Date(s) - 16th Nov 2020


Gloucestershire has an unusual concentration of war memorials by Arts and Crafts Movement designers, ranging from memorial crosses, stained glass windows and more practical memorials like water troughs.  Discover the stories, the trials and the tribulations of commemorating the war dead with works by designers such as Ernest Gimson, Sidney Barnsley, F L Griggs and Alexander Fisher.

Kirsty Hartsiotis is Producer of Decorative and Fine Art at The Wilson, where she has worked for the past twelve years, working mainly with the Designated Arts and Crafts Movement collection.  She was the curator of the Ernest Gimson exhibition in late 2019.  She became fascinated by the memorials of Gloucestershire when researching the 2018 Open Archive display and has been travelling the county recording the monuments and discovering their stories.

Venue: online            Time: 10:30am           Cost: £5.
