A stunning new multi sensory art exhibition has now opened at Irvine's Harbour Arts Centre.

Called ‘Gabh anail eile’ – or Draw Another Breath – the work from Inverness-born Eòghann MacColl is now on display in the Main Galleries.

As a visual artist, Eòghann is most interested in how we all uniquely respond to our surroundings, such as our rural and urban landscapes.

Eòghann said: “Making the works for this show has been a bit of revelation for me.

"It has enabled me to return to my studio space and become immersed in my practice in deeper ways and on different scales than I have been able to do for some considerable time, so I am really excited to be sharing my new work with everyone.

“I have loved making this exhibition and thought long about how it pieces together, the issues it raises and where it leads me creatively in the future.

“So, this opportunity, offered to me by the team at the Harbour Arts Centre - a place I have long standing and warm affection for has been timely and rewarding. Thank you to North Ayrshire’s Arts and Culture team for having me.”

Councillor Alan Hill, cabinet member for communities and islands, encouraged visitors from across Ayrshire to visit the exhibition.

He said: “It is a pleasure to be hosting such an influential artist at the HAC this summer, and I would recommend that if you are looking for something a little different to experience over the holidays, drop in to see the exhibition for yourself. You most definitely won’t be disappointed.”

An accomplished and acclaimed visual artist, Eòghann has delivered visual art workshops for several years now, both in Gaelic and English.

As part of the exhibition, Eòghann will be delivering a host of in-person workshops and an Artist Talk.  Stay tuned to social media or email: harbourarts@north-ayrshire.gov.uk for more information on these.

Entry to the exhibition is free of charge and it runs until Saturday, August 26.

The exhibition will be open during the HAC’s standard opening times as follows:

Wednesday – 9.30am to 4.30pm; Thursday – 9.30am to 4.30pm; Friday – 9.30am to 5pm; Saturday – 9am to 4.30pm.
