UHI Outer Hebrides art students celebrate success with fine art show.

UHI Outer Hebrides are proud to present the final major exhibition from our two honours year graduates, Sif Nielsen and Kathrhona Lawson.

Degree Show dates:  28th May – 11th June 2022
Venue: Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre
Graduating Students: Kathrhona Lawson and Sif Nielsen

“Artistic creativity thrives on relationships – between ourselves and each other, our environment, the worlds that we are born into and that we build.” Explains Norman Shaw Programme Lead at UHI.

This can clearly be seen in the work of graduating artists Kathrhona Lawson and Sif Nielsen. Both have been studying BA Fine Art in at the UHI Outer Hebrides campus in North Uist.

Sif commented, “My practice roots itself in my relocation to North Uist. The whoosh in the treetops now brought by the sea, rumbling and humbling with the weather running wild across open moors has brought an unforeseen sense of belonging through exposure.”

Rosie Blake, Fine Art Lecturer said: “The influence of the Outer Hebrides on our student’s unique learning experience is clear in the work on display here. We are incredibly proud of what Sif and Kathrhona have achieved and the dedication they have shown to their work.”

The Degree Show exhibition will be opened to the public at Taigh Chearsabhagh’s Gallery 2 space from Saturday 28th of May. The students work can also be viewed as part of the UHI Degree Show catalogue exhibition with graduating art students from Orkney, Shetland and Moray – BA (Hons) Fine Art & Fine Art Textiles Degree Show 2022
