One of Britain’s most distinguished landscape painters will give an inaugural lecture at the University next month.
Alan Cotton is an honorary Professor of Art at the University. He has been represented internationally by Messum’s Fine Art in Cork Street, London for the past 20 years, where his annual exhibitions have frequently sold out.
In his inaugural lecture, A Sense of Place, he will present stories about people and places from his travels, and, with illustrations of his work, show how his paintings are produced.
The lecture is being organised by the University’s Institute for Contemporary Interdisciplinary Arts (ICIA).Alan is one of the UK’s most distinctive landscape painters, travelling widely to find subjects for his work.
His depictions of the coastline of North Devon, around Hartland, have received much critical acclaim, with many appearing in public collections.
In 2005 he accompanied the Prince of Wales to Sri Lanka, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji as Tour Artist, and in May 2011 was Expedition Artist to Everest with the explorer David Hempleman-Adams.
The inaugural lecture will be held in the East Building lecture theatre at 6pm on 2 November.
