Standing Stones, Stags, ‘Spooks’ & Splendour – The story of Scottish art by Lachlan Goudie
Sat June 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm| £15.00
Lachlan Goudie takes you on a fast fling through 5,000 years of Scottish art. In a passionate and personal account, brimming with fascinating characters and historical events, Lachlan will describe how creativity shaped Scotland’s past, its culture and its destiny.
Scottish art never existed in isolation. Lachlan will reveal how Scotland’s artists and craftsmen created work that influenced and responded to the aesthetic movements transforming the global course of art history. It’s a tale of radicals and visionaries, artists with an international mind-set and a bold sense of their own cultural background, who resolved to create work at the forefront of Western Art and culture.
Lachlan Goudie is an artist, author and broadcaster who wrote and presented the landmark BBC television series ‘The Story of Scottish Art’.
He has been a judge across three series of BBC1’s ‘Big Painting Challenge’ and reprised this role on BBC1’s ‘Celebrity Big Painting Challenge’, 2018. He regularly contributes to the BBC World Service radio programme, ‘From our own Correspondent’ and has presented several concerts on BBC Radio 3.
Lachlan was born and grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, before studying English at Christ’s College, Cambridge and Fine Art at Camberwell College of Art in London.
