The South Skye Camera Club are having an art exhibition of members photographs from 9th - 27th July, open daily 9am-9pm in The Atrium, Arainn Chaluim Chille, Sabhal Mor Ostaig. 

The South Skye Camera Club was formed in early 2013 to bring together photographers from all over south Skye who want to share and learn more about the art. The club now has over 30 members of all ages and from all walks of life, interested in all aspects of photography – from film to digital, from traditional landscapes to contemporary images, they meet every second Wednesday in Sabhal Mor Ostaig.

Information is being sought on an innovative artist who had a home on the Isle of Raasay.

Tom Newton, creator of several electronic stucco works in the 1980's, had a self built home on the island.

Dr Stephen P. Castell, touched by the unusual designs, is hoping to find more information about the artist.  He told The Skye Times: "I heard about Tom Newton back in the 1980s, in the early days of the microcomputer and related IT developments, when he had some publicity for his ‘electronic stuccos’ sculptures (or 3-D paintings).

"These were constructs which modelled electronic components, such as computer transistors, microprocessors etc to create large-scale works of art, in coloured plaster.

"One of them, for example, ‘Monolithic Transistor’, is it seems in the permanent collection of the Science Museum since around 1984.

"Back in 1988 Humberts was mentioned in the FT as looking to sell Tom Newton’s self-built home on the island of Raasay.

An exhibition exploring our formative years will come to Skye.

The contrasts of adolescence past and present will be examined, as comparatively tame and nostalgic teenage magazines are exhibited next to the never-ending clickbait of internet culture.

The exhibition is brought to Skye by the Travelling Gallery, a contemporary art gallery that brings contemporary art straight to you.

Our teenage dreams will be suspended as the exhibition looks at our prolonged adolescence and why 'teenage' no longer just refers to the period between the ages of 12 and 20.

The exhibition will include work by contemporary artists Arpita Shah, Alice Theobald and Holly White alongside archive material from Museum of Childhood, Edinburgh.

Celebrating its 40th year, the Travelling Gallery is a mobile art space inside a custom-built, bus, which brings high quality contemporary art exhibitions and events to schools and communities throughout Scotland.

The exhibition will come to Café Sia on Saturday 28 April from 10am to 5pm.
