The Vectis Decorative & Fine Arts Society present The Golden Section in Art and Architecture by Alexandra Epps

Doors open at 6.30pm. Light suppers and bar available. Lecture starts at 8pm until 9pm. Visitors welcome £8.00

For thousands of years the mystery of the golden section has inspired thinkers from all the artistic disciplines. Discover the secrets of its sacred geometry and beauty within creations from the classical to the contemporary. Diagram: Approximate and true golden spirals. The green spiral is made from quarter-circles tangent to the interior of each square, while the red spiral is a Golden Spiral, a special type of logarithmic spiral. Overlapping portions appear yellow. The length of the side of one square divided by that of the next smaller square is the golden ratio.

Biography as written by Alexandra: The City has been my home for over twenty years and since qualifying as a guide I am keen to share the stories of its public art, iconic architecture and fascinating history.

Having practised as a graphic designer and worked with many of the City's major financial and legal institutions I have experienced the City from both inside and out.
