What's coming up at The Arts Society Cranleigh in June and July?

There is an exciting programme of talks from The Arts Society Cranleigh over the summer months.

On Wednesday 22nd June, the talk is LAND OF THE MONKEY GOD – THE ART AND ARCHITECTURE OF SRI LANKA, with Georgina Bexon

Georgina is an art historian specialising in South Asian art.

Shrines, stupas, cave temples, colonial grandeur and modernist architecture – a look at the history of this beautiful island through its intriguing art and culture.

This talk examines the fascinating story of Sri Lankan art and the original minds, talents and spirits that created this unique visual world.

On Wednesday 27th July, the talk is CEZANNE – THE (UNLIKELY) FATHER OF MODERN ART, with Jacky Klein.

Jacky is an art historian, publisher, writer and broadcaster, specialising in modern and contemporary art.

In this talk, we will be introduced to Cezanne through his work of the 1880s, 90s and early 1900s during which time he began a revolution in painting, creating what the art historian Ernst Gombrich called ‘a landslide in art’.

There is no meeting in August.

Non-members are welcome to join us at a talk as a guest. No commitment, but a donation is appreciated.
