Our galleries work with artists to present a varied programme of exhibitions - showcasing the work of both established artists and investing in those of the future.
Elliot's Stories - Aga Spalding
1 - 31 May
The works are from a series that reflect a connection between the land and her son’s childhood. Every painting is a story, a glimpse of memory, a print of growing up in the Highlands. Paintbrushes and paints are tools to describe emotions, colours and forms instead of words.
They also represent emotions related to being a mother, adapting to changes and getting through the journey of Motherhood.

Alan James McLeod
1- 31 July
The creation of multi-layered, highly textural surfaces is the primary driver for these artworks. Often collaging different papers together to produce mainly abstract pieces, that invite the viewer's own interpretation. Bringing to mind remembered or imagined, far flung locations, ancient artefacts and decorative schemes. Inspiration for my work comes from diverse sources, including imagery of planetary bodies, direct responses to music, and my background in textile design.
Art Behind Bars
10 - 30 June (Official opening 13 June, 2-4pm), Blink Gallery
Art Behind Bars is a collection of artwork produced by learners attending art classes run by Fife College within H.M.P Inverness. The purpose of the exhibition is to allow inmates to express their views and emotions through the medium of art and to allow the public an insight into the inside.
A creative space where exciting new Highland artists, young and old, can exhibit their work. We want to give opportunities to artists finding their voice and a place where audiences can discover new local talent.
Stalls Foyer & Second Floor Gallery
Spaces where established artists can exhibit and sell their work.
Our gallery space dedicated to the local community and the creative work that they produce.
