This exhibition is a celebration of Stromness through paintings, prints and photographs bringing together a cross section of historic and contemporary works of art that show how artists have studied, interpreted and re-presented images of the historic town. 
Portrait of Stromness forms part of the town’s Per Mare celebrations and offers a unique insight into the work of the many creative people who have worked in Stromness, both as visiting professionals and those resident in the town from over the last 200 years. 

We are grateful for the support of Northlink Ferries and Museums Galleries Scotland in presenting Portrait of Stromness.
