Erica Robb – Transience
The paintings derive from subjects in Scotland and Spanish mountains, responding to things of nature.  Many have elements of human intervention such as mountainside terraces or cultivated trees, some are of humans themselves.  The freedom of nature to shape itself and human’s work to moderate natural form is reflected in the manner of painting: at times controlled, at others allowing the materials to find their own way in creating the image.

Small Gallery Hire

As usual, there are a number of dates where the small gallery is available for hire. The concessionary rate of just £50 per week (set up Sunday, open Monday to Saturday) will be available for members, though when the small gallery is hired, the hirer(s) must now man, or arrange manning for each day. Members will be expected to also supervise any Highlife Highland exhibition which is on in the main gallery, but not any private main gallery exhibition. 

The small gallery will also be available at times when no exhibitions are in the main gallery.

Non members can also hire the small gallery, but at a weekly rate of £70. To qualify as a member for small gallery hire you MUST have paid your membership by the AGM on March 29th. You can hire as an individual, or as a group, either for arts or for crafts but note that if any one or more members of your group are not SBSA members, the non member rate will apply.

Dates can be reserved by email to badenochandstratharts@gmail.com

If booking more than one week concurrently, the intervening Sunday is available for you to open without additional charge.



This year, we are actively encouraging community and group bookings for the gallery spaces – not just for artistic purposes, but also for meetings, workshops or even small scale performance events. We are pleased to announce the following bookings already made for gallery space and will be happy to discuss any other possibilities.

Generally, the gallery is not open for exhibitions until noon, leaving the mornings potentially available, and evenings will also be available in normal circumstances.

If you have a need for space for a community use, or private event, give David Fallows a call on 01540 673966, or email badenochandstratharts@gmail.com

Please bear in mind that we only have large scale seating or open space available when there are no exhibition bookings, and that the gallery has neither a liquor nor entertainments licence n its own right, so all food and drink must be not for sale and provided to invitees only, whilst if an entertainments licence is required for your event, obtaining one will be your own responsibility and cost. (this latter condition may change in future)
