About A Fine Line

'A Fine Line' features works by four contemporary artists based in Scotland - Lizzie Farey, Angie Lewin, Frances Priest and Bronwen Sleigh. The exhibition explores the fluid relationship that exists between art and craft, bringing together artists working across a diverse range of disciplines including printmaking, drawing, sculpture and ceramics.

Working with different media but united by detailed observation and strong draughtsmanship, this group of artists experiment with linear mark-making and drawing in its widest sense. Each artist produces works inspired by places and spaces in either the natural or man-made environment.

Exhibition in partnership with Inverness Museum and Art Gallery and Gracefield Arts Centre.

Days: Wednesday to Saturday 10am - 5pm, Sunday 12noon - 5pm
