Lunchtime talk: Aberdeen Women of Gallery 14 by Dr Alison T McCall
Dr McCall explores the Watt collection: correspondence to and from Aberdeen suffragette Caroline Philips, a selection of which are displayed in Gallery 14: Art of Empowerment. Our speaker considers Caroline Phillips within the wider context of women in Aberdeen in the early 20th century, glimpses of whose lives can be seen in Aberdeen Art Gallery.
