ARTWORK created by a Black Isle artist using a wide range of materials has gone on show at an Inverness gallery.

Assemblages by Lee Bruce can be seen in the Upstairs Gallery, which is based in the offices of HRI|Munro Architecture, Academy Street.

Ms Bruce, of Fortrose, makes box constructions of varied elements of collage, photography, maps or map fragments, found objects and words, composed within a deep box frame.

Her work is place-specific and created in response to invitations or commissions, but is also inspired in a direct personal response to a specific place, purpose or event.

Her poems and those of family and others is integral to many of her pieces.

She also creates cards in collage form using handmade papers, mosses, grasses, leaves, old maps and photographs, trinkets, shells and silver leaf.

Assemblages features a selection of both commissioned and self-generated work created over several years.

It will be on show until Friday, August 2.

Upstairs Gallery is open to the public between 10am and 4pm on weekdays. Applications for exhibition space can be made online through www.upstairs.scot.

The site also provides details of forthcoming exhibitions.
