Castle Gallery Inverness – exhibition of new work by Vega and Isabell Dickson

The Castle Gallery in Inverness is holding an exhibition preview on 7 May, of new work by Vega and Isabell Dickson.

The startling sunsets and clarity of the light on the Isle of Lewis have had a profound effect on Vega‘s paintings. She uses bold, vibrant colour combinations to depict this starkly beautiful island and its surrounding waters in all weather conditions.”

Isabell Dickson
Isabell works outdoors whenever and wherever possible. Her paintings are a response to the land and seascapes around her, using bold strokes and deep colour to capture the excitement and grandeur of the Highlands with authoritative simplicity.”

The preview of this exciting exhibition at the Highland’s finest gallery will be from 6 pm until 8 pm and will be followed by a post preview party at La Tortilla Asesina, with tapas and sangria at £15 per head. Please RSVP the Castle Gallery.

The exhibition itself continues until 29 May, 2010.
