Art Group Launch at the Glenmoriston

On 23rd February a new and exciting visual art development will be launched at the Glenmoriston Townhouse. 

Black Isle Abstract, a group of three abstract artists all based on the Black Isle, aims to raise the profile of abstract art in the Scottish Highlands.

The artists are: Beti Britcelj from Slovenia who has developed an international reputation for her carefully crafted geometric works; Ian Barr, a Glaswegian by birth,
who recently had a very successful exhibition of ‘constructed paintings’ at Inverness Museum & Art Gallery; and Alex Dunn, who hails from Cromarty, and is a founder member of the Cromarty Group.

Black Isle Abstract aims to become part of the network of exhibition spaces and locations where contemporary artists can show their work, and where audiences for that work can be fostered, and is intent on helping develop a community of practitioners, patrons and informed audiences across the Highlands.

After the private launch event on Friday 23rd, members of the public are invited to attend the exhibition from Saturday 24th to Wednesday 28th February fro 10am to 5pm, with free admission.

The Glenmoriston Townhouse was chosen for this event due to our significant connection with Scottish modern art not least because of the important collection of art works by one of Scotland’s most important and influential abstract artists William Johnstone (1897-1981) on permanent show on its walls, and we are delighted to host such a prestigious event and exhibition.
