The Skye Exhibition
From exhibiting in London in 1990 to a chance meeting with the sculptor Laurence Broderick to showing my work at this remote gallery in this most beautiful location in Skye has changed my life. I was invited by the late Sir Ian Noble and his wife Lady Lucy Noble to exhibit at An Talla Dearg. It did not command a huge passing trade in the early days but the few visitors who stumbled upon it were captivated by their find of a vibrant City exhibition “in the middle of nowhere”. Nowadays it is easier to find with the help of signs and advertising! Visitors often returning to the Island make a purposeful trip to see the exhibition, some come in by boat as the gallery overlooks a small harbour and pier: even Royal visitors have found their way to the gallery!
This annual exhibition is at the centre of my year. I do have several solo shows a year throughout Scotland and England but it is this show that kick starts my inspiration, my body of work, my source and ideas for the rest of the year. As I man this show myself I like to have on display work that I want to see. I furnish it with a huge choice of small paintings which I normally am not able to do for other shows. I also have on display my prints, cards, calendars and mugs.
I set up my studio in the gallery and am usually painting in the gallery most of the time and will be happy to discuss my landscapes with you. Do pop in for a visit. There will be the Pam Carter ancillaries available - cards, calendars, brochures, Dunoon Mugs and high quality Lithos and Giclees prints. Ruth Swan's beautiful jewellery will also be on display.
