Extraordinary artist to be celebrated at literary festival
The eighth Literary Leicester festival is to celebrate the ‘extraordinary contribution to British art’ of a Leicester artist and writer at an event discussing the life and work of Leicester artist and writer Rigby Graham.
The event takes place in the David Wilson Library Seminar Room on Saturday 14 November, 2-3pm. A display of Rigby Graham’s work will be open from 1pm.
Mike Goldmark, owner of the Goldmark Gallery, Uppingham, who will be giving the talk, said: “Graham was multi-talented; teacher, writer, painter in oils and watercolours, printmaker, a master of technique whether working on etchings, lithographs, linocuts or the wood cuts where he pushed the boundaries as never before. He also designed the most amazing stained glass windows."
Now in its eighth year, the Literary Leicester festival brings together a wealth of award-winning and renowned writers from many different fields and runs until 14 November.
