Join local artist Patricia Townsend for a fascinating illustrated talk about her exhibition ‘Trees, Trauma and Transformation’, currently on show in Brantwood’s Blue Gallery.
Patricia’s exhibition at Brantwood is her response to the uprooting of local trees during the violent storms of 2022. Patricia will talk about her creative process and the inspiration which the surroundings of Cumbria provide for her various artworks.
Patricia joins us as part of our Wednesday night ‘Soup Talks’ series during which we host locals or people passing through the area to share their stories and expertise with a captive audience over a bowl of homemade soup! Often illustrated, each talk lasts approximately 40 minutes with time for questions and informal chat. The Stable Bar is open for drinks before and after the talk and those with tickets, get 10% off on the night.
