Entry fee, pay on door
The Dove Valley Arts Society presents a lecture on "Peggy Guggenheim" by Alexandra Epps.
The 'poor little rich girl' who changed the face of twentieth century art. Not only was Peggy Guggenheim ahead of her time but she was the woman who helped define it. She discovered and nurtured a new generation of artists producing a new kind of art. Through collecting not only art but the artists themselves, her life was as radical as her collection.
Alexandra Epps is an official guide and lecturer to Tate Modern, Tate Britain and the Guildhall Art Gallery. Alexandra has a background in design and is a qualified guide to the City of London.
There is an entry charge for non-members.
A short AGM will take place at 2pm before the lecture at 2.15pm.
