Charles Mackie was educated in Edinburgh and his studio was located in Roseburn. His travels took him to France where he met Gaugin, Vuillard and Les Symbolistes. Hornel welcomed him to Kirkcudbright and he gave painting lessons to Laura Knight (you might remember our February 2018 lecture was about her) during his time in Staithes he worked in an impressive range of media, oils, watercolours, murals, woodblock prints, tooled leather and sculpture.

This lecture will give an overview of his life, work and contribution to Scottish and British Art.

Pat Clark is a retired head teacher with a passion for Charles Mackie, a neglected figure in Scottish Art.
