An illustrated talk by Jackie Garner
Jackie Garner takes us back to the times of the ancients, with images from her latest trip to Egypt. Take a glimpse into the tombs and temples and discover the variety of art styles that adorned the resting places from the workers to the wealthy. What links a 3500 year old tomb painting to a modern pop song? How do we know that Sennefer was a wine buff? Find out during this captivating talk. Jackie was our Education Officer at Nature in Art and is now an established and popular artist, speaker, tutor, guide and author. Her paintings have been shown on BBC television and are held in collections as far afield as the Falkland Islands, Trinidad, Australia and the USA.
