Our exhibition programme captures both traditional and contemporary art from local and national artists, in a variety of media. Sometimes vibrant, sometimes challenging, but always thought provoking. All exhibitions are free (please check our opening hours prior to visiting.)

Open Studios Ayrshire is now entering its eleventh year, promoting local artists and makers and providing a platform to share their work, ideas and passions.

This year, the main OSA weekend will be held in September, but we have a variety of supporting events planned. One of these will be a group exhibition, featuring most of the artists all together at the HAC.

Driven to Abstraction: An Exhibition by Gillian Park

Wednesday 11 May – Saturday 25 June

Harbour Arts Centre, Main Galleries

Free Entry

A bit of a departure from Gillian’s usual paintings, this exhibition is filled with the bold colours and expressive mark making we’d expect but with a twist.

The paintings in the 2022 exhibition Drive to Abstraction have been fed by her sketchbook work – tiny fragments of her sketchbook pages have inspired her huge canvases, wooden panels and tiny cameos – bursting with colour in oils, pastels & mixed media.

Gillian’s sketchbooks accompany the exhibition so feel free to have a rummage through and if you’re feeling inspired, join one of the accompanying workshops & exhibition walk & talks.
