Forthcoming Arts Society Chiswick lecture, the final one of the year
The final lecture of this year in the Arts Society Chiswick series, is on the topic of ' Art Inspired By Wine' and will be given by John Ericson. The lecture will be held on Thursday 14th November, in the Polish Centre, King Street, Hammersmith at 8 pm (details below).
In this lively presentation to end the year John shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for wine and the contribution that ‘wine art’ makes to our colourful world. Wine can be a civilising influence upon us and it is made to be shared and enjoyed. As a consequence there are numerous wonderful paintings of wine being made and wine being drunk in celebration plus wicked cartoons and striking posters. In addition we shall examine wine labels from around the world which now display such style and creativity.
John Ericson was formerly a lecturer at the University of Bath where he was Director of Studies in the School of Education with responsibility for the professional development of teachers. He has worked extensively overseas as an educational consultant and this has given him the opportunity to give lectures and presentations at conferences all over the world.
In 2008 and again in 2011 he undertook extensive lecture tours of Australia and he has been a popular speaker on The Arts Society's circuit for a number of years.
Lectures start at 8pm. Bar opens at 7pm. Guests welcome - £10 on the door.
All lectures are held in the Malinova Room, Polish Centre, King Street, Hammersmith.
