I am delighted to announce that my proposal for Ormaig Landart Project has received Open Project Funding from Creative Scotland and The National Lottery Funding. The project will be completed in August 2020.
250 tree stumps on the slope next to Ormaig rockart site near Kilmartin in Mid-Argyll will be painted with white lime wash to create the shape of a large circle in the landscape. The circular shape will respond to the cup and ring marks at Ormaig rockart site, which has been created over 4000 years ago.
The project includes the production of a short documentary film which can be viewed online.
Ormaig Landart Project is being supported by Kilmartin Museum and Forestry and Land Scotland as owner of the land.
Ormaig Landart Project is an hours walk away from Carnassarie Castle car park near Kilmartin and will be accessible to the public.
