OPENING EXHIBITION OF 2019
Once again, we are delighted to host a short exhibition featuring the work of Kingussie High school students as our season opener…
During January and February, a major series of works internally has been undertaken to insulate the walls and refurbish the interior with full height smooth wall, including refurbishment of the small gallery. A Glass door has been fitted in the interior entrance to the small gallery, a new storage space was created in the main gallery and various other works undertaken to improve the gallery and its usefulness to the community.
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, Creative Cairngorms, The Great Places Art Competition Exhibition and three members’ exhibitions – Photography, a Textile Exhibition and the very popular SBSA Summer Arts Festival.
BOOKINGS ARE NOW OPEN FOR VACANT MAIN GALLERY DATES AND FOR SMALL GALLERY DATES – SEE THE EXHIBITIONS PAGE FOR DATES AVAILABLE.
