Cul­ture ex­change at art talk event

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

PREST­BURY’S Art ap­pre­ci­a­tion so­ci­ety has an­nounced two talks all about art from around the world.

The first talk, on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 27, is en­ti­tled ‘From Da­m­as­cus to Cordoba’, and will ex­am­ine how cul­ture has been ex­changed be­tween the east­ern part of the world and the west, fo­cus­ing on the begin­nings of an Is­lamic aes­thetic and its spread from the At­lantic to Cen­tral Asia. It will be pre­sented by Chris­tine Mus­grove, lec­turer and art his­to­rian. On Mon­day, Novem­ber 24, a ‘Glory of Rem­brandt’ lec­ture pre­sented by Nir­vana Romell will study the in­no­va­tions he in­tro­duced in his paint­ings and print­mak­ing.

Both lec­tures will take place from 10am to 12noon at Prest­bury Vil­lage Hall, Mac­cles­field Road, Prest­bury, and are free to PAAS mem­bers and £8 for non-mem­bers.
