“The Hidden Meanings of Renaissance Art”. An illustrated talk by Dr Michael Cefai
Renaissance art is rich not only in terms of beauty, aesthetics and technique but also in terms of the colours and the symbolism that it carries, portraying an insightful visual language, which at times is intriguing and even open to vast interpretation. This talk will take a look at the hidden meanings of Renaissance Art and the artists behind them.

Venue: Radmoor Centre at Loughborough College
Cost: free for members, £3 for non-members, with bar available to purchase cold and hot drinks.
