The Chaplins and the arts

According to Gideon Strauss, Jon Chaplin and his wife Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin are moving back to the UK. Jon is to be the director of the Institute for Christian Ethics at Tyndale House.

You can hear a conversation with Adrienne on the place and responsibilities of Christian artists in their communities here. See also here.

Speaking (or rather writing) about the arts, Geoff Hall is leading a day conference on Art Depreciation:

Edvard Munch got stressed about it; Kandinsky denied its value and Paul Klee found it too horrific to paint - this dayschool explores why so many artists and critics have found the project of making art in and about the twentieth century a traumatic experience.
Dayschool from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday 17 June 2006 at Department of History of Art, 43 Woodland Road, Bristol.
