For the very best in contemporary art and craft on the Isle of Arran

Arran Open Studios on Instagram

Our social media artist takeover is coming very soon. AOS artists will have the opportunity to post on our platforms telling you about their work, sharing their images and what inspires them.
Who better to tell the story than the artists themselves. Please support them with a response to their posts, if you feel inclined. @arrantheatreandarts @arts_culture_team_nac #arranopenstudios24 #whatmakesanartisttick #arrantheartsisland

The count down has begun to this year’s Arran Open Studio taking place in August … so we will be getting everyone inspired by highlighting the 50+ participants over the next few months.
So beginning with ‘A’ we have Amanda at Blackwaterbarn Designs. Her handcrafted contemporary, woven and printed, designs are impressionistic in style and inspired by the glorious local landscape, skies, flowers and wildlife.

A little bit of Arran brought to the mainland.
You have until 27th April to visit our exhibition in the Harbour Arts Centre Irvine. The centre is open Wednesday-Saturday.
Have a coffee after viewing our exhibition or some lunch in their great wee cafe.
We also recommend a visit to the Scottish maritime museum , only a few minutes walk from HAC. It’s a great wee area of Irvine to explore.

Thank you to @arranecosavvy for the hire of the van. It’s great when community organisations collaborate for their mutual benefit.
