Susie Leiper Artist's Talk

Susie Leiper will be giving a talk about her exhibition One Never Quite Knows the Mountain... on Saturday 15 July, 12 noon. The talk will be an opportunity to find out more about the roots of Leiper's fascination with Nan Shepherd's lyrical testament to the Cairngorms, The Living Mountain. Responding to The Living Mountain is not a new venture for Leiper. Just as Nan Shepherd returned over and over to the Cairngorms, so Leiper is constantly impelled to revisit her iconic text. Serendipity recently confirmed some deep connection between Nan and Leiper: they are paired on the new RBS polymer fiver (Nan is the face of the note and Leiper’s secretary hand calligraphy is on the reverse).

To attend, please rsvp by emailing or by phoning 0131 557 1020. 

Please note that this is an informal talk and seating will be limited.
