Sculptor, Nigel Talbot will discuss
‘Is it Art?’
Nigel Talbot was born in 1952 in Taunton, Somerset. Between 1970 and 1976 he studied sculpture at three British art colleges including Newport College of Art. Since 1978 he has had a studio in Wales. He trained as a teacher and has taught in schools in Wales, especially at Caldicot Comprehensive School. Nigel Talbot has created many public works of art, many in conjunction with school children. One you may be familiar with, is the art he created for the Trevithick Trail near Merthyr. You may remember that he gave us a stimulating and thought provoking lecture on 'Public Art' some time ago.
