Kate, a painting teacher at the Slade, (and originally from Ipswich) famously won a commission to paint Wivenhoe Park in Colchester on the 200th Anniversary of Constable’s famous painting of the same subject. She judged last year’s Anna Airy Award, and gave an excellent resume of the development of her work at the public seminar held by the Society at its 2015 exhibition “Open Choice” at the Art School Gallery. A chance for us all to hear and see this fascinating development.

All talks take place at The Co-op Education Centre, 11 Fore Street, IP4 1JW. 7.30pm

Talks are open to all.  Members and Friends free,  Non-members £2.50


Glynn will be familiar to all of us for his seemingly ubiquitous and very charming prints – featuring his all-round perspectives and very fine execution.

Stone sculptor and conservator, Antonia was short-listed for the ACE National Award for ecclesiastical
art- work in 2015 for her creation of a reredos at
St George's Church, Great Bromley.

She will take us through the process of commission, design, making and installation of this beautiful piece.

Paul will be speaking on ‘William Kent - Designing Georgian Britain’. This less-than-household name is the hidden hand behind much of the “look” of architecture, landscape design and decoration of the period, and chief importer of the Palladian style to these shores.
