There is some excellent work in this year’s colourful Grinneas exhibition at An Lanntair, Stornoway, running until the end of May. Grinneas has been a fixture in An Lanntair’s programme since 1987 and showcases the work of artists resident in or from the Western Isles.
Now in stock are large 2.5mm mount boards / overlays. These smooth finish pale ivory boards are almost twice as thick as standard mount board and are perfect for giving a distinctive finish to most types of artwork. They look excellent used with a wide bare wood frame moulding.
Some mounted prints have been added to stock at The Woodlands Centre, Stornoway, including large collages of flowers and scenes from Lewis and Harris.
Suggestions for photos to add to stock are always welcome!
