The House with Only an Attic and a Basement
An exhibition by Pete Swann and Kathryn Maris, curated by Michelle Klein.
The House with Only an Attic and a Basement brings together the work of two artists, painter and sculptor Pete Swann and poet Kathryn Maris, in an exhibition exploring often unspoken and uncomfortable aspects of the human psyche.

Both artists will also exhibit new work created during the coronavirus lockdown period.

Kathryn Maris is a poet, critic and curator based in London. Her ‘House of Atreus’ sequence of poetry won the Ivan Juritz Prize for creative experiment.

Twickenham Luminaries: Henrietta Howard and Marble Hill House
Pope's Grotto Trust and English Heritage’s Marble Hill have organised a series of five free virtual lectures on successive evenings starting on Monday 14th September. Each lecture will shine a light on a particular individual associated with a historic building in Twickenham and will be given by an acknowledged expert.
Henrietta Howard, Countess of Suffolk, (1689-1767) has perhaps been best known as mistress to the Prince of Wales, later George II. However, this talk will show that Howard was much more than a mistress. She become an extraordinary figure in the Georgian court and a member of a dynamic circle of writers, poets and politicians. One of her greatest achievements was the construction of her elegant Palladian villa, Marble Hill, and its gardens. This talk will explore how Marble Hill fits into Howard’s fascinating life story, Howard’s role in its creation, and her life at this most hard fought for retreat.
The talk will be given by Dr Megan Leyland, Senior Properties Historian at English Heritage specialising in country houses. Dr Leyland also has a strong interest in gender history. She is responsible for undertaking research and producing content to support new interpretation and dissemination projects. More about the talk and the lecturer can be found here.
Lectures will start at 6 pm and last for approximately 20 minutes with time being allowed for questions and answers at the end. The event will end at or before 7 pm. They will be delivered using Zoom so you will need a computer or tablet with the Zoom program/app on it. You will be sent a link by email shortly before the lecture begins and you should follow this link at the appropriate time to join the audience. If you haven't used Zoom before, you will be prompted to download the appropriate software as soon as you try to join.
