Northlight Gallery in Stromness which had to close due to the Covid19 restrictions is to reopen for the week beginning Sunday 9th August until Sunday 16th,
Meg Telfer was the curator of the first show in Northlight this year; ‘North – Land and Sea’, which opened on the 8th March, closed on the 17th, and has been trapped in the gallery ever since.
Meg has been shielding at home in Skerray and couldn’t get out and about until the end of this month.
Gallery owner Cary Welling hopes that residents will take the opportunity to see (at a safe distance from each other) beautiful prints, paintings, ceramics, glass and a sound installation.
It might also be a good opportunity to buy Christmas presents. There is now a fully illustrated Catalogue for sale at the Gallery for £4.50.
After that, the gallery will close again, probably until the end of the year. Most of the artists expecting shows this year prefer to rebook in 2021.
Until then artists and craftspeople are being invited to exhibit some of their work in the three street facing windows of the gallery. These will change every two weeks until Northlight can reopen properly.
