Luncheon Club: Memoirs of a Cheltenham Curator 1973-1981, with David Addison

Date(s) - 1st Dec 2015

St Matthew's Church


David Addison was appointed in 1973 to advise Cheltenham Borough Council on the setting up of a Borough Art Gallery and Museum when the library was transferred to the County Council as part of local government reorganisation. The highs and lows of this significant period in the life of Cheltenham’s Art Gallery and Museum (now The Wilson) will be explored in David’s personal reminiscences – some serious, others less so!

As an art historian, art curator and educator, David is now an occasional lecturer on Art Appreciation at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and is working with the National Gallery on research into the Northwick Collection and on picture collectors of the 19th Century in Bristol and Gloucestershire.

Venue: St. Matthew’s Church, Clarence Street, Cheltenham – opposite The Wilson

Time: Buffet lunch from 12 noon. Speaker 1.15 – 2.15 pm Cost: £15; talk only £8
