How Art Works in Life

Friday, April 24 @ 19:30 - 21:30

An evening of poetry based on Philip Hutton’s collection called “How Art Works in Life” about imaginary visual artists

The poems will be read by Philip Huton and Loretta Whitcomb.

We expect this will be of interest to most of our members exploring as it does the role of art in society.

Philip Hutton Philip is a Peebles-basedpainter and  poet. He attended Daniel Stewart’s College, Gray’s school of Art Aberdeen and has taught at Selkirk High School as well as being a peripatetic art teacher at Borders Region primary schools, and painting and history of art tutor at Borders College (Heriot-Watt). He has also been involved with U3A residential art history courses and recently achieved a BA (Open) from the Open University. He recently judged the Penicuik Turner Prize for us.

Loretta Whitcomb

Loretta has read with Philip in the past. The inclusion of a femae voice enlivens the readings and Loretta’s interest in drama brings the poetry to life.

Tickets will be on sale from early March 2020
