The Scottish Colourists – Bringing Paris to the Highlands and Islands
In the early years of the 20th Century four Scottish artists brought Post-Impressionism to Scotland, painting island landscapes, Edinburgh interiors and fashionable models with the vibrant colours of Matisse and the Fauves.
They studied in France but their works burn bright on the walls of galleries across Scotland and are much sought after by collectors.
This talk explores the work of Cadell, Fergusson, Hunter and Peploe and their position in the history of British art. Maybe it’s time for another trip to Scotland!
Non members welcome cost £10. Please contact Anna Cross for payment or membership details and Zoom link at firstname.lastname@example.org

Thursday Painting Workshop
The Radlett Art Society meets in the Radlett Institute, Watling Street on Thursday afternoon from 1.30 - 3.30pm, during the winter months. During the summer months we paint” en plein air” in the environs of Radlett.
Cost per session is £6 and you do have to be a member of the Society to attend. We are a mixed ability friendly group, keen to share our expertise and knowledge , and paint in all mediums
There is no formal teaching but we are hoping to resume afternoon demonstrations and full day workshops with a visiting artist when Covid allows.
You need to bring along your own paper, pencils and / or paints. Some people bring along their own flask of tea and biscuits, since because of the covid epidemic it was decided not to offer refreshments as before
If you fancy joining the workshop, please feel free to contact us using the contact form here.
