Friday Talk with Jonathan Gibbs ‘The Minds Eye 2: Poetry & Place’

This Fridays professional practice talk will be given by the one and only illustrator, print maker and inspiring ECA Programme Director, Jonathan Gibbs. We look forward to hearing about the challenges and successes of his established career, in particular new works produced during his recent sabbatical.

Educated at the Central School of Art and the Slade, Jonathan works in wood engraving, drawing and painting. Alongside teaching in the Illustration Department, he regularly exhibits in Edinburgh and London.

Students and staff enjoyed a selection of Jonathan’s prints earlier in the week at the opening of his latest exhibition in the Edinburgh College of Art Sculpture Court. On the evening Jonathan extended the theme of rivers from his work to the entertainment, playing a selection of river themed music on the guitar, accompanied by his son Thomas Gibbs on the clarinet.

We look forward learning the journey behind his latest work this Friday.
