We Inspire, We do, We give ……..

SPRING BULLETIN 2022 ******

For the very first time The Arts Society Tarporley held a Fundraising Evening Event for the sponsorship of Young Artists.  We are delighted to have found an incredibly talented young dancer and singer to sponsor, Isabella Roberts who is eager to start her degree in musical theatre and also Philip Chidell, an exceptionally gifted violinist who has ambitions of starting his own orchestra. It was an evening to socialise with other members and we were served with wine and delicious canapés. After which we were entertained by Isabella and Philip. A great evening and a very successful fundraising event.  We look forward to helping Isabella and Philip aspire to greater things in the future.

If you would like to be a part of this very friendly, sociable society you can apply to join us by downloading a form from the Attachments section of this website.  Paper and online versions are available.  You may prefer to sample a lecture first and get to know us as our guest; just email guests@tastarporley.uk for more details.

We are a group of people who enjoy the arts in all forms and try to cater for eclectic tastes.  It’s not all about paintings, we enjoy monthly talks with professional speakers on very diverse subjects.  Recent topics have included:

  • Packing up the nation: During the Second World War, how our precious art works, books and museum pieces were stored away from the bombings of major cities.
  • How cathedrals were built.
  • Canal history and heritage.
  • Fiction, fallacy and fake news in art through the ages.
  • Picasso and cubism.

 

We also enjoy visits to gardens and historic houses both at home and abroad.  We have previously had tours to Berlin, Tuscany, Venice and Umbria where many paintings and other artworks can appreciated - along with a glass of wine!

We meet at the Tarporley Community Centre on the 2nd Thursday of the month from September through to June.

At the moment we are looking for members to help us on the committee - another good way to meet friends and have fun.  Without a committee we have no society. We specifically need help with the secretarial and administration roles. Please contact chairman@tastarporley.uk               

You can also follow us on Facebook.
