A new art gallery opened on Thursday (August 8) - the 18 East Gallery - displaying the work of Joseph Thomas, a photographer whose parents moved to Bute three years ago.

Joseph said: “After visiting a few times I decided that Bute is where I want to live and work. I am inspired by both the people and the environment.

“My new gallery at 18 East Princes Street will be an exhibition space for my work and the work of other contemporary artists/photographers.”
