Tuesday 1st October 2019 - The Arts Society – Special Interest day, 10:30am – 3:00pm. Ashtead Peace Memorial Hall.
James Russell: Enigmatic Art: Famous Paintings that keep us guessing. From Leonardo’s Mona Lisa to Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks, we love paintings with an element of mystery. Are there particular techniques that artists use to achieve them? And what do these paintings tell us about our world – and ourselves?  The day consists of 3 lectures, with coffee and biscuits served between the first and second. The third lecture follows a light lunch served between 1 and 2pm, this to include a glass of wine or soft drink. Doors open at 10:00am Cost: £28.  Visit our website, or for more information contact our Membership Secretary, Pat Anderson, on 01372 275605 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
