Art at the Mill

Artmap Argyll – Art at the Mill

Taynish Collage1

This summer, Taynish NNR will host a free, outdoor, art trail along the all ability Mill path, all the way down to the shore.   Nine Artmap Argyll artists have made artworks especially for this event that is open from Tuesday 26 May. SNH Art at the Mill is No 34 on the Red Dot Studio trail during the annual Open Studios weekend 28th to 31st August 2015


This is a special opportunity to experience the extraordinary natural habitats, sea shore and landscape at NNR Taynish and see how 10 artists have interpreted stone, ceramic, glass, concrete, willow, textiles, mirror and print to sit in their chosen settings. You can have a Close Encounter with Jane Walker’s stag, see Sian MacQueen’s concrete prayer flags melt into birch trees; Louise Oppenheimer’s Passing Flow wool weavings are cleverly installed into the Mill building itself beside reproduction print images of Jane Smith’s Frogs & Toads. There is plenty to discover around water with Lucinda Hopkinson’s ephemeral Frozen in Time and Dragonfly; Lesley Burr’s series of 3 colourful mosaic Rainbow fish are heading upstream; Kirsty Brady’s stained glass birds suspended over the pond and then Margaret Ker’s spider web sparkles in the ancient oak and Mill Stone bench with a fantastic view and William Blake poem to ponder; Melanie Chmielewska’s dreamy Dog Angel is a quiet companion as you look out over Lock Sween and finally the well known sculptor Rob Mulholland shows two mirror male and female figures that reflect back changing aspects of the landscape.
