One thought on “Winter Salon | Call For Work

  1. The Timespan Arts Group are becoming so far up themselves that if they bend over far enough and look upwards they will find what they have become! They are 200 miles too far North and living in a dubious world of non realism. This is a wee Highland village which does not pretend to be the Art Centre of Scotland despite what people who hsve an eye to advancement and use this as a stepping stone think!
    They have alienated most of the village and have become a joke. Vis……nail clippings and beeswax in one exhibit! How crass is that?
    We have a rich heritage and this is being ignored!
    It is time for Timespan Arts Council to “Get Real”
    Who the hell wants endless photographic and video displays.?
    There are a lot of “Real” artists and craftsmen out there who will not submit to Timespan because it has become a waste of time snd effort..
    It is time to get back to basics and the rich artistic heritage of our ancestry.
    This is my opinion and I doubt it will be posted!
