Maggi Hambling in conversation
As anyone who knows Maggi will come to expect, we were kept on our toes with her visit to Browsers Bookshop this evening.
The acclaimed artist and sculptor was joining us to introduce 'A Suffolk Eye', a beautifully produced celebration of the work of Harry Hambling, Maggi's father.
Harry started painting when he retired from his job at the bank in Hadleigh, and his pictures are stunning.
"Our jaded eyes are jolted into action by the purity of his vision," says Maggi.
Tickets were £22 to include a copy of the book, signed by Maggi. Tickets without the book were £12.
