Forthcoming Events -

Friday, 16 February 2018 - Doncaster Art Lecture 10.30am - Doncaster Art Gallery, Chequer Road Doncaster DN1

We were due to visit The Dean Clough Art Gallery in Halifax on Wednesday 21 February but it is closed. Therefore we will be visiting the Doncaster Art Gallery on 16 February. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU PLANNING ON GOING TO DONCASTER and also if anyone is willing to car share from the Eversley Centre.

The Art History Lecture is by Rachel Holland-Hargreaves
Lectures start at 10.30 am and last for an hour and a half. Each lecture costs £5 to be paid at the museum reception and includes refreshments.

Friday 16th February – THE SPECTRUM OF WHITE

From the purity of lilies in Renaissance annunciation scenes, to the Impressionists’ belief that white was never pure white, which they illustrated in their paintings of snow, white tablecloths and dresses, we will look at the way that the colour white interacts and relates with other colours.

Sounds interesting!
