Art historian guest speaker at Coffee Time Talk in Budleigh Salterton

Fairlynch Museum is holding a Coffee Time Talk in Budleigh Salterton with art historian Maggie Giraud as the guest speaker.

The event, being staged in The Peter Hall, will take place on Wednesday (September 4).

Doors open at 10.30am for an 11am start.

The title of the talk is ‘Why St Ives?’.

Maggie is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and was the founding curator of High Cross House.

She divides her time between Devon and London, and has a reputation for making the topic of art history accessible and enjoyable to all.

Her talk will examine the artistic history of Cornwall and its polarisation on St Ives. She will discuss key trends and artists, as well as the development of Tate St Ives as a guardian of the county’s art heritage.

Light refreshments will be available.

Attendees are asked to pay £5, or £3 for those who are Friends of Fairlynch.
