The Arts Society Isle of Wight At Quay Arts (formerly the Vectis Decorative and Fine Arts Society) begin their 2018-19 season of art lectures on the Island on 18th October with a lecture by Douglas Skeggs.

His lecture is titled, "The artists of Montmarte - The Pilgrims of Babylon"

There is no more evocative of Bohemian life than Montmartre. The garden cafes, dancehalls, caberats and studios of Montmartre became the inspiration to some of France's greatest artists.

Where and when
The lectures at Quay Arts Centre, Newport begin at 8pm (running until 9.15pm), but the cafe is open from 6.30pm if anyone wants to take advantage of a meal or drinks before the lecture.

The cost to visitors is £8.
