Winchester solicitors announce sponsorship at School of Art
Shentons Solicitors of Winchester are sponsoring an important lecture at Winchester School of Art next week.
The lecture will be given by critic and theorist Thierry de Duve and is entitled What to do with the Avant-garde? Or: What remains of the Nineteenth century in the Art of the Twentieth? It is the first lecture in a new series being organized by the University's Centre for Contemporary Art Research, and will be given in Winchester on Thursday 25 April, at 6 pm in the School of Art's New Lecture Theatre.
The lecture is free and members of the public are welcome to attend.
The lecture series is one of a number of special events organized for the University's Golden Jubilee year. "Winchester School of Art is delighted that Shentons have generously agreed to sponsor some of our activities," said Professor Katharine Crouan, Head of the School. "Sponsorship is increasingly important to the School and the University and enables us to promote our activities to wider audiences."
Shentons have practised law in Winchester since the 1800s and have always been actively involved with the local community. "We are delighted to sponsor Winchester School of Art with their lectures featuring contemporary artists and wish them every success with the Series," said Mr Robert Kerr, of Shenton's Solicitors.
Shentons are also sponsoring the private view of Slow Glass, the current exhibition at the Winchester Gallery.
