ART HISTORICAL LONDON : Playful illusions: trompe l'oeil

All art is illusionistic by nature. Most artists use illusionary techniques to depict reality, but some use illusions to depict the illusionary nature of art and perception. We as the viewers are sometimes, but not always, aware of what we are looking at is real, a depiction of the real, a reflection of the real, a symbolical version of the real or if we ourselves are the illussion!

This series of lectures will explore the perception of form and meaning through a number of works of art, chosing a different theme each week.

  1. 6/6: Playful illusions: mirrors in art (NB tying in with the upcoming exhibition: Reflections: Van Eyck and the Pre-Raphaelites, at the National Gallery in October 2017)
  2. 13/6: Playful illusions: dressing up
  3. 20/6: Playful illusions: picturing the dead
  4. 27/6:Playful illusions: trompe l'oeil
  5. 4/7: Playful illusions:participatory art

ART HISTORICAL LONDON : Back to the Beginnings: The Italian Renaissance! - Religious material culture

Essential Summer prep for any one expecting to include culture in their travels! With this 4 week course we take it back to where it all started: The Italian Renaissance!

One of the most productive, innovative, influential and thought-provoking periods in the history of Western art, this period has shaped how we feel about art and all later generations of artists. It's style has dominated the teaching of artists for centuries, and modernity only truly started once we shed the achievements of the Renaissance Masters.

  1. 9/6/17: Florence and a re-birth of the arts
  2. 16/6/17: Power, Patronage and Ideology
  3. 23/6/17: Artists, materials and processes
  4. 30/6/17: Religious material culture

Normansfield Theatre : John Etheridge and Vimala Rowe

Legendary guitarist John Etheridge has had substantial relationships during his 45-year career with some of the most famous names of 20th century music including Stephane Grappelli, Nigel Kennedy, John Williams, Yehudi Menuhin and Soft Machine. Tonight he joins forces with sensational vocal star Vimala Rowe, who has been gaining plaudits wherever she goes.

Together, John Etheridge and Vimala Rowe weave a magical spell, effortlessly travelling musically from India to Africa, Middle East and the USA. There will also be solos from John, taken from his celebrated show that he has performed for 10 years all over Europe. This is a unique pairing that satisfied on so many levels. Not to be missed!

How to get there

  • By train: The nearest train station is Hampton Wick - 7 minutes walk away. It connects easily with Waterloo, Vauxhall, Clapham Junction, Wimbledon and Richmond. Turn right out the station and then follow directions below as if driving from Kingston. Langdon Park is off Kingston Road, opposite Wick Road. We are in the big building on the right once you have turned into Langdon Park.
  • By bus: The 281 stops outside the building, travelling from Tolworth and Kingston in one direction, and Teddington and Twickenham in the other. The 285, which links Kingston and Heathrow airport, also stops outside.
  • By car: If you're driving from Kingston, drive past Hampton Wick station on the right and then take the first right after Normansfield Avenue. This isn't named on the map but is called "Langdon Park". Turn immediately right again and park in one of the spaces marked "L.D.C. Reserved Parking". Walk down the gravel path (edged with red brick) and you will come to a big red door on the left, which is the main entrance into the building. If you are approaching from the Twickenham/Richmond direction then take your first left after Holmesdale Road into Langdon Park and then carry on as above.
