The Rotary Club of Tywyn were privileged to host a presentation by Annie Lake, a talented local artist, entitled ‘Art through the ages, A personal view’ on Thursday 07 April 2016 at one of the club weekly meetings.
Annie described her view of art through the ages starting with prehistoric cave paintings through Aboriginal art to the more modern artists of today. Throughout art history the same theme occurs with the artists leaving a small part of their soul by either a handprint on a wall or representations of the human form common in Aboriginal cave painting. This desire of the artist to leave part of themselves for posterity was graphically illustrated by examples of painting through history.
Annie then demonstrated how her own work had developed over the years by showing several interesting examples of her early paintings to her more recent work.
As is the custom with guest speakers at Club meetings, President Stephanie Purcell presented Annie with a cheque for £100 that Annie will kindly donate to Tŷ Gobaith, the Children’s Hospice.
