About Digital Lecture: Charles H. Mackie: Colour and Light

This lecture will set Mackie’s art in the context of his life. His Scottish artistic roots underpinned his engagement with French art and continental ideas. His travels in France and Italy provided new vistas for his very individual fusion of colour and light. Pat Clark is a retired headteacher with a passion for Charles Mackie. Her study of the artist was published by Sanson & Co. in 2016: People, Places and Piazzas: The Life and Art of Charles H. Mackie.

This lecture will now take place on our City Art Centre Facebook page. No need to book, just join us on the day!
