Visiting speaker from National Museum Wales enhances talk with Brighton images.
17 Nov 2011
Rachel Conroy, Assistant Curator of Applied Art at the National Museum Wales, will be speaking on twentieth century ceramics from the museum’s collection at a forthcoming event at the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool. In preparing her talk she was delighted to discover a selection of relevant images of tableware among our Design Council images on the VADS website, and these will now be incorporated in the presentation. The talk, entitled ‘Making “Modern”’, has been organised by the Northern Ceramic Society and is open to all. It will take place at 11.30am on the 26 November. Reference copies of the Archives’ images will be retained in the files of the Museum to provide additional contextual information about their holdings.
