Join us for a study of three artists, Hogarth, Reynolds and Gillray, their lives, their works and their perceptions of society and politics. We will break the day into three lectures and discover what each artist has done to define British art in the Georgian era.

Our lecturer Linda Smith holds two first-class degrees in Art History. She has a broad knowledge of art historical subjects, but specialises in British Art and twentieth century art. She is an experienced lecturer and guide, especially at Tate Britain and Tate Modern, and has lectured to a wide variety of audiences in different venues, including school and university students, and independent arts societies in the UK and overseas.

Our day will be split into three lectures, two in the morning and one in the afternoon after a lunch break of about an hour and a quarter.

General admission with lunch includes a ploughman's lunch, fresh fruit, a glass of wine and coffee in its pricing, whereas General Admission only includes coffee on arrival. All ticket prices are inclusive of the Eventbrite booking fee.

For your safety, in relation to covid-19, on arrival at The Ark, entry to the Main Hall will be through the fire doors on the north side of the building. Face masks should be worn when moving around the building, for example when using the toilets. Moving from the main hall to our luncheon room will involve going outdoors via the rooms' respective fire doors.
