Visitors can once again ‘stroll’ through An Lanntair’s main gallery as the islands’ arts centre presents a series of Virtual Galleries online.

The cyberspace galleries take a look back at exhibitions presented when An Lanntair resided in Stornoway Town Hall, as well as a selection of current works created by young people in lockdown as part of the Sketchbook Project.

An Lanntair says it  is delighted to present online Tom McKendrick’s ‘Submarine’ exhibition, which opened in September 1991. The Steve Dilworth virtual gallery features works from his 1992 ‘Acts of Faith’ show; and there is also a look back to the Mary Morrison and Sandra Kennedy exhibition of that year.

The virtual galleries allow another view of the ‘Visions in the Wind: Japanese Kites’ exhibition, first presented in An Lanntair in January 1993; as well as taking a second look at the photographic art of Mark Johnston, originally exhibited in 1996.

Online visitors can pan around each gallery simply using the mouse or controller arrows on screen, can view on full screen, and can zoom in and out of the individual works, as well as click on information icons to find out more about each work.
