On Tuesday 13 September Janet Axten is presenting  ‘In Search of Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’ at the St Ives Art Club, West Quay, St Ives, starting at 1 PM.


Using excerpts from Wilhelmina Barns-Graham’s letters and diaries from the period, this talk focuses on WBG’s early days in St Ives after getting off the train there in March 1940; whom she met, where she went, and how she spent her time.


It is part of the official St Ives Festival programme. Tickets on the door are £5.50.
