A presentation on William Turner - A fundraiser for the Breede Centre



Dear Breede Centre Friends,

Warm greetings to you all.

 Michael Grimley will be giving a presentation on the English artist, William Turner at Wahnfried, McGregor, on Saturday 23 April as part of a focus on artists during April. This will be a fundraiser for the Breede Centre – donations at the door. There will also be films shown on Friday evening and Sunday afternoon. So if you live out of McGregor do consider joining us for a weekend of culture and beauty! It is so beautiful here in McGregor in our mild autumn.
