Interview with Isabel Hitchman

Rebecca interviewed Isabel Hitchman today - Isabel worked at the Arts Council of Wales during the 1970s and was involved in the founding of the Oriel Gallery.  Along with holding regular exhibitions, Oriel was also a book shop and, on occasion, provided a space for performance.  This photo shows a performance by former Cardiff School of Art and Design students Marty St James and Anne Wilson, called 'Perfect Moments'. 

We would like to thank Isabel for her hospitality and her time, and for helping with our research.
