Midwinter news

The Hannah Frank project moves inexorably forward, and my aunt is very happy that she is definitely going to be 'leaving footsteps on the sands of time'!

Lots of projects are on the go, not least, a wonderful new 'webshop' that has been set up linked to the main Hannah Frank site http://www.hannahfrank.org.uk Fiona Fahlin from Redpebble Web Solutions has created a great new SHOP where Hannah Frank fans can send a free Hannah Frank e-card as well as buy prints and cards, and order sculpture recasts.

I've done talks at Glasgow Limmud (a Jewish cultural festival) and at Inverness Museum and Art Gallery, to start a new show at the Riverside Gallery in Inverness. And what a beautiful city it was, if I may say so.

Now all is gearing up for the Hannah Frank major retrospective exhibition at the Royal Glasgow Institute Kelly Gallery in Glasgow, from 28th Jan to 11th Feb. I have a series of speakers booked - Peter Trowles, Mackintosh curator at the Glasgow School of Art, on 'Women at the Glasgow School of Art, from Jessie King to Hannah Frank' - Lesley Richmond from Glasgow University Archives putting Hannah Frank in context at Glasgow Uni in the 1920s: and Ann Marie Foster, a practising artist and teacher who'll be running sketching workshops for adults and children.

Ann Marie and I are also setting up a series of Hannah Frank Multi-Media Art Days for schools and are interested to hear from anyone who'd like one!

Please email me if you'd like to go on the mailing list to receive a monthly Hannah Frank newsletter.
