Members letter October 2022

Dear Member

We have added some new events to our 2022/23 programme which we hope you will enjoy:

We also still have some places available for the following courses: The Splendour of Renaissance Venice, Whistler, Sickert and the avant-garde, Carolingian Art and the Carolingian Renovatio and Silk Roads and the Centre of the world.

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.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting this year will be held on Monday 21 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 a lecture. It will be given by Dr Naomi Speakman and will be entitled ‘Rich treasures of ivory carvings’: collecting, studying and exhibiting medieval ivories in nineteenth-century Britain. The lecture will be followed by a glass of wine. Booking is required – a joint ticket will be issued for the AGM and lecture.

If you are looking for inspiration for exhibitions showing in London there is a list of current and upcoming major exhibitions in London on our website which you will find in the What’s On dropdown box.

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,, or write to us via our correspondence address: c/o Tudor Cottage, Stoke Prior, Leominster, Herefordshire HR6 0LG.

Best wishes.
