From the 2nd June, we'll have some gorgeous silk pieces available to view in The Gallery Cafe exhibition area. Each piece is created by the super talented Valerie Barker. Valerie is an artist, cartographer and designer. Her work includes botanical illustration, estate maps and embroidery. Currently she is exploring the use of silk and thread to construct landscapes and seascapes observed on and around her croft, in Caithness and in the wider environment.
Next up in the gallery we'll host the Industrial Heritage of Caithness exhibition with photographs, maps and artifacts on display. The exhibition is part of the Industrial Heritage Conference which takes place in Wick from 22nd-27th June. For more details and information on how to attend, click here.
