The Iona Gallery is set close to the centre of Kingussie, a delightful town in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, within the Cairngorm National Park. Our gallery, the only public art gallery in the Cairngorm National park, is run by the SBSA (Society of Badenoch and Strathspey Artists) a group whose aims are to promote art and access to art for residents and visitors alike.
The High Life Highland Exhibitions Unit organise a touring calendar of art exhibitions that continue to visit the gallery monthly from April to November, with a breaks for the popular SBSA Summer Exhibition and other special exhibitions. Our members, both professional and amateur numbering over 100, produce a wide range of art and craftwork which is on regular display for sale in our handmade in the cairngorms studio shop. Items include jewelry, sculpture, textiles, prints, ceramics, drawing and painting. We also have a regular Winter Art Fair, artists workshops and social events. If you would like to join our group, please look on our Members’ page.
