Business Description

For Arts Sake is here to support the artistic community in Orkney.

There are a number of different ways we approach this

The Art Shop.

The Art Shop is is now downstairs at Voluntary Action Orkney (VAO) at 6 Bridge Street, Kirkwall, very near to the Harbour.

…………look for the yellow palettes  


We are open Monday to Friday 9am- 5pm and Saturday 10am – 4pm

The art shop stocks a wide range of artists and craft materials and we are happy to source special orders and requests.

Activity sessions for all the community

Taster Sessions , Portrait Group,  Spinning Group  Knit & Natter & Patchwork Group meet regularly on Saturdays at the Art Shop. For dates of the next sessions see the calendar of events

News and reviews of local artistic events

The  “What’s on”  page on the website and the notice-board at the Art Shop allow local artists in every medium an opportunity to advertise their exhibitions and courses.

Community Gallery Space

We now have gallery space for local artists to exhibit and sell their work. For details of our current exhibition see The Gallery page.

So whether you are a regular customer or someone who hasn’t yet found us, we look forward to welcoming you to the Art Shop.
