The Spectrum IFA Group again co-sponsored an excellent DFAS (Decorative & Fine Arts Society) lecture on 14th December at the San Roque Golf & Country Club on the Costa del Sol. We were heartily represented by one of our local and long-serving Advisers, Charles Hutchinson, who attended along with our co-sponsors Richard Brown, Lewis Cohen and Harriette Collings from Tilney Bestinvest. Tilney Bestinvest also very kindly hosted a lunch afterwards for selected potential clients, the DFAS Chairman and the Lecturer.
The National Association of Decorative & Fine Arts Society (NADFAS) is a leading Arts charity which opens up the world of the arts through a network of local societies (such as DFAS in Spain) and national events throughout the world.
With inspiring monthly lectures given by some of the country’s top experts, together with days of special interest, educational visits and cultural holidays, NADFAS is a great way to learn, have fun and make new and lasting friendships.
At this event, over 120 attendees were entertained by a talk on Dutch Genre Painting by Lynne Gibson who is one of the UK’s top experts in this field. She was excellent and kept the audience gripped and entertained with her knowledge and humour – especially the hidden saucy side to the art which she revealed to great effect!
The talk was followed by a drinks reception which included a free raffle for prizes including CH produced Champagne, mince pies and a lovely coffee table book on Dutch Genre Painting. Tilney Bestinvest also supplied a wooden permanent calendar designed and beautifully crafted by Viscount Linley, the Queen’s nephew, which caused a further stir after their last year’s prize!
All in all, a great turnout and a very successful event at a wonderful venue. The Spectrum IFA Group were very proud to be involved with such a fantastic organisation and we hope to have the opportunity to do so again.
