Cardwell McClure to give a talk on his uncle
Cardwell McClure to give a talk on his uncle

Our Chairman Cardwell McClure has-been invited by the directors of Sloan''s House, Loughgall, County Armagh to give a talk on the life of his uncle, William Scott CBE RA who lived for a short time in Enniskillen, and show the film on Scott''s life - ''Every Picture Tells A Story'', produced by his cousin, James Scott.

William Scott had a link to Portadown/Orange Order. To find out more about the linkeage I invite you to attend this event. The presentation and film would be of interest to those school children in the County taking A or GCSE levels in art this year therefore I would encourage them to attend.

William Scott is now recognised as one of the great British/Ulster artists of the 20th century.

On display will be many books written on the artist, details of his works and where they can be seen in Ireland with images of the paintings and an Orange Order banner painted by William and his father, my grandfather in 1927. The banner would be unique and rare because the hand of such a great artist is upon it. It is signed Scott Enniskillen.

This event is not to be missed.
