occasional illustrated talks on paintings painters and exhibitions
The Friday Lectures have become a popular feature in the Programme of courses and
events. Usually one or two illustrated talks are offered each term. The subject
centres on the work of an artist or a particular period of art which can sometimes
be at the request of a member of the group but more usually coincides with a major
London exhibition. Feedback indicates a fuller understanding and enjoyment of an
exhibition is gained after attending one of these talks.
Although a group of regular attendees has grown up around The Friday Lecture it is
by no means exclusive and anyone may join in - a warm welcome awaits.
The speaker, Jean Hammond has been involved in art education and lecturing in Art
History for over 40 years, and as a practicing artist brings to these talks an interesting
and different approach. Her talks are well researched and informative engaging her
audience with infectious enthusiasm for paintings and textiles, with a little humour
thrown in for good measure.
