The Arts Society – New Forest

Welcome to The Arts Society New Forest.  As a society we are interested in furthering our knowledge of the fine arts.  We meet on a regular basis to enjoy lectures on a range of topics, delivered by renowned speakers.  Our interests are extended further when we study subjects in greater depth and go out on day visits and breaks away, both in Britain and abroad.

An important aspect of our society is our aim to offer the opportunity, within an artistic framework, to young people from the local community to explore and extend their personal knowledge.  Conservation of heritage is important to us too. A group of our members regularly meet to record for posterity, the fabric and artefacts of local places of worship.

Our society is a local branch of The Arts Society , an international charitable organization.

If you visit any exhibitions or Art galleries it would be good if you would send a short review to me – Ruth Conway – that we could then publish on this website so our members would get ideas for visits (or places to avoid). There are currently 2 under reviews.

If you have any reviews,  ideas or suggestions please email them to :  ruth.conway@hotmail.co.uk

N.B.: It is Membership Renewal time and that subscriptions are due by 1st April. 

Renewal emails were sent out today – please check your junk email folders in case the Renewal email has gone into them!

 GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY YEAR (1972 – 2022)
TASNF May Newsletter 2022

 Dear Members,To celebrate our Golden Anniversary Year, we currently have a window exhibition display at St. Barbe’s Museum in Lymington – when you are in Lymington do go and see it – it runs until Saturday 14th May.It is with regret that TASNF announces that we will not be zooming lecturers from the hall, in the future. We have tried hard to make it happen, (with support from the Hall) but the broadband is sadly not up to it.  This will be disappointing for those who are unable to get to the Hall, please accept our apologies. Should Covid restrictions recur we will continue to Zoom lecturers from their homes.It is a pleasure to see members returning to the Hall. We do enjoy seeing you in person, with the opportunity for all to meet up together again and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit before the lecture begins.Next month will be the final lecture in our 2021-2022 season. This is going to be an interesting one: ‘8 Buildings for 8 Faiths in London’ by Charlie Forman.At the June meeting, you will be able to collect your programme for the 2022-2023 season.  Don’t forget to pick up your commemorative booklet from the registration table, there is one for every member.  Further down, you will see the invitation to our 50th Anniversary lunch at ‘Southlawns’ on June 27th. There was a misprint in the original invitation of Janet’s email address, it should read janethandley01@gmail.com, which could explain why your email application would have bounced.Successful 50-year-old Arts Society seeking Budding Projectionists with a GSH for Occasional Link-ups’: We are looking to increase our pool of competent projectionists for our lectures in the Hall. Please get in touch with me, if you can help, or perhaps your partner, family member, or friend. We are all volunteers and I know everyone is very busy, but it would be a great help to our Society if we could involve a few more to help. It would only be on an occasional basis to allow for holidays and other commitments. Full training and support would be given.   Dates in your Diary STRATFORD AND SHAKESPEARE COUNTRY: 18th– 21st September 2022, Residential Visit. We will be watching ‘All’s Well that Ends Well’ at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.  If you are interested in joining us, please contact Sue Balfour – suebalfour@tiscali.co.uk or Tel:01590 718056 Best wishes to you all on behalf of the committee.                                        Diana Heatly, Chairman
