Uist and Barra Artists Studio Trail, and Exhibitions 2022

FINAL Deadline: Friday 1st April 2022 for inclusion in printed brochure.


Events can continue to be added to the online information on the website, but they will not be in the printed brochure.

This year we are offering a simplified Art on the Map

A simplified flyer that identifies artists and studios open with two categories:

    1. Venues with standard opening hours all summer
    2. Venues that are open by appointment, and where specific opening hrs can be updated to the website nearer the time.

We are aiming to have the brochures printed and ready for distribution by the end of May Bank  holiday, along with some other trail maps being prepared by Taigh Chearsabhagh for some of their activities.

Our Open Summer exhibition will be held in Taigh Chearsabhagh from 2nd July – 6th August and as last year we have agreed with TC to have a paid gallery assistant who will also act as a point of contact for visitors to signpost and help encourage studio visits, and generally be on hand to provide information about our members and their work.

The information in your form will also be used to set up a basic Art on the Map website profile for you and/or your event. You will be sent login details to edit the information directly.

Please email your completed forms, image and any questions to uistarts@gmail.com

Art on the Map Road Signs
Art on the Map signs will be provided for display outside your venue. Signs are 31×62 cm and double sided. Please note that there will not be a charge for the signs, provided they are returned without damage just after the 2022 trail. Each sign is worth £20. Please Indicate if you would like a sign and how many you require.

Please indicate if you already have signs squirelled away in your shed or attic. We will start with an allowance of 2 signs per venue, but may be able to stretch to more once we have an indication of how many we need and have.

Public Liability Insurance
As a condition of being part of Art on the Map all venues, open studios, halls, public buildings must have public liability insurance (PLI) cover, and as responsible organisers we need to be sure that people have this in place for their event.
As part of submitting this application you are confirming that you will take out insurance as necessary to cover your event for the duration of your openings for Art on the Map 2022, and if you are in a public building will check with the building that you are exhibiting in that you are covered under their Public Liability Insurance, or take out your own. You will also need to undertake a formal risk assessment.
