Wednesday Luncheon Circle – Guest Speaker Maurice Blik
12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
The Wednesday Luncheon Circle meets on the first Wednesday of each month, to enjoy a convivial lunch followed by a speaker. Topics are wide-ranging and offer the chance for a lively, friendly and informative get-together.
British sculptor and past President of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Maurice Blik, will read extracts from his artobiography, ‘The Art of Survival’.
This is a first-hand narrative of the horrors of Bergen-Belsen seen through the eyes of a child, and the remarkable life that followed. At the age of five, Maurice Blik experienced some of the worst atrocities of WW2, a legacy that remained silent in him for almost forty years, until it found a voice in the sculpture he began to create in the late 1970s.
As the story unfolds, so clues from his past emerge and connect with his artistic legacy.
£32.50 – includes talk and two-course lunch
