Earlier meetings
Thursday October 1 st: Political Art by: Rosalind Miranda
Although most propaganda is of a political nature, this presentation shows how independent artists have tried and succeeded to put across their message that reflects how they see their own present and past times. The works discussed are from the 19th through the 21st century. This lecture will help in understanding what the “Political Artist” is trying to convey.
Thursday February 6th: Charles Rennie Macintosh - more than just a tea room by: Stella Lyons
-iDid you know that when Charles Rennie Mackintosh died his entire estate was valued at just £88? Glaswegian-born Mackintosh, a designer, architect and artist, was the foremost Celtic exponent of Art Nouveau, and had a considerable influence on European art. But he is an even more enigmatic figure today than when he was alive. Both Mackintosh's, and his wife Margaret Macdonald’s work has a distinctive character, one that captures the transition between the Victorian era and the Modern age. This talk will consider both Charles and Margaret's life, work and legacy.
