Join us on Friday, January 26 for an artist talk with legendary rock photographer, Chalkie Davies. His interest in Classical Music and Painting has led to the creation of a highly illustrated lecture on the Art of Photography and its relationship with 15-16th Century Paintings.

His lecture will be presented as a musical Tableaux, Davies has spent many months photographing paintings that interest him and comparing them to his work, as well as creating short slide shows that give his view on photography, the influences on his photography and insights into how he worked with his clients, many of whom remain lifelong friends.
