current café/bar space, which has a large opening entrance facing the auditorium doors, is an informal space used by so many different people throughout the day and night.

An Lanntair seeks to commission an artist to ‘Paint It Over’ and radically transform this space using acrylic paint directly on the walls, surfaces, ceiling and floor. We are looking for clear ideas which will consider the use of the space, and a design which will envelop the room.

We welcome submissions from artists and ask for three examples of your work in jpeg format; along with up to five examples of the technique, style or concept for the manner in which you would paint the Round Room.

We ask that submissions provide an illustration of how the Round Room space would look when completed, and include an estimate of materials, costings, and hours of work required to complete the commission.

An Lanntair will cover the cost of all materials and pay a fee to the selected artist. We will also promote the successful commissioned works through our website and social media.

All submissions should be sent to:
Please also contact Sandra for any further information.
Deadline for submissions: 5pm, 26th June 2020.
We will aim to inform successful applicants by the end of July 2020.

An Lanntair is a hub for creativity, located in the heart of Stornoway. The venue houses an auditorium where weekly cinema and performing arts are programmed, a gallery with a continually changing programme of internationally significant exhibitions, an art room, project and community spaces, café bar and shop.
