About the event

As part of Mole Valley Arts Alive 2022, the ‘Art of the City’ Special Interest Morning will focus on two different art topics connected with our great capital.

We begin by exploring the ‘Art of Light’ - Stained Glass in the City. We will discover their unique storytelling, symbolism, and above all their radiant visual beauty.

After a break for coffee and pastries, we will then explore ‘The Art of the River’ - Inspirations of the Thames. The River Thames has inspired artists for over three hundred years and continues to do so today.
