AN EXCITING exhibition of cutting edge work by internationally renowned digital artist Jayne Wallace is on display at Weisdale’s Bonhoga Gallery in March.
The Shetland show will be Wallace’s first solo exhibition in the UK of her digital jewellery and interactive art objects.
It includes work from her Anchor Points project carried out when she was artist in residence at The Booth, in Scalloway, in 2009.
That project involved working closely with two Shetland fishing families and has kept going for the past three years, resulting in work on display at Bonhoga.
Some other pieces explore memory loss and dementia, and how modern technology can enhance communication.
The exhibition starts on Friday 9 March at 5.30pm until Sunday 22 April, and is supported by Shetland Arts and Northumbria University. Everyone is welcome t the opening night.
