The Iona Gallery is set close to the centre of Kingussie, a delightful town in the heart of the Scottish Highlands with lovely cafes and beautiful scenery, within the Cairngorms National Park. Our gallery, the only public art gallery in the National Park, is run by the SBSA (Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists) a community group whose aims are to promote art and access to art for residents and visitors alike. We are a registered charity run by volunteer trustees and committee members. The High Life Highland Exhibitions Unit will be providing two exhibitions in 2019, together with private exhibitors and three members’ exhibitions – Photography, a Textile Exhibition and the very popular SBSA Summer Arts Festival.
This winter the gallery will be closed through January and February whilst major improvement works are undertaken to insulate the walls, provide new internal walls, additional equipment storage, glass doors to the small gallery and a transformation of the small gallery to improve hanging space.
