Presentation: Thursday 1 February at Salones Canor, Teulada.
Art Treasures of Madrid
by Harry Fletcher.
The Chairman and Committee are pleased to confirm that the first AGM of the Arts Society Marina Alta will be held at the Salones Canor, Teulada on Thursday 1 February. Registration of members starting at 9.45am, the AGM starts at 10.15am, followed by our first presentation at 11am.
The Society is on the move! It is a victim of it’s own success! And the restrictions to access of our original venue by the proposed development of the promenade between the town and the Parador Hotel. The move is to Salones Canor, Cami d’Assagador de Canor, Teulada, which we hope will bring equal success in our second year. We believe it will be of greater benefit to our members to have a larger area for our presentations, better disabled access and more than adequate onsite parking.
Our first presentation in 2018 will be Art Treasures of Madrid presented by Harry Fletcher, who will be making a return visit but with a different subject. Harry has been involved with Art & Design education in the U.K. at both secondary and university level for many years as tutor and examiner. He is also noted as a portrait painter and has some success as a practicing artist in his own right, having been shortlisted for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London.
Harry’s excellent illustrations, combined with his in-depth knowledge of the treasures held in the private homes and museums of Madrid, will allow us to walk in the ‘barrios’ with Sorolla, Velazquez, Goya, El Greco and many others. Madrid is a unique City of Arts by any standards and we will see the best of the best with Harry.
As is our usual practice, drinks will be available after the presentation to enable members, guests and visitors to mix socially.
The new venue for 2018: Salones Canor, Cami d’Assagador de Canor, Teulada. Doors open for visitors 10.45am for 11am start.
