Due to things outside of our control we've replaced Jane Angelini talk 'Symphonies in Colour - The Mosaics of Ravenna' with a very timely lecture with Julian Halsbyon Modigliani and Bohemian Paris 1906-1920. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Julian Halsby studied History of Art at Cambridge and was formerly Senior Lecturer at Croydon College of Art. He interviews artists for the Artist Magazine and is a member of the International Association of Art Critics and The Critics Circle. As a practising artist he was elected to The Royal Society of British Artists in 1994 and was appointed Keeper in 2010.
His publications include 'Venice-The Artist's Vision' (1990,1995), 'The Art of Diana Armfield' (1995), 'Dictionary of Scottish Painters' (1990, 198, 2001), 'A Hand to Obey the Demons's Eye' (2000), 'Scottish Watercolours 1740 - 1940' (1986, 1991) and 'A Private view - David Wolfers and the New Grafton Gallery' (2002).
Meetings last for about an hour, followed by tea and biscuits, and an opportunity to chat and get to know other members. The usual guest fee is a voluntary donation of £5 for each lecture, but this event is FREE. However, we do have a donation point for our Young Arts Fund, supporting our work with young people across South-East London and Kent.
Attendees may also sign up for society visits and study courses, including the Art and Design of Scandinavia (26 January, and 2 and 9 February 2018).
The Crofton Halls are in Crofton Road, Orpington, BR6 8PR. Plenty of buses pass nearby, and Orpington station is just a very short walk away. There's also limited parking available.
