Spelthorne in Art by Nick Pollard

Riverside Arts Centre (Studio), Middlesex, TW16 5QF
Tue 9th July 2019 7:30PM
Part of the Sunbury & Shepperton Arts Festival 2019

This talk, copiously illustrated with slides, looks at representations of Spelthorne in art, mainly paintings but also sculpture, from the 18th century to the present. The artists, some of them world famous, and their connections with Spelthorne are discussed, as well as what the artworks can tell us about the history of the local places depicted.

Nick Pollard has been Chairman of Sunbury and Shepperton Local History Society for the past twenty-two years, as well as being Honorary Curator of Spelthorne Museum in Staines, and has a lifelong fascination with the history of the Spelthorne area. He is the author of numerous books on the history of Sunbury and Shepperton, as well as contributing articles on history to local magazines, and giving talks to local organisations. Away from the field of history, Nick is a keen gardener and wildlife enthusiast. Nick has lived in Shepperton all his life, and works in the aerospace industry.
