November 10: The second lecture is all about land, landscape and the natural world. After the lecture, we will take a visit to the art galleries for a tour of landscape artworks.

December 8: This lecture takes a look at the history and interpretation of abstract art. We will also view and interpret abstract artworks in our art gallery, with a special sneak peek at selected artworks from the vault.
