A Tale of Two Barbaras - Catherine Wallace

Event date: 3/9/2020 Export event

In this lecture, we look at the work of two female sculptors who lived in Cornwall, the UK for most of their lives. Barbara Hepworth (1903–1975) became a leading light in the modernist movement in British art. Barbara Tribe (1913 – 2000) came from Australia and was a talented sculptor. She returned to Australia on many occasions in later life. We take a fascinating in-depth look at the similarities and differences in the work of these two pioneering female artists of the 20th Century.

Catherine holds a degree in Fine Art from Canterbury College of Art and a Masters from St Andrews. She was a curator of Falmouth Art Gallery from 1993 through to 2000. She has been a freelance exhibition organiser, author and lecturer since then and has organised numerous art and sculpture exhibitions.
