We also still have some places available for Public Art in the City, a study walk on 21 November 2019 led by Elizabeth Singleton.
You can find details of all the above on our website or with this letter. All events can be booked online via our secure booking system, WebCollect. We would prefer you to use WebCollect if possible to book events, even if you prefer to send a cheque by post; it does make life easier and more cost-effective for the Society.
The Society’s Annual General Meeting this year will be held on Saturday 30 November at The Art Workers’ Guild at 2pm, and you will find all the relevant papers, including nomination forms, online here or enclosed with this letter. The meeting will be followed at 3pm by The Maria Shirley Lecture. It will be given by Michael Symes and will be entitled Art and the creation of the landscape garden at Painshill.
I hope that you are enjoying our current programme of events. We are always interested to hear any comments or suggestions about the Society and its work, so please email the Secretary, firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to us via our correspondence address: c/o Tudor Cottage, Stoke Prior, Leominster, Herefordshire HR6 0LG.
