ADFAS Narrabri ” A Tale of Two Barbaras”.

March 10 @ 5:30 am - 9:30 am

Presented by Catherine Wallace
Monday 9 March 2020 – 7pm

In this lecture we look at the work of two female sculptors who lived in Cornwall, UK for most of their lives. Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) became a leading light in the modernist movement in British art. Barbara Tribe (1913 – 2000) came from Australia and was a talented sculptor. She returned to Australia on many occasions in later life. We take a fascinating in depth look at the similarities and differences in the work of these two pioneering female artists of the 20th Century.

Catherine Wallace is a UK based Arts Society lecturer and resides in Cornwall. She holds a degree in Fine Art from Canterbury College of Art and a Masters from St Andrews. Catherine was a curator of Falmouth Art Gallery from 1993 through to 2000. She has been a freelance exhibition organiser, author and lecturer since then and has organised numerous art and sculpture exhibitions.
