New outdoor art gallery comes to Argyll, Scotland

Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park, opens June 24, 2012

Kyles of Bute, Argyll

On June 24, 2012 the Caol Ruadh Sculpture Park on the Kyles of Bute,

Argyll will open to the public for the first time. The outdoor gallery

will showcase and sell contemporary sculpture created in Scotland.

The park, in the gardens of the 20 acre ‘Caol Ruadh (pronounced col

ru’) estate, is surrounded by native woodland, creative landscaped

gardens and a statuesque late Victorian house. The fast changing

weather patterns create a rich palette of colours, moods and lights. It

is the combination of land and weather that gives Caol Ruadh its

unique and dramatic background, perfect for sculpture and outdoor art


Exhibiting work from Scotland based artists and sculptors, Caol Ruadh

is celebrating Scottish talent, honing in on the very best it has to offer.

Resident sculptors include, award winning Andrea Geile who, sculpts

from everlasting Corten steel, often grouped with real planting, Rob

Mulholland, a contemporary sculptor and installation artist and Natalie

Taylor, whose recent commissions include Edinburgh City Council.

Founder Karen Scotland said: “I have long had a love affair with the

Argyll coast and the grounds of Caol Ruadh is the perfect place to

showcase the very best of Scottish talent. My co-founder Anne

Edmonds and I have worked with the leading contemporary artists to

install their art into this unique setting.
