Gallery Talk with Anna Gillespie
Friday 30 November, 12.30 - 13.30
Anna Gillespie first exhibited at the gallery with Graham Bannister and Helen Nue last year as part of the Four Seasons Exhibition.

Prisoners of war from Russia and Spain, amongst other countries, were drafted in as slave labour to work on the construction of what the Nazis called “anti-tank walls”; Panzermauren in German, abbreviated to PzM in their files.
