The Arts Society Sidmouth Lecture & AGM

10:00 am 5 June 2024
12:00 pm 5 June 2024

AGM at 10.30

Followed by The Subtle Science and Exact Art of Colour in English Garden Design: why gardening can rank as a fine art  by Timothy Walker

In 1882 Gertrude Jekyll wrote a short but seminal article in The Garden in which she urged the readers to “remember that in a garden we are painting a picture”. As an accomplished watercolour artist, Miss Jekyll was familiar with the principles of using colours, but she felt that in gardens these principles “had been greatly neglected”. This talk looks at how to apply these principles in designing a border, but it also looks at the ways in which a border is different from a painting.

Doors open at 10am for refreshments. Seated by 10.30 for a prompt 10.40 start.

Pay on the door as a guest, cash only, £8 per lecture
