T'oltans celebrated at private viewing

Exhibition to coincide with book three

A private viewing is being held tonight (Fri 7), to celebrate the latest instalment of one of the most popular works of Manx social history.

The book series 'Manx Tholtans' is a documentation of the Island's endangered vernacular architecture - especially isolated rural homesteads which are abandoned and quickly deteriorating.

To coincide with the launch of 'part three', photographer Ray Kelly and partner Niamh - a multimedia artist - have also curated 'T'oltans Reclaimed: A Reflection of Times Past' at the Hodgson Loom Gallery in Laxey.

The preview takes place from 6 until 8:30 this evening, with a Tholtan themed exhibition featuring installations, photographs, family heirlooms and more remaining on site until Saturday 29 - that will be open to the public from tomorrow.

For more information, contact the Hodgson Loom Gallery in Laxey on 861395.
