Who are the Ashtead Art Lovers?

Ashtead Art Lovers is a for those wanting to know more about art, artists and the history of the times. 

Going round exhibitions I always recommend taking the hand held guides because these guides are designed to provide information specific to the temporary exhibitions.  My AAL presentations are designed to broaden your background knowledge and I take into consideration the political events, the influential people, the specific art movements and how all of this influences the art of the period. 

As you will see from this year's list of talks, a wide aspect of art is covered and is related to many of the temporary exhibitions in London. The evening takes the format of a power point presentation with a rolling discussion in a relaxed and informal setting, with drinks and nibbles. 

In addition, there are various day courses for those wanting to delve deeper into particular subjects. For more information, or to register an interest contact Mell Fraser either by email: ashteadartlovers@gmail.com or by phone 01372 272 235. Whether you are just beginning to explore the world of art or want to look at art history in greater depth, AAL provides the perfect starting point.

The feeling of love is among the greatest & eternal aspects one discovers in the human spirit.  It is remarkable in that it survives under all circumstances & trials, it always retains its appeal in the sphere of art ... Chingiz Aitmatov, foreward to Jamilia.


 This is a bronze that I adore.  I went out to buy a garden shed and instead, came back with him!  Who he is, I have no idea.
