As the result of circumstances beyond our control, the series of Wednesday lectures and Sunday Study Days at Northumbria University Gallery is being cancelled at very short notice. As a result, "An Entertainment in Four Acts" advertised for August 2nd will not now take place. Gail-Nina regrets that she did not know in advance that the study day on Sunday 14th June would be the last in the series.
The next two Wednesday talks in the programme, "Giorgione's Concert Champêtre" (June 17th ) and "Ruisdael's The Jewish Cemetery" (July 1st) will go ahead as planned.
See the Talks page for details.
