We were extremely honoured for our magazines to be part of an event in London called Wanderlust, which was part of the Dulwich Picture Gallery’s Pavilion Lates series. The event was tied in with Sargent: The Watercolours exhibition – which focuses heavily on Sargent’s travels in Europe and North Africa.
Sargent’s travels were brought to life through Art Macabre’s immersive drawing salons, where costumed models evoked Sargent’s international travels with theatricality and curiosity. Award-winning storyteller Giles Abbott also roamed the Gallery gardens telling tales of adventure and explorations. Giles used his rich and poetic voice to make pictures in the audience’s minds inspired by the watercolours of John Singer Sargent – where Sargent uses a brush, Giles used stories! Giles is the Storyteller in Residence at the Last Tuesday Society, has toured internationally and his work is regularly featured on TV and radio.
