Successful Speaking Engagement and Personal Appearance!

Today, Hannah Frank, venerable 96 year old Glasgow artist and sculptor, and the last living link with the Glasgow Mackintosh and Arts and Crafts era, made a personal appearance at a talk which her niece Fiona Frank was giving at Newton Mearns 'Probus' speakers' club, about her life and work. She arrived, on the arm of local Probus member and cousin Mickey Green, five minutes into Fiona's talk. And as one, the 60 members present rose to their feet and gave her a standing ovation.

The talk was a great success and many of those in the audience purchased copies of 'Hannah Frank, A Glasgow Artist - Drawings and Sculpture' - which Hannah signed and dedicated for them individually.

Fiona accompanied her talk with many examples of Hannah's work - drawings, sculptures, sketches, and copies of Hannah's personal albums and diaries. She is now available to talk to speakers clubs anywhere in the UK about Hannah Frank's life and work, and about the story of the latest edition of 'Hannah Frank; A Glasgow Artist - Drawings and Sculpture' - but unfortunately can't guarantee a personal appearance by the artist every time!
