Annual General Meeting on Monday 14th January 2019

The eighteenth THACS AGM will take place in Tewin Memorial Hall on Monday 14th January 2019 at 7:30pm.

The evening will start with the AGM and then there will be refreshments (including wine) followed by a talk from our guest speaker.

The notices for the AGM can be found by clicking HERE.

As you can see from the agenda, the meeting will include the Chairman’s and Treasurer’s report for 2018, the election of the officers and other committee members for 2019, a proposal for changing the Constitution and Rules and a preview of events for 2019.

Our guest speaker is Chris Bell and the subject of his talk will be How Photography Changed Painting Forever.

Chris graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Master’s degree in Photography and has spent 30 years as a professional photographer working with UK and international clients, ranging from Harrods to IBM.  He is an accomplished lecturer and an entertaining speaker.

His talk will be illustrated with projections of art works before and after the advent of the lens and after the photographic image arrived. This is an area little explored by the general public or the art world, who in the early days saw it either as a threat or as an inferior type of image making.  The use of the lens influenced painting in many ways even before photography itself was invented and certainly in the years after.  In more modern times photography has also been instrumental in changing our understanding of the way we see ourselves as well as the world around us.

There is no admission charge for the evening and no booking is necessary. This is an important meeting for THACS and all members are urged to attend. Non-members are very welcome but not able to vote. Any non-members who just wish to attend the talk are advised to arrive by 8:30pm.
