The Big Three: Tuesday September 13, 2011 • 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, or 1:30 – 3:30 pm.

Furniture design within the Georgian Period (1714–1830) was dominated by the talent of three men: Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton. Mr. Patterson’s collection includes fine examples of the styles created by these gifted cabinetmakers. Join us as we examine the characteristics of these exquisite pieces of furniture.

The Grand Tour: Tuesday September 27, 2011 • 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, or 1:30 – 3:30 pm.

Young English elites of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries often travelled Europe in an effort to broaden their horizons and learn about language, architecture, geography, and culture. Discover the history of this form of travel and view some typical examples of “Grand Tour” souvenirs found in the collection at North Hills Museum.

The Royal Academy at North Hills: Tuesday October 11, 2011 • 10:00 am – 12:00 pm, or 1:30 – 3:30 pm.

Founded by King George III in 1768, the Royal Academy of the Arts raised the position of artists through education and opportunities to exhibit their work. During the Georgian Period (1714-1830), some of the most famous members included Sir Frances Chantrey, George Chinnery, Francis Cotes, John Hoppner and George Morland, all for you to discover at North Hills Museum.
