The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent Arts Society de La Frontera lecture on 20th March at the San Roque Golf & Country Club on the Costa del Sol. We were represented by one of our local and long-serving advisers, Charles Hutchinson, who attended along with our co-sponsors Rathbone Brothers represented by Chris Wanless. Also present was the society’s European Chairman Jo Ward and Peter Kirrage, who is on the Arts Society Global Board of Trustees.
The Arts Society is a leading global arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies and national events throughout the world.
With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the UK’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, the Arts Society is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
At this event, over 140 attendees were entertained by a talk on Tamara de Lempicka: Art Deco and the Roaring Twenties by Harry Fletcher, who is one of the UK’s top experts in this field. He gave an excellent lecture, revealing to us the artist and notorious personality behind the individual style one has seen everywhere but most of us never knew who it was!
The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes including CH supplied lovely coffee table book on the artist, champagne and an elegant glass jug. Rathbones also supplied stylish personal notebooks, a 12 year old whisky and a magnum of Rioja.
All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue. The Spectrum IFA Group was very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organization during its current global expansion and we hope to have the opportunity to do so again.
