Jock McFadyen RA is one of the UK’s leading painters. His work responds to a wide range of sources, from inner city life to industrial landscapes.

A visit to Orkney in the 1990s, signalled a shift in the artist’s work to include rural landscapes reflecting his travels in Orkney, around the UK and beyond.

Rowan Moore is a writer and architecture critic for The Observer and has recently completed a book on Jock McFadyen’s work.

Join us at the Pier Arts Centre to hear Rowan and Jock talk about painting, landscapes, architecture and much more.

Admission is free but booking is essential. To reserve a place contact the Pier Arts Centre on 01856 850209

artists and architects. With support from Art Fund, this far-reaching programme will celebrate Royal Academicians, past and present, foregrounding the impact they have had throughout the UK.
