History of Art talks – new to the Red Brick for 2018

‘The ‘gentler’ sex. Women artists from antiquity to the 21st century’.

A new series of monthly  art history talks by Joanna Cobb, Glastonbury based art historian, lecturer and  researcher, starting in January 2018.

Following a very successful year of lectures for Street and Glastonbury U3A in the Morland Room at the Red Brick Building,  Joanna is now offering this new series on women artists through the ages in the same lovely ground floor space.  Available on both Tuesday afternoons and Thursday evenings, these talks will include a full PowerPoint presentation, along with a range of teas, coffees and biscuits (gluten free available), and accompanying handouts, all included in the price.

First talk ‘From ancient Egypt to the 15th century’ includes an introduction to the series. Thursday 18th January 7.30-9 pm, also Tuesday 30th January 2.30-4 pm in the Morland Room. £6 per person, in advance or  on  the door.

Subsequent sessions will be two hours in length, including a break, @ £8 per person or £15 for two people together.

February’s talk will feature artists from the 16th and 17th centuries, and in March the focus will be those from the 18th. A further three sessions  are planned for after the Easter break.
