Free entry exhibition of paintings at the Crinan Hotel by Lochgilphead, Argyll

Dates: Friday, 01 August to Sunday, 31 August 2008
Venue: The Sealock Gallery at the Crinan Hotel

The third exhibition of paintings at the luxurious Crinan Hotel, by Lochgilphead, has become one of the highlights of the RGI’s calendar of events – as popular with local residents as with artists and art lovers alike. The event is hosted by RGI Council member Frances Macdonald. Together with husband Nick Ryan, Frances runs the hotel when not creating beautiful works inspired by stunning views of Iona, Tiree and Mull, or exhibiting in London, Edinburgh or Glasgow.

The exhibition features a mix of affordable work from locally-based artists through to paintings from some of the 50 RGIs – ‘custodians’ of the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, selected for their outstanding work and contribution to contemporary Scottish painting. Argyll has a large community of professional artists. Gillian Goodheir, Jennifer Irvine and Frances Macdonald are among those who sold at last year’s event which included work by the renowned Scots painter JoLoMo – John Lowrie Morrison. Young artists will also be represented, including Frances’ son Ross Ryan who is carving out a solid reputation as an exciting young talent for his maritime-inspired prints and paintings.
