How Can Art Help Us?

Free Public Talk by Ross Gibson

4pm, Thursday 26 April, Dress Circle

Main Corner & Riddoch Art Gallery, 1 Bay Road Mount Gambier
No booking required.

“Drawing on some ancient definitions and some modern ones, I will consider how art us useful — indeed essential — nowadays. I will discuss the benefits of art to the individual and to the societies that support it, make it and engage with it. To illustrate my general observations, I will show some specific examples of my own work and of contemporary artists whom I admire.”
