LEARN MORE ABOUT ROMANESQUE AND CELTIC ART

 

Tomorrow (Thursday) the Usher Gallery will present the fifth lecture in the history of art series currently being given by the University of Lincoln.

 

This week art from the Romanesque and Celtic periods will be discussed while artefacts representing these styles will be on display.

 

The lecture will be given by Dr John Lord, principal lecturer in Art History at the university’s Lincoln School of Art and Design.

 

The ‘Visual Arts: Antiquity to circa 1600’ series of lectures will continue until December and will cover the many and varied styles of art throughout the ages.

 

“The Usher Gallery and the City and County Museum have kindly provided real artefacts from the periods discussed which really adds an extra dimension to the lectures,” said Ian Waites, programmes leader for the History of Art and Design course.

 

All are welcome to attend the lectures which take place each Thursday at the Usher Gallery on Lindum Road between 12.30pm and 1.30pm.
