Too much information about life is in the Slate Islands? A unique culture indeed.
BBC Masterchef Gerry Goldwyre is to be hung in Easdale Island.
But in the most artistic way.
His work – conjuring views from the sea between a two dimensional chart and a three dimensional painting – are to be shown in a new gallery – they believe it to be the smallest operating gallery in the world – in a converted bothy on Easdale Island, 17 miles south of Oban.
The island is only accessible by boat on a two minute journey (even shorter than the crossing from Colintraive to Rhubodach on the Isle of Bute,) - mostly on demand from the pier on the mainland.
The new gallery will open this Saturday, on the 14th July 2012 and feature contemporary artists including Sue Biazotti, Kenneth Burns, Liz Chapman, Adam Kennedy, Paul Kennedy and Alex Mac Rae.
The idyllic island has no roads and is a painters paradise.
This was Gerry Goldwyre’s experience when he visited Easdale last week and spent some time creating sketches that will feature in forthcoming exhibitions.
And the gothic headline above was not ours but came from the imagination of the gallery owner, Jan Fraser.
