We are delighted to invite you to Lyth Arts Centre’s Summer Exhibition: From Wifey to Wifie.
From Wifey to Wifie explores the changing roles of women in Caithness from 1918 through to the present day. Marking the centenary of Representation of the People Act which first allowed some women in the UK the right to vote, the exhibition fuses historical context with contemporary visual art to transport you from 1918’s ‘Wifey’ to 2018’s ‘Wifie’.
