Ullapool’s visual arts centre, An Talla Solais, is currently staging Christmas exhibitions entitled Retrospect and Shotgun.

Retrospect features the work of Simon Mackenzie, Meira Stockl and Alex Ross, three distinct and prolific artists from different backgrounds who have spent part, if not all, of their lives in Ullapool.

This exhibition is the first time their paintings, sculptures and other work can be seen together. Shotgun features brand-new work from renowned ceramic artist Allison Weightman, who has exhibited throughout Scotland and has been interested in exploring the destructive force of gunfire both physically and emotionally since being shot in the leg as a child.

Her clay vessels are shot with a 12 bore shotgun before the work is “fired” carrying a hallmark of power that runs through everything she produces as an artist.

The exhibition is open daily from 10am until 5pm until Friday, December 23. The gallery is within The Caledonian Hotel (West Argyle Street entrance), Ullapool. Contact: for more details.
