*PLEASE NOTE: Toyah will not be in attendance or introducing this screening as listed on some websites*
Join PJ Crook and Friends in Bristol for a unique celebration of the life and works of the artist Rolinda Sharples on 19 February 2018.
Rolinda Sharples (1793-1838) was born in Bath and lived most of her life in Bristol. She exhibited at the Royal Academy and at the Society of British Artists, where she became an honorary member. Her painting of The Cloak-Room at the Clifton Assembly Rooms, 1817 (see below) has become one of the most iconic images of the Regency period.
In 1996, Toyah Willcox (as Rolinda Sharples) and PJ Crook (as herself) made a short film for TV entitled Rolinda Sharples: Painted Out of History. For this special screening of the film, we will be joined by PJ and also by the film’s director (Lee Cox) and screen-writer/animator (Hazel Gower), who will introduce it.
