Artist Nicholas De Maid joins us again this year.
Nicholas creates greetings cards and Limited Edition prints in watercolour and pencil, primarily of botanical and architectural scenes from both on and off the island.

His style is not so much as to re-create realism but rather an interpretation of reality, stressing detail and lines found in plants.

Tim Pomeroy
Tim’s recent sculptures have been inspired by archaeological finds, by designed everyday objects and by natural/organic forms. A seed head can as much inspire monumentality in stone or bronze as a screw-head.
While many of Tim’s sculptures, etchings and drawings are in the gallery representing him in London, the Fine Art Society, there are still many versions to be seen at the picturesque studio location above Lamlash. This year Tim has created woodland walks and has placed sculptures in the landscape of his smallholding.
Tim trained as a painter and taught painting at Grays School of Art, Aberdeen. And while he is better now known for his sculptures, there will still be many two-dimensional works on display. His public commissions feature in Chatsworth Ho., Cawdor Castle gardens, Provand’s Lordship Glasgow, St Andrews RC Cathedral Glasgow, The Beatson Institute, The Esme Fairbairn Foundation to mention but a few.

Inspired by Arran's coastline Katy Penn creates powerful oil paintings on wood and canvas.
Her studio is situated at Pirnmill, where she is clearly inspired by the dramatic changes in light and colour.
