Teachers' Private View, Joan Eardley: A Sense of Place

  • Wednesday, 18th January 2017, 5.15-7pm
  • Free, ticketed.

Modern Two (Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art)


Join the curator for a tour of the exhibition and share ideas over tea/coffee and cake.

All nursery, primary and secondary teachers welcome.

This exhibition looks in detail at Joan Eardley's working process and makes connections between her photographs, drawings and finished paintings. There are two very different themes: the extraordinarily candid paintings of children in the Townhead area of Glasgow; and paintings of the fishing village of Catterline, just south of Aberdeen, with its leaden skies and wild sea. It draws on a remarkable archive of sketches and photographs which remains largely unknown and unpublished, spanning the fifteen years of her career.

Places are limited so please let us know as early as possible if you have to cancel.

Booking required: please book via Eventbrite
