People, Places and Piazzas. The Life and Art of Charles H. Mackie
Charles Mackie was educated in Edinburgh and his studio was located in Roseburn. His travels took him to France where he met Gauguin, Vuillard and Les Symbolistes. Hornel welcomed him to Kirkcudbright and he gave painting lessons to Laura Knight during his time in Staithes. He worked in an impressive range of media: oils, watercolours, murals, woodblock prints, tooled leather and sculpture. The City Art Centre is planning to hold an exhibition on the anniversary of his death in 2020. The talk will give an overview of his life, work and contribution to Scottish and British art. Pat Clark: is a retired headteacher with a passion for Charles Mackie, a neglected figure in Scottish art. She is the author of ‘People, Places and Piazzas. The Life and Art of Charles H. Mackie’, published by Sansom & Co. (2016)
