Do you have information or images of Skye Camanachd volunteers?  If so, a shinty art project requires your help!

Highland Print Studio Manager, John McNaught, has been working with Skye Camanachd on a Studio project entitled Throw Up 20.18.  As well as documenting his time with the club photographically, he is also producing a series of hand-produced prints at the Studio.

Along with the work of three other artists at Beauly Shinty Club, Newtonmore Camanachd Club and Fort William Shinty Club, the work will form a touring exhibition, with its debut at the 2018 Camanachd Cup Final in Oban.

John has been using instant film to take portrait photos of the invaluable Skye Camanachd volunteers. To complement these photos, he intends to produce linocut prints similar in dimensions to the instant prints. These will be portraits of people who are no longer with us, but during their lives gave time to the club. They could be from any period of the 125-year history.

John is looking for information on these individuals and would ideally like a photograph of the person and a few words about them.

The exhibition will be in September.
