A note from NSA President Alice Koziol:

Dear NSA Members,

It is unfortunate and disappointing that we will be unable to meet in person for our first lecture of the 2021-2022 Norfolk Society of Arts Lecture Series. We do look forward, however, to having you join us virtually on Wednesday, October 6th. At that time, we are pleased to welcome our speaker, Ann Dumas, Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, as well as Consultant Curator of European Art at the Museum of Arts, Houston. Ann will speak to us about her exhibition “Hockney-Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature” on view earlier this year at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

On October 5th, you will receive an email with the link for access to the lecture and it will also be posted here on the website. You will also receive an email address to enable you to ask a question of our speaker. We are excited and confident that you will enjoy Ann’s lecture.

Thank you for your continued support.
Alice Koziol, President
