Art on the Map Trail

June – July – August 2022: open studios, arts businesses and other events

the trail

This year, our Art on the Map trail runs from June 1 to August 31 2022. It’s a free trail of 30 artists’ studios, arts businesses and other art-related events.

Browse our artist profiles to identify artists that interest you, then use the interactive Google map in each profile to find their location. Check when they are open (some are only open between certain dates, some require an appointment before your visit).

A leaflet giving an overview of the trail is also available locally or can be downloaded here

Or call into our Summer Exhibition at Taigh Chearsabhagh in Lochmaddy to see a few examples of each artist’s work and talk to us: the exhibition is open from July 2 to August 6

the venues

The venues are a mixture of artists’ personal studio spaces, galleries selling work from a range of artists and pop-up events in local halls. The trail will show you parts of the island and local life that might be otherwise inaccessible.

Remember that some of our venues are residential and may not have parking areas for large vehicles: you may need to park nearby and walk to the venue. Contact the artist if you need any advice,

You’ll see our Art on the Map Exhibition signs outside each venue.
