Don't Decorate Rectangles - SOLD OUT!

DATE: Thursday 23rd November
TIME: 19.30-20.30
LOCATION: East Quay Kitchen
East Quay Kitchen will be serving evening meals before the talk - please book in advance.

Join us for an evening with artist and writer Rose Davey, as she shares her thoughts on the life and work of 20th Century painter, Philip Guston.

Guston's many writings reveal an artist grappling with the complexity and contradiction of image making. The transformation his work underwent in the last decade of his life lost him friends and almost his reputation. Yet his belief that the greatest technique an artist can possess is the ability to change, led him to become one of the most influential painters of the 20th Century.

About Rose Davey:
Since completing her MFA in Painting at the Slade School of Fine Art in 2010, Rose has returned each year to deliver art history lectures to Graduate Painting students. The Slade lectures were repurposed in Spring 2020 to be presented live online as LOCKDOWN LECTURES and have been staged at The Poltimore Arms, Exmoor. Rose also teaches at The Slade Summer School, most recently delivering a course in August exploring how to tell a good painting from a bad one.

Tickets cost £5 - booking required.
