    Art in Advertising

    Drinks from 7pm, one-hour lecture at 8pm. £5 payable on the door. No ticket needed.

    Description

    Fine art has provided advertisers and their agencies with a great deal of material to use in their creative campaigns. Tony describes some of the processes by which these advertisements have been created and why the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo have been a particularly rich source.

    Our speaker, Tony Rawlins, describes some of the processes by which these advertisements have been created and why the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael and Michelangelo have been a particularly rich source. From the Renaissance through to the present day fine art continues to provide opportunities to enhance Brand imagery with admiration, humour, satire and irony.

    In an entertaining and informative lecture Tony uses a wide range of visuals and video to show examples of the original works, the creative process and the (not always entirely successful) advertisements that are the end result.  

    Speaker's Profile
    Tony was educated at Highgate School, starting his career in advertising in 1965 as a mail boy in J.Walter Thompson. He graduated through the training system there to become an account director and subsequently worked in a number of agencies before setting up on his own in 1985. There he handled primarily Guinness advertising in Africa and the Caribbean, where he produced many commercials and print ads for them over a period of 15 years. He remains active as a consultant in the industry, but now concentrates on more philanthropic projects – producing a film in the rural villages of Nigeria for the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. More recently he has completed a sanitation project in Haiti after it was devastated by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.  

    He has been a member of The Arts Society for many years. His earlier lecturing experience includes presenting to client groups, sales conferences and students of creative advertising in the UK and overseas. More recently he has been lecturing to Arts Societies in the UK and Europe.

    In the Gallery: Russell Terry

    An alumnus of the Royal College of Art, Russell Terry works within drawing, painting, printing, casting, and collage, often utilising hand-cut paper. The results reveal compulsive inclinations towards pattern, sequence, systems, combinatronics and cataloguing, always in the great corrupting shadows of infinity. Russell comments “Everything declared finished is really a punctuation mark or a breathing space in a potentially endless sentence in a potentially endless book in a potentially endless library. Like this condensed statement, everything is forever a work-in-progress.”

    The Cadillac Kings

    The Cadillac Kings are going from strength to strength.  Their 2016 album 'The Secret of my Success' ended up on so many playlists that in 2 months it was voted one of the top 3 blues CDs of the year by the IBBA (along with Kaz Hawkins and Joe Bonamassa).  Throughout 2017, the CD continued to make inroads into US radio and one of the album tracks reached Number One in Cashbox Magazine's Blues & Boogie Chart, and stayed there for 4 weks, holding off acts such as The Fabulous Thunderbirds, John Primer, Coco Montoya, Rick Estrin & the Nightcats, Samantha Fish etc.  The Cadillac Kings were the only UK act to figure in the chart during 2017.
    2019 sees the band celebrating its 19th birthday, with the multi-talented Tim Penn on piano, accordion and vocals, Mal Barclay on guitar, Mike Thomas on vocals, Paul Cuff on double bass and Roy Webber on drums.
    "Entertaining, authentic and infectious, The Cadillac Kings' high energy RnB is enough to put a foaming head on a pint of real ale!" (Blues in Britain). £12 (£10 Members).

    An Exhibition of New Paintings by John Potter

    John’s new work is a response to his local environment - the natural habitats and industrial surroundings of a small section of the River Thames in Isleworth where he lives and works. Working with a combination of observation, memory and invention, he creates bold, colourful images which lie between landscape and abstraction.

    Each day, the artist walks along the Thames observing the changes in the riverscape - the daily ebb and flow of the tides and play of light upon the surface of the water; seasonal changes of colour and light; the slowly rusting, fading boats laying across the river in the boatyard, as their hulls are exposed at low tide. A constantly changing colour palette is revealed and created by the constant movement of the tides.

    The resulting paintings develop out of this experience but, rather than being direct representations of physical reality, they attempt to create dream-like spaces, hinting at what lies beyond or beneath the surface. The viewer is encouraged to let their eyes roam across the painting, moving through its different layers and levels rather than fixing on a single focal point or meaning.

    The exhibition is open 7 – 15 September 2019, with a private view on Friday 6 September.

    To register for the private view please visit: www.johnpotter.co

    Gilbert & Sullivan explained in 60 minutes

    A light-hearted introduction to the world of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

    Where did they come from? What do they tell us about Victorian society, ye lower middle classes? How is it that Gentlemen of Japan and Gondoliers are so very English? What does tarantara mean - and is it the same as tantantara?

    We have a little list – but after quiet calm deliberation - few answers. But there will be tunes and some explanation - it will last about an hour - refreshments will be available afterwards in the chancel.

    Performed by Eve Baker (Soprano), Clarinda Chan (Soprano), Rachel Logan (Mezzo), Lisa Colclough (Mezzo and Piano), James Aitken (Tenor), Chris Britton (Tenor and Piano), Adrian Mumford (Organ and Baritone), Chris Williams (Bass) and John Albasiny (Narrator).

    Peter Donegan & The Band (as seen on The Voice UK)

    Peter Donegan is the son of Lonnie Donegan, the King of Skiffle.  Peter recently made headline news when he appeared on The Voice and duetted with Tom Jones in a song his father wrote for him.  Peter is a talented musician in his own right.  A songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he plays Piano, Guitar, Mandolin, Harmonica, Banjo, as well as lead vocals.  He has toured with Lonnie Donegan, Van Morrison and Crystal Gale.
    Peter and his great band will perform some of Lonnie Donegan's classics and lesser know recordings, combined with original numbers from his latest album which he wrote and recorded in Nashville.  All in all, this will be a great night of Blues, Country and Skiffle, and a lot of foot-stomping fun!  £13 (£11 Members).

    MIE presents Gareth Lockrane

    MIE presents its second of jazz concerts at this wonderful venue.

    1901 Arts Club is a beautiful and unique venue very close to Waterloo Station, which was converted from an old schoolmaster’s house. The tastefully decorated concert salon, inspired by Europe’s Salon culture, houses a Steinway grand piano and can cater for an audience of up to 45. There is a stylish bar and lounge area with a late night licence where audience members can relax before or after the performance.

    Gareth Lockrane - flutes

    Terence Collie - piano

    Richard Sadler - bass

    "Lockrane's flute work is exceptional, combining a relaxed fluidity on the one hand with an acute adventureness on the other..." Peter Quinn, Jazzwise

     

    "The formidable Lockrane...a stunning display of sharp-accented runs, earthy whoops and constantly refrshed melodic ideas" John Fordham, The Gaurdian

    Daisy Pulls It Off

    Daisy Pulls it off by Denise Deegan

    Directed by Clare and Wes Henderson Roe

    An amateur production by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd

    A ripping 'Girls Own' yarn, where right triumphs over adversity.

    When Daisy Meredith wins the first scholarship to the hitherto exclusive Grangewood School for Girls, not everyone is pleased.  Can she put up with the 'toadyish' behavous? Will the Headmistress realise she is being made a scapegoat? Will she survive and win through without losing her cool? 

    A jolly funny 1927 storyline, with 2019 morals - what larks!
