Curves, Colours & Cool: An Introduction to Mid-Century Moderns with Mark Hill

The Arts Society welcome Mark Hill, Antiques Roadshow expert and TV presenter, to The Atkinson for the first in a series of lectures from The Arts Society.  The Arts Society will be holding three more lectures with speakers to be announced soon.

The antiques market has changed dramatically and now pieces that were made during the 1970s can fetch many times more than a piece made in the 1770s. Why has the teak sideboard you threw out become so desirable? Who is this Eames guy? Drawing a blank with Timo Sarpaneva? Who’s buying what and what are they doing with it? This practical and inspirational lecture looks at furniture, ceramics, glass, lighting and metalware, identifies key designs and designers, and then examines the revolutionary design movements they began.

6pm – Welcome in Gallery with a glass of wine
7pm – Lecture
