Society Of Caithness Artists Offer An ON-LINE Exhibition

16th May 2020

In the absence of their usual Summer Exhibition in Thurso, The Society of Caithness Artists offer all artists with a Caithness connection an opportunity to exhibit with the Society as part of their on-line exhibition.

The Society recognises the negative impact the present situation of galleries and exhibition closures has on individual artists so offer this alternative. Says SCA Chair Ian Pearson "it is important that artists continue to be creative for their well-being as well as everyone else and I also know how important it is to have an outlet for ones work.

Normally the Society would be busy organising screens and plinths and planning for artists to bring their work to hang and display but these aren't normal times so we have to react accordingly"

The on-line exhibition is being promoted as a "Showcase" event which means that the Society of Caithness Artists will not be taking any commissions and visitors to the Society's website will be invited to make direct contact with an artist of interest to them. Ian further explains "supporting local artists and all artists with a Caithness connection is at the heart of what the Society has been doing for the last eighty five years. To demonstrate just how passionate the Society is in helping the local visual art scene this on-line exhibition will be free to enter."

Each artist can submit up to four pieces of work and images can be uploaded through the Society's website using this link

The exhibition is scheduled to commence on July 1st and close on July 31st. The deadline for artists wishing to take part is June 15th and all images must be submitted by this date.

Ian says “Unfortunately we cannot hold a preview as we have done previously but I am sure artists will use their imagination to explore the possibilities of a virtual refreshment celebration!”
