Letter to Members, October 2018

Dear Member

We have added some new events to our 2018-19 programme which we hope you will enjoy:

We still have places available for The Art World Now, a five-week course commencing on 5th March led by Anna Moszynska.

You can find details of all the above on our website by clicking on the above links. 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.

A further study tour is being organised to coincide with a series of Bauhaus anniversary events beginning in 2019. An itinerary is currently being developed to create a short but unique two-centre study tour led by Tom Abbott to explore the multiple aspects of Bauhaus. Visits are likely to include Weimar, Dessau, Halle and Leipzig. The tour dates will be 12th-16th September 2019. A full itinerary will be published in the near future. In the meantime, please contact the Tour Organiser, Michael Pearson to register your interest. You can either write to him at the London Art History Society, c/o Tudor Cottage, Stoke Prior, Leominster, Herefordshire, HR6 0LG, or call 0843 289 4663 and leave a message.

The Society’s Annual General Meeting this year will be held on Tuesday 20th November at The Art Workers’ Guild at 4.30pm, and you will find all the relevant papers, including nomination forms, online here. The meeting will be followed at 6pm by The Maria Shirley Lecture, At either end of the seventeenth-century Golden Age: the Dutch painters Clara Peeters and Adriaen Coorte, given by Clare Ford-Wille.

I hope that you are enjoying our 2018-19 programme of events. We are always interested to hear any comments or suggestions about the Society and its work, so please email the Secretary, secretary@londonarthistorysociety.org.uk, or write to us via our correspondence address: c/o Tudor Cottage, Stoke Prior, Leominster, Herefordshire HR6 0LG.

Best wishes.
