A Thurso-based digital artist plans to bring an innovative and technological twist to the local art scene on Sunday {November 1] in the form of a free interactive online exhibition.

Upon entering, visitors can listen to an artist's talk illustrating the more significant adventures and influences of Lisa's creative journey. They can then take a virtual "walk through" of the full StoneScape collection and immerse themselves in each piece with spoken interpretation from the artist.

Lisa said: “The idea of hosting a virtual art exhibition struck me while generating ideas for the upcoming Caithness Market which takes place this Sunday, November 1.

"Exhibiting the full StoneScape collection under one roof and the story of how it all came to be has been on the cards for a long time but with current restrictions and the decrease in people’s sense of connection as a result, I thought why not take an exhibition online for all to see. Although timely to set up, the exhibition is relatively inexpensive to run, and highly accessible with people able to view from anywhere in the world."

Lisa said that putting the exhibition together felt quite similar to the "real deal" between art curating, virtual hanging and even music sourcing and brought back fond memories of her days as a design student.

“I’m delighted Scottish folk duo Charlie Grey and Joseph Peach will be providing music recorded live at Lyth Art Centre last year, so make sure to turn your speakers up upon arrival to the exhibition," she added.

The StoneScape Story is free to access and can be visited online at www.inspiredbycaithness.com/exhibition from 11am on Sunday, November 1 as part of #CaithnessMarket – a virtual market taking place on Facebook and Instagram with over 50 small local businesses signed up to take part. Lisa's show will run for a month until December 1.

Businesses go live between 11am and 3pm on the day offering exclusive discounts, demonstrations, new product launches along with Q&A sessions. Each business pays a £10 sign up fee in order to take part, 100 per cent of which is donated to a local charity nominated by public vote.

This month’s charity is Friends of Annie, who support care experienced young people in Caithness.
