The Arts Society Lymington
We are The Arts Society Lymington - a new name. We welcome established and new members and visitors to our evening meetings, held on the second Wednesday of each month from September to June.
The New Name.
For years we were called The Lymington Decorative and Fine Arts Society, and we were members of The National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies - NADFAS.
NADFAS has changed its name to The Arts Society. We have changed our name as well, in order to continue using the national body's help and information. This means that we are able to request expert experienced lecturers to visit us and talk about their particular specialities accompanying their talks with splendid illustrative presentations.
The national association ensures that all their accredited speakers are well qualified and good at delivering interesting and stimulating talks to their audiences. The topics from which we choose our lectures cover all the arts, from Old Masters to modern jewellery, beautiful old buildings to modern sculpture. We make a selection of ten different subjects each season covering a wide spectrum of interest in the arts fields with a question and answer session with the speaker at the end of the hours talk.
Our next meeting will be on 11th October at 7.00 for 7.30 pm. Elizabeth Gowing will take us to Kosovo and explore the beautiful silverwork which has been produced there for generations.
We began our new season by celebrating our 40th Birthday. A most impressive cake was cut by Claudette, one of our founder members, and our Chairman, David.
