Lectures are in the Play House: 10.45 for morning members: 13.30 for afternoon members.
Sadly our planned lecturer, Peter Warwick, has passed away after a long illness. However we are delighted that Alexandra Epps was able to replace him at very short notice. You will remember her fantastic lecture ‘Good as Gold’ at The Arts Society Golden Jubilee last year.

Art of the River by Alexandra Epps
The River Thames has inspired artists for over three hundred years and continues to do so today. Discover a selection of artists from the historical to the contemporary and experience their fascinating views of the river and interpretations of its eventful history.
The raffle book this month is ‘London in Paint’.
This is an intriguing book of paintings from the late 15th century to the present day – some you all know but many unfamiliar. It offers a wonderful opportunity to guess who and where the artist was painting or perhaps to photograph the same view now!
Alexandra has a B.A. from Saint Martin’s School of Art and an M.A. from The London College of Printing. She is an official guide and lecturer at various institutions including The Tate Modern, Tate Britain and Guildhall Art Gallery. She is also a qualified guide to the City of London and offers walks and lectures about many aspects of the arts for societies, corporations and individuals.
