FULLY BOOKED Artist Talk: Anna Gillespie

A talk by the creator of Heysham's new sculpture 'SHIP'

21 March, 7.00pm at Heysham Library


Half Moon Bay, in sight of Heysham Port, has been confirmed as the location for an evocative new sculpture, SHIP by artist, Anna Gillespie which will be installed this March. Providing new focus on Morecambe Bay’s landscape and maritime heritage, the artwork reflects the importance of seaborne trade in bringing news, innovation and shaping the character of the area.

In this special artist's talk, Anna will talk about her artistic practice and previous projects. She'll draw out the themes that inspire her work, particulary how her creativity connects with places that influence it, and her love of the sea. She'll be discussing her passion for different materials, including the bronze casting process that will be seen within SHIP.
