Pleased to announce that Hulabhaig is looking for artists and artworks to plan future contemporary art shows at Baile na Cille church, Timsgarry, Uig, Isle of Lewis.
The venue is inspiring, its interior is adaptable, unspoilt by 'white cubism' (so far), its location is remote, its vista is stunning.
Footfall is limited to locals, occasional tourists, a growing community of artists, several redwings and a resident shrew.
Its long term future is uncertain, currently dependant on ambitious restoration funding applications, potential private investors and 'Committee Management'. (this may take a while...)
But for now.., it's a contemporary arts space. And Hulabhaig wants to show contemporary art.
Please get in touch, I'm the curator at Hulabhaig (firstname.lastname@example.org), if you have an idea or body of work that would benefit from being exhibited at Baile na Cille church. Or maybe you need space to develop an idea. I would love to hear from you. I'm open to all ideas but can guarantee nothing, that's the fun of curating, lets's see if we can make something happen.
Hulabhaig is a new curatorial project exploring what an island based art gallery is, can be or could be in the future, connecting with artists and reaching out to an ever increasing global audience via the power of social media, e-marketing and the world wide web.
Dedicated to promoting and showcasing work from artists living and working in the Outer Hebrides.
We are now helping to develop and curate a new gallery space at Baile na Cille Church in Timsgarry, Uig, Isle of Lewis and will be curating and displaying a variety of sculpture and contemporary art.
Our purpose is to inspire island based artists to produce new and experimental work and to provide a platform to showcase work and ideas. By establishing an online presence and social media following we will be expanding our audience globally.
We also hope to provide a new visual arts experience for the islands, encouraging locals, artists and tourists to visit Uig and enjoy it's beautiful surroundings, a place where people can experience wide open spaces and thought provoking art for free.
