The Art Society Talks

Lars Tharp (Antiques Road Show presenter): The gate of Heroes: On the China Trail

Our next illustrated talk will be held at the Garrison Library, a wonderful venue for our artistic and informative Society.

The title of our next talk is THE DRAGONS CLAW, the signs and meaning in Chinese art.

Commences at 7.30 pm, please join us for a glass of wine provided by The Cellar from 6.30 pm Guests welcome £12.00 at the door Art students come free.

A fascinating talk given by Lars Tharp, who is a regular lecturer and broadcaster and leads occasional tours to China.

In Chinese art nothing is what it appears to be: five bats are not just bats;bamboo not just bamboo;a peach not merely a peach,nor a vase just a vase. Chinese language allows the same word,or rather,sound, to several possible meanings,giving rise to verbal-visual puns which elude the non-Chinese speaker.

Of China’s many symbols, the most potent is The Dragon.

Find out more on this fascinating subject by coming to our illustrated talk.

This talk is sponsored by Sovereign Trust (Gibraltar) Limited

 commences at 7.30 pm, please join us for a glass of wine provided by The Cellar from 6.30 pm Guests welcome £12.00 at the door Art students come free.

There’s more to the world of street art than Banksy.

The Art Society Talks

Nicola Moorby: Turner vs Constable: The Great British Paint-Off

At the basement of the O’Callaghan Elliot Hotel, Governor's Parade. 

We gather for registration and welcome drink at 6:30pm and the talk starts at 7:30pm sharp. 

 This is the story of the epic rivalry between the two giants of British art, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable. As unlike in background and temperament as their paintings were in style, these two creative geniuses transformed the art of landscape. This lecture sets them head-to-head and examines their differences, their similarities, their battles and their shared triumphs. But who will ultimately be crowned star painter? As well as giving an overview of Turner and Constable, the lecture provides an enjoyable overview of the British art world during the nineteenth century.
