AUSTRALIAN DECORATIVE & FINE ARTS SOCIETY ILLUSTRATED TALK

ADFAS logo
What:       Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society lecture.   Lars Tharp, an historian well known to viewers of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow program, will tell the fascinating story of London’s Foundling Hospital entitled “The Captain, the Duchess and their 23,000 children”

ANTIQUES ROADSHOW PRESENTER STARTS THE YEAR FOR ADFAS

The Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, Mornington Peninsula will welcome Lars Tharp, a presenter on the highly regarded BBC’s Antiques Roadshow program, as its first speaker in 2016.

Chairman, Janet Glaspole, says that ADFAS is delighted to welcome Lars to the Mornington Peninsula on February 26th when he will tell the fascinating story of London’s Foundling Hospital. It was established in 1739 by the philanthropic sea captain Thomas Coram as a home for the education and maintenance of exposed and deserted young children. Artist William Hogarth had a long association with the Hospital and was a Governor as was composer George Handel.

“We are privileged to have an international speaker of this calibre to present our first lecture in 2016” Janet Glaspole said. “Lars will explore how Thomas Coram achieved his aim of providing a refuge for ‘foundlings’, and for babies at risk of infanticide, and the part Hogarth and Handel played in this. It is a gripping story with huge resonance for our own time”.

“If you have been thinking about joining ADFAS this is an ideal opportunity for you to come along and see what we have to offer” she continued. “Just call our booking secretary Glad Hungerford on 9787 2092 and she will be happy to reserve a seat for you at a cost of $20”.

Membership of ADFAS provides the opportunity to learn more about the Arts in a friendly, welcoming environment. Lectures are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre in Wilsons Road, Mornington at 5.30 on a Friday evening.   Each lecture is well illustrated, lasts for an hour, and is followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the lecturer and fellow members.

A wide range of topics will be covered in 2016 including “Inside Monet’s House at Giverny”; “Elizabeth Taylor’s greatest love affair…. with jewels” and “The aesthetics of Traditional Japanese Architecture and Design”.

According to Janet an additional benefit of membership is the opportunity to join fellow members from across Australia on small group tours designed around their special interests. “Last year I joined such a tour to the United States where we explored the dramatic history and superb art and architecture of three of the USA’s most historic cities – Boston, Washington and New York” she said. “I learnt so much from our excellent tour leader and went to places I would not have visited as an independent traveler”. Each year ADFAS Travel offers members a select range of tours to Europe, the United Kingdom, Asia, America and within Australia.

Where:    Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Road, Mornington

When:      Friday 26 February 2016 5.30 pm

Guests welcome, tickets $20, but please call 9787 2092 in advance to reserve a place.
