The Arts Society Gibraltar, Ministry of Culture Lecture – 709/2019

By October 1, 2019 No Comments

Gibraltar Cultural Services on behalf of the Ministry of Culture is pleased to support the Arts Society Gibraltar’s first lecture in this new series on Edward Hooper. GCS supports the Art Society’s aim to bring people together through a shared curiosity for the arts. The Arts Society Gibraltar is entering its 10th year Anniversary, with constant growth and support during this decade.

The lecture on Wednesday 16th October, at the Garrison Library, at 7:30pm, is entitled “All the Lonely People”.

Edward Hopper was an American realist painter and printmaker. While he is best known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a water-colourist and printmaker. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life. He was a great influence on pop art in the 60s and 70s. This illustrated talk will be presented by Stella Grace Lyons.

The monthly events generally held every 3rd Wednesday of the month (from October until May,) provide a welcome environment, in a historic setting, for the enjoyment and discussion of art. More details of this season’s programme on The Arts Society Gibraltar Facebook page.
