Cunningham commits to tackling "serious issues" of biodiversity loss and climate change

Scottish Cabinet Secretary, Roseanna Cunningham, visited us this week at Scotland’s first MPA visitor centre, the Octopus Centre. COAST was pleased to see her interact with the new exhibitions and display her knowledge! But we were even more pleased to hear her commit to taking action on biodiversity and climate change.

"Life is about timing" said Carl Lewis. Politics is too. Through the Priority Marine Features review, Cunningham has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to right the wrong done to Scottish coastal communities, their ecosystem and fisheries.

If our government really wants to protect our extraordinary sea life, safeguard Scotland’s blue carbon stocks, recover the diverse and healthy fisheries we used to have and promote low impact sustainable fishing, here is how to do it.

Something of the Sea - Call for artists from Arran Open Studio

pavilionThis year we are working on a joint project with COAST (Community of Arran Seabed Trust).

We would like to invite you to donate a piece of work in any medium to a public exhibition to be held in the COAST office, the old Pavilion Lamlash, in the week before the Open Studios event and throughout the weekend.

The theme is 'Something of the Sea'.

The idea is that the work will not be signed and all work will be available to the public for a minimum donation of £25. A larger sum can be donated if the donor wishes. All funds raised will be donated to COAST.

 COAST will provide a simple card mount for each piece. Heather McLeod of Arran Studio Shop has kindly offered her services in cutting the mounts. There is no need for you to mount or frame the work.

 Specifications

2D work, A4 (296mmx420mm) or A5 (148mm x 210mm)

3D work, small, of a comparable size to A5/A4

 2D work should be on a surface suitable for mounting and hanging, e.g. watercolour paper, cartridge paper of a good weight, card or thin board.

 The exhibition provides the opportunity to purchase a piece of art at a very affordable price whilst supporting a much loved local community organisation.

You will be invited to a cheese and wine evening to open the event Monday 6th August.
 
  • Confirmation of participation by Monday 30th April (by return email)
  • Delivery of work to the COAST office - Mon 11th June - Fri 22nd June, Mon - Fri  9am-4pm
  • Exhibition opens 6th August, closes 13th August

 Please reply to confirm your participation no later than 30th April as we need time to organise this event before the busy summer holidays begin.
