The Arts Society Teme Valley
Welcome to The Arts Society Teme Valley. We draw our members from across the community and are dedicated to promoting the appreciation and enjoyment of the Arts. We look at the history and contribution to our heritage of all forms of the Arts in their many guises including painting, sculpture, design, theatre, music and architecture.
We are proud of our series of well-supported lectures given by renowned experts on a wide variety of interesting subjects. They are held on the 3rd Wednesday each month from September to May in the Ludlow Assembly Rooms. See Lectures for more information. We also organize Study Days, and Visits. Other events will be advertised from time to time.
Come and join us on a Wednesday afternoon from two o’clock at the Ludlow Assembly Rooms to find out more and enjoy listening to a talk about something you had never realized was so fascinating.
To find out how to join us or become a member and find out more about us, please click on Join Us and the other tabs above. We are a member of The Arts Society and are part of The Arts Society West Mercia area.
Owing to renovation works currently being carried out by the Ludlow Assembly Rooms (LAR), from now until further notice, Lectures will take place in Oscars, NOT in the auditorium. The coffee and tea sessions after the Lectures will be held in the Studio. LAR will provide signage to enable visitors to find Oscars as the usual entrance will be closed. Should the improvement works at LAR ever preclude the use of Oscars, details of an alternative venue will be published here.

THE ART OF PARTYING
Alice Foster Peasant Wedding
A Feast for the Eyes
From Roman Mosaics in the second century, through weddings in the Bible, Renaissance allegories of refinement and excess, sixteenth century peasant parties out of doors, eighteenth century courtship dances, to the celebratory styles of twentieth century painters, the depiction of people socialising has always been popular in the history of Western Art.
Alice Foster traces the variety of merrymaking, banqueting, dances and music in a feast of colour.
Cadmus, Sailors and Floosies
Further details of each Lecture will be shown on the Lectures page as soon as they become available
Visitors welcome, pay £8 at the door
