Friends of Hospitalfield Collections Visit with Joyce Cairns

11:00am-2:00pm, 25 April 2017

Joyce Cairns studied painting at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen between 1966 and 71 and came to Hospitalfield during this time in 1969. After going on to postgraduate study at the Royal College of Art and Goldsmiths for her Art Teacher’s Certificate Course she returned to Aberdeen and taught there until 2004.  Her work stems mainly from autobiographical sources including considerations of her father’s wartime experiences.

On 25 April, Friends of Hospitalfield will have the special opportunity to visit Joyce Cairns at her home to see highlights from her personal art collection. Joyce will discuss her approach and experience to collecting art and will offer the chance to see some of her personal collection highlights through the visit.

Friends of Hospitalfield will meet near Joyce’s studio at Douglas Terrace, Broughty Ferry at 11am. We will then have the opportunity to enjoy lunch in Broughty Ferry following the visit.
