The change of date from this coming weekend to mid November is because the university was taken by surprise by the success of the "RAF 100" exhibition and agreed to extend it till Armistice Day 11th November.  It means we've had more time to plan and organise a fantastic programme of arts and creative writing workshops and talks!

 

Fiona has handed this blog over to one of our interns, Erin Stewart, to tell you more about what's going on. Erin writes:

Plans are well under way for the 110th Birthday Exhibition for beloved Glasgow Jewish artist Hannah Frank, celebrating her life, legacy and artistic talents. Alongside Fiona and me, a team of talented young University of Glasgow students – Geanina, Lisa, Sylvie, Lisa and Jessica - are planning to run talks, events, tailored workshops, art activities and personalised tours throughout the life of the exhibition.  All studying artistic subjects, the student volunteers bring a unique range of creative talents and curatorial skills to the team, and Fiona has encouraged each of them to engage with their specific interests and maximise their potential.  Here's the gorgeous poster that Geanina designed for the exhibition! 

Please get back to us if you can display a poster for us. You can download one from our website  here or we can post you some - let us know if you'd prefer A4 or A3!
Our team of volunteers have been liaising with schools, youth groups, arts groups, disabled groups, refugee groups and others, planning creative writing and creative arts workshops both at the exhibition and on the groups' premises.  They may still be able to fit your group in for a special tour and tailor-made arts activity - get in touch!   Above, they are having a Skype meeting with Ed Harper, a blind farmer in Cape Clear island, West Cork, talking about how to make art 
accessible to blind people (we have some metal printing plates of many of Hannah Frank's images which give an idea of the fine sweeping lines of the drawings - and of course the sculptures are great for touching!
Here's the team at a meeting at the university chaplaincy office beginning the planning process.   This coming week we'll be distributing posters, designing special Hannah Frank postcards to leave round the city, and finishing off the plans for the programme of free tours, talks and creative workshops that will be running throughout the exhibition.   
We should be able to announce the full programme of talks and workshops next week - but to give you a taster, there'll be a talk by Sarah Thomas, who made the film 'Hannah Frank, The Spark Divine'; a talk by Harvey Kaplan, chair of the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre, and a talk about the Lost Wax process of sculpture casting.   We hope to have some rubber moulds and plaster casts on show at the exhibtiion as well as the 'finished product' bronze sculptures - to show the whole process of producing a bronze.  And there'll be guided visits to the Scottish Jewish Archives Centre to get up close and personal with Hannah Frank's extensive collection of letters, scrapbooks, diaries and memorabilia.   And more! 
Go to the Hannah Frank website www.hannahfrank.org.uk for two for the price of one and reduced price signed prints - all print sales help to fund the work of bringing this artist to public attention!
We hope to upload the full calendar of talks and workshops on Friday 19th October on the front page of the Hannah Frank website  and will also send it out to our mailing list and post it on our facebook pages.  So please follow us on facebook and twitter for the latest info - and there'll be some COMPETITIONS too! 
 

 Looking forward to seeing you at Glasgow University Chapel between 19 November and 6 February!  (or at the launch on Sunday 18 Nov)

best wishes
