Across four gallery spaces, we present a varied programme of exhibitions throughout the year. All exhibitions have FREE ENTRY.


Paintings and Drawings - Stephen Gregory (First Circle Gallery)

Oil paintings and large pastel drawings in which the artist challenges himself to create original, uplifting and sometimes humorous images, while maintaining a respect for the places and people he depicts.


Silver Stories - Evija Laivina (Stalls Gallery)

Originally started as a documentary photo series in 2021, Silver Stories evolved into a visual exploration of the symbiotic relationship between natural beauty and nature and acts as a visual love letter to the beauty that lies within.

Silver Stories invites the viewer to celebrate authenticity and self-discovery, to reflect on the significance of hair as a symbol of identity, growth and connection to the world around us.


Amorphous-ism-Jane Nestor (Stalls Gallery)

A series of oil paintings exploring the images created by water in nature. Seeking the positive in our wet weather by celebrating the abstract images that rain and reflections give us.


Cairngorms Connect Commonplace Exhibition - Elizabeth Reeder and Amanda Thomson (First Circle Gallery)

Working with local communities and ecological restoration project, Cairngorms Connect, artists Elizabeth Reeder and Amanda Thomson have created a Commonplace Book for the Cairngorms.

Bringing together a range of observations, records, documents, knowledge and images made by people who know a place deeply, Commonplace Books express a place both intimately and broadly. The idea is evocative: that a whole can be created of disparate parts.

With over 50 submissions, including photography, drawings and writing, this final collection captures a snapshot of our lives in this landscape.


Journeys to Wellness - Inverness Openarts (First Circle Gallery)

A celebration of two years of Openarts running creative wellbeing sessions aimed at reducing loneliness and isolation and removing social and financial barriers to creativity in a non-judgemental environment.

This exhibition runs from Sun 2 - Mon 17 Jun.


Documentary Photography Awards - Royal Photographic Society Documentary Group (Stalls Gallery)

Bi-annual competition exhibition in three categories - members of The Society, International Open Category and an international Photography Student Category.


Cosmic Minimalism: A Journey Through Universal Symbols - Gael Hillyard (Stalls Gallery)

A mixed-media exhibition presenting the universe's vastness and intricacy through a collection of minimalist artworks, using symbols to express the profound and enigmatic connection between the cosmos and human understanding.


Resonating - Terry Williams and Peter Johnston (Stalls Gallery)

Over two years, Terry and Peter have worked side by side in the Inverness Darkroom making traditional photographic prints of the natural world and the built environment.

This exhibition showcases their contrasting approaches to both the subject matter and to print making. Using hand-made prints and hybrid negative/digital photographs, Resonating explores the connections and differences in their work.


The Smile Project - Inverness Darkroom Photographers (Stalls Gallery)

A collaboration between Inverness Darkroom-based photographers on the relationship of people to the smile. The analogue images included in this exhibition were chosen by sponsor Hillyard MacDonald from work submitted by members of the Inverness Darkroom.


Full Circle - Rosemary Reid (First Circle Gallery)

Rosie’s work is an expressive take on the Scottish landscape which explores emotions connected to place, colour, mark-making and surface, allowing the viewer to connect and bring their own experience to the work.

This exhibition runs from Sat 22 Jun - Sat 27 Jul.
