Inspired by Fishertown

This evening's reception at the Stables celebrated the winners of the 'Fishertown Creative Arts' competition and marked the end of Lynn Baxter's month-long visit as artist-in-residence.

Amongst the competition winners chosen by judges David Alston, Jane Clunas and Lynn Baxter were 'Found Fishertown' (right) a 'junk' sculpture by Rosie Newman, a self-righting wooden boat by Bryn Leyshon (age eight), and 'Harold's Shed' — a collection of 22 detailed photographs by Iain Robertson of Harold Hossack's shed on Gordon's Lane. Prizes for the three winners were carved in wood by James Flavell.

Other contributions to the competition included paintings, collages, poems, a one-act play and a specially-composed tune. The art competition complemented the Fishertown exhibition currently on display in the Cromarty Courthouse Museum.

In the main exhibition area, visitors were able to view Lynn's text and visual pairings of word-pictures with drawings and wooden constructions — all of which show her perceptive insight into the multiple images which make up 'Cromarty'.
