The forthcoming lecture organised by Friends of PSAD is back in school !

The lecture will be held on 13 November at around 7pm – after AGM meeting.  This lecture is free and exclusively for Friends of PSAD.

Art historian, Linda Smith, will give a talk on the artist Barbara Hepworth, one of the most significant names in twentieth-century sculpture whose work is enormously popular and very widely exhibited. This talk is a straightforward look at her life and career, emphasising her incredible talent as a carver, and her instinctive feel for the quality of her materials, plus the way in which she responded to the landscape around her. It also charts how her work moved gradually away from the human figure, and became more abstract and refined, and how it relates to the work of her contemporaries, including Henry Moore and Ben Nicholson.

Linda Smith is a well qualified art historian with a broad range of knowledge, and a special interest in British art, and the art of the twentieth century.
