Our galleries present a varied programme of exhibitions - showcasing the work of both established artists and investing in those of the future.
APRIL: STALLS FOYER GALLERY
Carolyn is an acrylic artist based in Inverness. Over the years, she has developed an individual style that colourfully weaves themes of nature into images that have shades of pointillism - incorporating diamond and square shapes, as well as circles and dots. Among those artists who have influenced her work are Gustav Klimt, Paul Klee and Friedensreich Hundertwasser. She is inspired by nature, vibrant colours and impressionism.
Previous exhibitions of Carolyn’s work have taken place in Inchmore Gallery, Strathpeffer Pavilion, Cromarty Arts Centre and UPSTAIRS Gallery.

Years of Coasts and Waters: Alexander Williamson
A photographic project exploring how Nairn’s natural environment helped the local community cope with the Covid-19 outbreak.
Initiated in January 2020, and drawing inspiration from Scotland’s theme Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21, the portraits record two years of living with the global pandemic, highlighting how people in Nairn turned to the area's coastal waters for distraction, inspiration or consolation.

Terra Firma: Simon White
Simon White is drawn to the seemingly endless Highland skies and the interplay between them and the sea/landscape, often in its winter form. As a self-taught artist he attempts to capture a realist view of the landscape in watercolour, challenging the boundaries of this medium as a result.
Terra Firma is an attempt to capture a series of mountains which have some meaning or significance to Simon.
