About us

Welcome to Artmap Argyll

Artmap Argyll is a network and membership organisation open to professional and aspiring artists alike. We help artists network with each other and to share their work and experience with a wider audience.

Our vision is to ensure that Argyll is recognised as a vibrant, creative hub. We deliver a range of events, public art installations and workshops that offer artists opportunities to collaborate on art projects, share ideas and exchange information. Our annual Red Dot Studio Trail is Argyll’s premier visual arts event.

As a social enterprise company, all our funds are used for activities that benefit Argyll’s artists and communities. We are looking for new artists to join us so we can help them share their work through studio visits and sales.

Our Vision is for Artmap Argyll to be nationally recognised as a vibrant network of Argyll Artists that celebrate and promote the art created in Argyll, sharing skills and collaborating to make art accessible to all.
