The talk is being organised by the Friends of University Art and Music. Admission is £6 for FUAM members and their guests, £8 for non-members and free for those joining FUAM on the day. Any profit goes to the FUAM charity to buy artworks or fund concerts at the University.
If you can't make Patrick's talk, there is also a "retrospective" private view being held on Friday 11th March at the University from 6pm, so please do come along.
From 17th January - 19th March 2011 some of my illustrations for the New Arcadian Journal(NAJ) will feature in an exhibition which is being held at Leeds University Gallery to celebrate the Journal's 30th anniversary. "Creative and bucolic, the New Arcadian Journal, continues to shed new light on historical landscapes as well as contemporary artists' gardens, by championing the study of political gardening, and by promoting restoration of place and meaning."
A further exhibition featuring my work for the NAJ is also scheduled to open towards the end of 2011 in the library of the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds. I shall post full details of this nearer the time.
