Lewis Elegies

by Mhairi Law and Calum Angus MacKay 

GALLERY | 7 August – 9 October 2021


Lewis Elegies celebrates the photographs of two diverse artists from the Isle of Lewis, the largest island of the Western Isles in Northern Scotland. The works on show reflect the rich contribution that artists and photographers from the far north of Scotland have made to contemporary photography, and this exhibition showcases work by artists whose work is rooted in the remote landscape of their homeland. 

Everything Flows is a specially curated coastal exhibition trail, programmed by Street Level Photoworks in partnership with regional venues and supported by EventScotland as part of the Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21.

FREE admission



by Lois Green

GALLERY | 16 Oct - 13 Nov 2021

Lois Green’s studio practice is focused on creating small-scale tonal paintings and drawings from found imagery, photographs and film stills. They are produced by continuously removing and applying oil or charcoal to a variety of prepared surfaces. Her work depicts intimate spaces, often domestic settings using light and tone to reveal the emotional weight within an image. Lois’s work creates interest in the opacities of tone which results in the uncertainty of the understanding of an image yet probes scenes that appear very familiar. Habitual references a return to certain spaces and places from her past, constructing a series of paintings and drawings which also contemplate the habits and routines of daily life.
