AS part of Brantwood’s Captain Scott centenary celebrations, landscape artist Frances Hatch will be heading to the Coniston gallery to talk about her collection, Drawn to Antarctica: 2005 to 2012.

The works are on display at the gallery, bringing together notes from sketchbooks, photographic records, paintings and drawings from her visits to Antarctica, to commemorate 100 years since the death of Captain Scott on an ill-fated expedition there. Her thoughts, insights and discoveries are distilled in the pages of Drawn to Antarctica, her book which accompanies this show.

On Saturday, she will be discussing her inspirations and the challenges of working in such a hostile environment.

She says: “One of my aspirations was to glimpse Antarctica – that sublimely beautiful and vast wilderness which had been hovering at the edge of my consciousness for as long as I can remember.

“It appeared to me to be the crucible containing the ingredients of all that I have ever wanted to explore as an artist.”

The talk starts at 7pm and pre-booking is recommended. Reservations can be made by phoning the venue.
