"To encourage others to look at the world differently. This is what I see as the primary purpose of an artist. When I look to the skies of Scotland I see it in precisely the same way as my prehistoric ancestors. What new perceptions can I offer? Nothing...there is nothing new, it has all been conceived before.

Scott Naismith

"However, as an artist I can realise these perceptions and ideas visually in a refined craft in order to portray a unique vision."

ISLAND BLUE GALLERY

Island Blue Gallery is an art gallery and gift shop located at Baliscate, near Tobermory on the Isle of Mull. We have a beautiful, light space filled with works by many skillful Scottish artists ranging from the mysterious and tranquil sweeping landscapes of Garry Brander to the mythical and surreal fantastical worlds of Matylda Konecka. A lot of the prints we stock have a distinctly Scottish feel and truly capture the essence of Scotland's landscape and wildlife.
