Andrew Patrizio will introduce the work of well-known and highly respected Scottish artist Robert Callender, who made an artform out of combing Scotland’s beaches, particularly its far North-Western reaches. His work delights audiences with its clever technique, but there is also a darker message behind the magnificent objects he made.

Andrew Patrizio is Professor of Scottish Visual Culture at Edinburgh College of Art (University of Edinburgh). He is the author of a chapter for the major portfolio book ‘A2B: Robert Callender’ (2015).

Free, but booking is essential. To book, please contact the City Art Centre on 0131 529 3993.
