Open studio weekend is invitation to view first phase of transformation

By Margaret Chrystall

WASPS Inverness Creative Academy in the old Inverness Royal Academy building at Midmills is inviting people to come and look at an exhibition by artists there this weekend.

The space is now home to over 40 visual artists and makers as well as three creative learning organisations.

On Saturday and Sunday, July 27 and 28, between 10am and 5pm, Inverness Creative Academy artists are opening the doors to the public.

They are offering the chance to see their work on show in the transformed gym hall and also as works in progress in each of their unique studio spaces.

Since the completion of refurbishments to the first phase of this important Inverness building in November 2018, locals have been knocking on the door to view a building that many attended when it was Inverness Royal Academy or – later – Inverness College.

This Open Studio Weekend is a chance to be able to step over the threshold to view the first phase of the creative hub and meet the artistic community that now calls it home.

Wasps is the UK’s largest studio provider and Inverness Creative Academy is their 19th building in Scotland, heralding the first major creative hub in the Highlands.
