IBAC – Isle of Bute’s Artists’ Collective – was established in 2007 in response to the need for a supportive network for the Island’s artists and craftspeople. The core group has since grown and we felt it was time to put our artists on the map – literally!

The 2012 Studio Trail was our first event. We have grown year on year with more than 40 artists exhibiting at our 2023 trail. The brochure for that event is now online here. Look out for the 2024 edition!

Throughout the year you can find IBAC at Mount Stuart, and our members regularly sell at Bute Yard in the centre of Rothesay.

Many of our artists have their own online stores - see links on our individual pages - and some sell through Isle20.com.
