Stanley Spencer Gallery
The Stanley Spencer Gallery is dedicated to the life and work of the artist Stanley Spencer who was born in Cookham in 1891, where he lived for most of his working life. He called Cookham ‘a Village in Heaven’ and it was an endless source of artistic inspiration for him. The Gallery occupies the Victorian Wesleyan Chapel where Spencer was taken to worship as a child and contains many of his paintings, drawings, lithographs and archival material.
Meeting at the Gallery entrance at 10.45am, our visit will comprise a talk and tour of the gallery as well as a guided walk through the village referencing Spencer’s life in Cookham and the sites that inspired his paintings.
Cost: £15 for members, £17 for guests.
Please note that this visit is limited to 40 places.
