Join Charlotte Rostek author of "Scottish Women Artists" and gain further insight into Dovecot's important work with artists since 1912.
In this talk, Charlotte Rostek celebrates the strength Scottish women artists have shown over the last 250 years to get the space to be recognised on the contemporary art scene.
In her important survey, she introduces the story of over 60 artists, from the eighteenth century to today’s acclaimed figures, looking into their professional and personal journey.
Rostek will discuss the pioneering Catherine Read as well as breakthrough Victorians such as Phoebe Anna Traquair and 1880’s Glasgow Girl, Bessie MacNicol. Twentieth-century artists range from Beatrice Huntingdon and Anne Redpath to Joan Eardley, Elizabeth Blackadder, Victoria Crowe and Alison Watt, alongside more contemporary practitioners.
Rostek will be in conversation with Dovecot Director Celia Joicey about the tapestry studio’s work with artists since 1912 including new projects with Alberta Whittle and Sekai Machache.
Charlotte Rostek is a professional in the arts and heritage sector, who started out as a fine art curator. She currently works as Development Lead for the Buccleuch Living Heritage Trust at Dalkeith Palace in Midlothian and is also Dumfries House Curator Emeritus.
