Cathy Bell is an art historian and freelance journalist. She has also been a volunteer curator for the past 15 years and does her best to make art in all its forms available to the public.
Cathy lives in Livingston near Edinburgh. But she has long had a soft spot for our little corner of Catalonia. We met her in 2018, during her visit to our Interpretation Centre in Port-Vendres. She then decided to write an article about Mackintosh in Roussillon and ‘the Mackintosh Trail’. This was an opportunity to start exchanging. Since then, we have diversified and intensified our exchanges.
She follows and participates in our work with enthusiasm and has since written three other articles published in the Scottish art journal Artwork. She has become a benefactor member of our association and we thank her for her interest and help. Each of her articles is published in our blog. She recently told us that she really understood who Charles Rennie Mackintosh was when she visited our centres. A beautiful compliment!
A few months ago, she launched a website in partnership with her husband Gordon Weir, who is interested in science, mathematics and engineering. The aim is to make their work available to everyone: exhibition images and paintings, art photos, videos, articles, essays, fiction etc. Just browse!
