Evening Event: An Artistic Infinity: the Kirkcudbright Artists Remembered Project

Thursday 25 April 2019, 6.30 pm for 7.00 pm

This Scottish-themed evening event involves our founder Chair Hilary Alcock, who will give a lecture on the Kirkcudbright Artists Remembered Project in which she has been actively involved.

The Kirkcudbright Artists’ Colony was an artists’ community that existed approximately between 1880 and 1980 in the village of Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway. The Kirkcudbright Artists Remembered is an oral history project led by the Kirkcudbright Harbour Cottage Trust. The project is now completed and has generated more than 30 audio recordings of recollections of artists in the town between the 1940s and 1960s.

A couple of short videos, inspired by the recordings, have been created:
