Yesterday West Cornwall DFAS organised a Study Day on the topic of Twentieth Century Sculpture, at the Alverton Hotel in Truro. A hall full of DFAS members from all over Cornwall (and beyond!) turned up to hear lecturer Linda Smith.
We were treated to three fantastic sessions throughout the day, including discussions of Cubism, Russian constructivism, British post-war sculpture and contemporary organic sculpture. Linda explained everything so lucidly and without any notes! One member said she felt as though she’d had all the things she thought she knew about sculpture finally explained to her in a totally cohesive way Some of the works we were told about during the day were challenging, others were simply beautiful, but all were thought-provoking.
Those of you who were lucky enough to be at the Study Day, as well as those who have heard Linda lecture in the past, won’t be surprised to hear that we’ve had lots of positive feedback from those who attended.
