Background

At ADFAS we see that part of our remit is also to encourage full time Art Students to participate in our activities and gain a broader insight to all aspects of the arts by offering the opportunity to listen to our speaker for no expenditure!

Hence we are pleased to offer a limited number of Student tickets for qualifying youngsters to gain entrance to this meeting using this FREE ticket facility.

Our Speaker tonight is Justin Reay

He is also a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries and of the Royal Historical Society, a member of the Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association, New York, and an Active member of The Arts Society - Cheltenham in his spare time!

Our Talk tonight is 'Vegetarian Vampires: The Surrealist Paintings of Remedios Varo'

Remedios Varo was a member of the art group known as Logicophobiste. Due to her Republican ties during the Spanish Civil War, her 1937 move to Paris with Péret ensured that she would never be able to return to Franco’s Spain. There she was greatly influenced by the surrealist movement. Varo worked alongside such luminaries of the surrealist movement as Andre Bréton, Max Ernst and Salvador Dalí, until forced to flee Paris in to exile in 1940 by the German occupation.
