This event has already passed

She's best-known for her music with The Pretenders, but Chrissie Hynde has recently moved into painting and that's what this talk is all about: she'll be discussing her first big body of work and how it compares to her rock 'n' roll career.

The talk also coincides with the release of a new illustrated book called Adding The Blue, which shows her abstract paintings and still-life studies.

Note: This event will take place in the Benjamin West Lecture Theatre.

Craig’s review of Royal Academy of Arts – “You might find this hard to believe if you've read a few of my galley reviews, but I did actually go to art school once. And I really do mean once (I quit on the very first day). After looking around the induction hall I quickly realised that I wasn't cut out to be an art student because you need to smoke dope, have a silly hat or a tattoo or a silver stud in your nos… continued”

Craig’s review of Saatchi Gallery You don't want to listen to me when it comes to art because I haven't got a clue what I'm talking about (hey, at least I'm honest!). But I do know what minimalism is, and the Saatchi Gallery is a minimalist gallery of modern art. That is how I would describe it, because ther… continued
Craig’s review of Tate Modern I promised myself that I would come to the Tate Modern with an open mind, but I know I'm going to laugh at the modern art. It's so bad, it's good. So you might want to take this review with a pinch of salt if you're an art lover. I do actually quite like art, believe it or… continued

The first two rooms I went in reminded me of Buckingham Palace. The walls are all velvet reds and warm golds and full of huge oil portraits ten feet across. The antique furni… continued
Craig’s review of Queen's Gallery The Queen certainly does have a lot of nice knick-knacks. She's got so many of them, in fact, that she's she's had to open up a whole extra art gallery next-door to Buckingham Palace.
