This week the Drill Hall, Lochgilphead has been transformed into a display of vibrant artwork by some of Argyll’s inspired artists and photographers.

The pop-up art gallery marks the 50th year of Mid Argyll Art Society’s annual summer exhibition and like every year there is plenty to catch the eye.

This is the third year Mid Argyll Camera Club has been involved with the running of the exhibition, adding a greater variety to the work on show.

37 artists and five camera club members have contributed their work to the exhibition, offering a wide variety of styles and images that you can purchase.

As well as the artwork for sale there is a display of paintings from previous year’s shows. After an appeal was made for previously displayed works, seven people came forward with paintings to be put on show and the 18 paintings, from 14 different artists have been hung together in the middle of the exhibition.

If you have not managed to catch a glimpse of the artistic array, you have until 4pm on Saturday August 12.
