The Artist as Beachcomber: A Tour of the Work of Robert Callender

14:00 on 14 June 2018
City Art Centre

Book now

Andrew Patrizio will introduce the work of well-known and highly respected Scottish artist Robert Callender, who made an artform out of combing Scotland’s beaches, particularly its far North-Western reaches. His work delights audiences with its clever technique, but there is also a darker message behind the magnificent objects he made.

Andrew Patrizio is Professor of Scottish Visual Culture at Edinburgh College of Art. He is the author of a chapter on the artist for the major portfolio book ‘A2B: Robert Callender’ (2015).

Free. To book, please contact the City Art Centre reception on 0131 529 3993 or visit Edinburgh Museums website.
