A Private View with Michael Agnew
Michael Agnew the principal lecturer in printmaking at Gray’s School of Art provided a short introductory talk on November 3rd explaining why he had selected certain artworks and objects for an exhibition held in the Georgina Scott Sutherland Library. The exhibition represents the 25 years the artist and teacher has spent in Aberdeen City thus far.
“I selected the works in this exhibition, in an attempt to bring together a series of objects, books, paintings, drawings and prints, that are clues to describing my personal experiences and the people I have encountered in Aberdeen. It has been an opportunity to illustrate the landscape of my working life through memory, place, story, narrative and metaphor. An autobiographical trip triggering pivotal moments in my development artistically and as a teacher.”
