Mìr air Mhìr at An Lanntair

Installation photography.


Doing some installation photography of the excellent Degree show at An Lanntair, Stornoway, today.


The exhibition runs till Saturday 4th September.


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.

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.

Mìr air Mhìr presents their own Degree Show, providing a space for our local art students, who have studied all across Scotland and specialised in various disciplines, to present their final pieces to the local community.



Grinneas nan Eilean 2019

There is a very wide range of art work on display at An Lanntair’s Grinneas nan Eilean open exhibition in Stornoway. Hundreds of works are on display in the gallery, including sculptures, paintings, prints, photographs, textiles and ceramics.

The exhibition closes on 2nd February, 2020.

Artwork framing – Elaine Murray

A set of two screenprints of St Kilda scenes by Lewis artist Elaine Murray, overlaid with double thickness mountboard and framed in deep rebate limed wood moulding with glass.

I specialise in making frames to customers’ individual requirements: excellent art should have excellent presentation. Wherever possible, frame mouldings used are approved by the Forest Stewardship Council, which certifies woods sourced from responsibly-managed forests.

Please get in touch if you have artwork you want framed to the highest standard, whether it’s for exhibition, for your own walls or for giving as a gift.
