The Arts Society Worcester

We are a member society of The Arts Society. Our lecturers are of national and international standing and lecture on all aspects of decorative and fine arts. They have to satisfy an Arts Society vetting group before they can lecture to member societies, so the standard is consistently good.

During the course of the year, we also hold Days of Special Interest, Visits within the UK, and Cultural Tours. The tours take place in the UK and overseas. There are many other activities in which members may become involved. For details of those, see our About Us page.

The Society belongs to a larger group, the West Mercia Area, which promotes activities across a wider area and enables the exchanging of ideas, opinions and recommendations.

Anthony Russell Jones "Russ"

Service of Thanksgiving

Anthony became secretary of the Art Society under the leadership of Ian Evans in 2001. He has been involved with the society in a number of capacities ever since. Everyone will remember something of Russ' "career" with our society. Sue and Russ have lead so many fun packed trips in the UK, day and overnighters, ventures abroad and latterly visits to theatres. He started our web site and controlled it until this year. All will have been welcomed to a meeting by Russ and Sue offering you a glass of vino or fruit juice.

Earlier this year Russ was diagnosed with Cancer and he died on Thursday 9th May. The family are having a private service at the Crematorium and then there is a Service of Thanksgiving for him on Thursday 6th June at 2.30pm at St Andrew's Church, Ombersley.

He will be greatly missed by all of us.
