Members Letter October 2021
We have added some new events to our 2021-2022 programme which we hope you will enjoy:
- Storing Sacred Treasures: the medieval Wunderkammer, our next lecture on 23 November delivered by Dr Lesley Milner. This lecture will follow the Society’s AGM
- Study Visit to Winchester Cathedral on 25 November led by John McNeill. Please note the date has changed from that advertised in the October e-News Bulletin
- Gustave Caillebotte: Painter of Modern Life, an online lecture on 6 December led by Patrick Bade
- Twentieth-Century American Photography: a thematic history, a study day on 27 January 2022 led by Ben Street
The Society has also arranged a study tour in conjunction with Art Pursuits/Arena Travel, exclusive to Society members: LUCCA The Glorious Cities of Northern Tuscany: Lucca, Pistoia, Prato and Pisa taking place from 7-12 June 2022, led by Dr Geoffrey Nuttall. This tour was offered initially to members who attended Geoff’s course Lucca and the Art of Luxury and a few remaining places are now offered to the general membership. Details are available online.
The Society’s Annual General Meeting this year will be held on Tuesday 23 November at The Art Workers’ Guild at 5pm, and you will find all the relevant papers, including nomination forms, online. The meeting will be followed at 6pm by the lecture mentioned above. The need for social distancing means that it is necessary to restrict numbers and therefore booking is be required. We are issuing a combined ticket for the AGM and lecture.
We still have some places available for the following events in the autumn term:
- Paula Rego, a study day on 9 November led by Dr Elena Crippa
- Art for Salvation: The Friars and their Patronage in Central Italy c.1230-1450, a five-week course starting on 16 November led by Dr John Renner
You can find details of all the above on our website. 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. Booking for the study tour should be made via the tour operator.
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.
