Richard Demarco

Small and Secret Places

Widely recognised as one of the outstanding draughtsmen of his generation, Richard Demarco produced a wonderful series of drawings of some of the historic closes of Cupar and related them to the closes of the Old Town in Edinburgh and to similar features in his family home town of Picinisco, south of Rome. In so doing he “drew attention” to Cupar’s closes as they are today, asking us to cherish them with the same love and attention that the capital has bestowed on its own ‘small and secret places’. In addition to his well-received exhibition, Richard Demarco also presented “An Evening With Richard Demarco” at which included his own illustrated talk, and an audience with storyteller and balladeer, Arthur Watson.
