Thank you Jeremy! A great 2nd Judith Moy Memorial lecture.

by Webmaster on May 14, 2018

On a particularly fine Friday 4th May evening, some 50 members and friends gathered at the Trinity Centre in Meole Brace for the second of our annual Judith Moy Memorial lectures, designed to celebrate her considerable contribution to the Society’s development.

On this occasion we were fortunate to have as our speaker, Jeremy Yates, President of the Royal Cambrian Art Society, in which role he follows in the footsteps of Augustus John and more recently Kyffin Williams. The title of his lecture, “In Artists’ Footsteps through Snowdonia” reflected our request for him to talk about The long tradition of painters exploring and responding to this exciting landscape. Drawing on his considerable knowledge he took us from the earliest responses of these travelling artists up to those of Kyffin Williams and our immediate contemporaries, such as David Tress, well known to us in Shropshire.

At our request he brought for display some fine examples of his own landscape paintings.

He was warmly thanked by Wilf Langford, retiring Chairman, on behalf of those present. Alan Townsend was also thanked for organising the event.

Our thanks go, too, to Anne Linton for her photographs of the evening as well as to the staff of the Trinity Centre for their assistance in making the arrangements and for their help on the night.
