Kintyre creatives collected together at Clachan’s annual art exhibition.

Last weekend’s village hall show, including painting, photography, sculpture and wood turning  attracted collectors from across and outwith the region.

One family visiting from London said that they have bought many items from Clachan in a 20 year period of collecting.

In addition to showing the best of the region’s work for the past year there was a live painting and drawing competition for children on the themes of Scotland, magic or dinosaurs. Their efforts were immediately displayed.

Jan McNair’s Bay of Storms was an early seller. It captured rollers on the shore between Lossit Point and the Gauldrons.

Mrs McNair, who has been painting for 30 years, said that her yearly output is usually between six and eight paintings but this year she only completed one canvas.
