Talk : Always Boats and Men by Will Maclean

Start: Thursday 26 March 2020 19:00

End: Thursday 26 March 2020 20:30

One of Scotland’s best-known sculptors, Will Maclean MBE, RSA. FRSE, will reflect on his childhood in a fishing village in Skye and his time working as a ring-net fisherman.

This experience led to a major bursary in 1973 to study ring-net herring fishing. The resulting Ring-Net Project, a body of over 400 drawings, was exhibited at the Third Eye Centre, Glasgow, from where it toured, and in 1986 at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh, where it entered the permanent collection.

The title for this talk “Always Boats and Men “is taken from the poem of that name by the Campbelltown poet Angus Martin who published The Ring Net Fishermen in 1981.
