ART GALLERY AND COOP
Aug 2018 • Friends
Located among the local and tourist shops on one of the main streets of this small town. The gallery features local artists with work for sale. The back section is a rotating display gallery. Worth a look if you are visiting Ullapool and walking about. Hope this helps.

Lovely, friendly small gallery
Apr 2018 • Couples
We returned here in the spring and were very pleased to see a fascinating exhibition by Mark Lomax and Mark Lomax, the first being an artist and the second Mark a composer. It is a very interesting multi-media presentation. The gallery is small and welcoming and has a small gift section where one can purchase items made by local crafts people. Entry is free of charge though donations for the upkeep of this important community facility are welcome.

Best gallery in the area
Aug 2017 • Couples
Loved Will Maclean's mixed media collages of the sea. Nice gift shop. The show "Murmur" about climate change by local artists very well done. Although small much better than other galleries in town.

Beth Robertson's exhibition was amazing. Her use of paper and paint to create wonderful images is outstanding. You are guaranteed a good visual experience at An Talla Solais. There is always a range of unique gifts to buy too. Well woth a visit.

Bright spacious gallery

Current exhibition was by local artist Beth Robertson Fiddes. Abstract landscapes, great colours and fantastic ability to capture water features in waves and rockpools.

Amazing Paintings by Beth Robertson Fiddes
Jun 2017 • Solo
I have just visited this art gallery. It was a privilege to view the display of paintings by Beth Robertson Fiddes. This exhibition runs until 30th July 2017 and, in my opinion, is well worth seeing with some outstanding landscape paintings.

Nice gallery to look around in
May 2017 • Friends
Nice gallery to look around in - seemed to have a themed exhibition on. Deduction of 1 mark as we expected more paintings / drawings/ artwork to be able to look at and potentially buy and the selection was very limited.

Hello Emma, Thank you for taking time to review our gallery and I'm sorry to hear we lost a mark on your visit to An Talla Solais due to the lack of work on sale. In case you are passing Ullapool again, I thought it might be helpful to let you know that we have a changing programme of exhibitions so the gallery changes every five or six weeks and will be different next time. The decision on what work is for sale in the main exhbition and its price is dictated by the artists involved so we always have a smaller selection - The Room - which carries an alternative to the main exhibition of contemporary art by some of best artists working in Scotland today. Work in The Room is always for sale and during your visit was carrying a selection of landscape paintings by Kirstie Cohen. Also you will have passed through Cabinet on your visit. Cabinet is a small independent shop at the front of the gallery which carries arts and crafts including many prints and paintings - some by the local artists who run it.

Excellent small gallery
Mar 2017 • Couples
This is a really lovely small gallery where regular exhibitions are staged and the focus is on the work of local artists. There are some wonderfully talented people in Ullapool and it is great that their work can be brought into the public domain in this way. We have just been to the 'end of course' exhibition of students of the most recent art course put on through the gallery and were very impressed. It is a most welcoming place and you can meet some really interesting people.
