A new exhibition celebrating the Highland landscape opens at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery this weekend.

Titled Left at the Mountain, North to the Sea will run from Saturday to August 26 ith work by a range of artists including Emma Caldow, Rob Christie, Jana Emburey, Eileen Gatt, Ian Giles, Neil Macpherson, Lar MacGregor, Alex Main, Magi Sinclair, Leon Patchett, Pat Semple, Pamela Tait, Ian Westacott and Lucy Woodley

Their work is complemented by Barbara Rae, Jon Schueler, Dorothy Stirling, Frances Walker and Sylvia Wishart from the Highland Council’s collections.

Cathy Shankland, High Life Highland's visual art curator, said: “The work of these inspirational artists and makers communicates so eloquently about how intricately our culture, past and present, has been shaped by our relationship with the land."

She continued “Ideas are expressed in painting, sculpture, and craft through the symbolism and mystery of trees and mountains, half-seen visions in the play of light, never-ending skies with intimations of infinity, objects crafted from the debris of far-off lives cast up on our shores.

“The unique and fragile environment of the Highlands is the remnants of one of the last great European wildernesses.

"Inverness Museum and Art Gallery is proud to display this pertinent collection of artworks responding to themes relevant to all Highland residents.”

Steve Walsh, High Life Highland chief executive, said: “High Life Highland is proud to be displaying an array of artworks at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery that reflect the perspectives and experiences of those living within the Highland area."
