Gainsborough’s House is delighted to invite you to the 2nd of two special lectures, kindly given by John Sheeran in support of Reviving an Artist’s Birthplace: A National Centre for Gainsborough.
John is a former Curator of Dulwich Picture Gallery, London and has organised exhibitions worldwide. He is well known in East Anglia for his inspirational art talks. A key purpose of his lectures is to encourage people to go and see the original paintings for themselves, so that they can experience the visual, emotional and intellectual stimulation of great art.
Tickets are £15 per person and include a glass of wine.
All proceeds from this event will support Gainsborough’s House capital project.

Thomas Gainsborough (1727-88) was born in Sudbury and baptised at the Independent Meeting-House in Friars Street on 14 May 1727, the fifth son and ninth child of John and Mary Gainsborough. In 1958, Gainsborough’s House Society was formed to purchase the house and establish it as a centre for Thomas Gainsborough. The Museum opened to the public in 1961 and has remained open for over 50 years. The beautiful historic garden at the heart of Gainsborough’s House is maintained by a devoted body of volunteers, who garden exclusively with plants that were available in Gainsborough’s lifetime.
