About The Event

In this evening special to the Treadwell's audience, visiting expert Dr Amy Hale shares unpublished research on the occult / magical practices of British artist Ithell Colquhoun (1906-1988). Taking the form of a discussion between Dr Amy and her friend Christina Oakley Harrington, Amy dives into her times with druidry, trance states, sex magic, secret orders, clandestine rites and stone circles. At the soirée following, everyone has a chance to talk informally with Amy over a glass of wine. Her new book on Colquhoun's erotic art will be on sale, and she'll be glad to sign your copy. 

Dr Amy Hale is an Atlanta-based anthropologist and folklorist writing about esoteric history, art, culture, women and Cornwall in various combinations. Her new book is Sex Magic: Ithell Colquhoun's Diagrams of Love. She has also written the artist's biography Genius of the Fern Loved Gully. Other writings are on Medium site and her website.  Tickets to tonight's event are strictly limited.
