Welcome to The Arts Society Eastbourne

Founded in 1973 under its original name, The Eastbourne Decorative and Fine Arts Society, The Arts Society Eastbourne (TASE) adopted its new name following the Society’s launch of a new “look” nationally in May 2017. It is a thriving Society with a membership of over 200, which has been meeting at the delightful East Dean & Friston Village Hall, located 4 miles west of Eastbourne. While government restrictions continue, we are currently offering online lectures to the end of the 2020/21 season. For membership details, see information listed below.
 
An exciting core programme consists of monthly lectures which cover a very wide spectrum. In recent years these included The Maya Heritage, The Genius of Antonio Stradivari, Bayeux Tapestry, Art work spanning all periods and cultures including Wassily Kandinsky: Figurative landscape painter to modernist master. 

Our most recent visit took place in October 2019 at Eastbourne College to see the installation from the International Stevens Competition, run by the worshipful Company of Glaziers and won by the talented young artist - Jessica Lambinet. A Special Interest Day was held at the Eastbourne Towner on Art Deco Style.  The planned visits in 2020 have been postponed.
 
Our lecture programme continues but until further notice all will be given online  via Zoom; details of the lectures can be found in "Events" section.
