Events

Events of interest to our members form an important part of
the Anglo-Swedish Society’s agenda. Some 12-15 are organized
every year and highlighted in our newsletters, produced three
times yearly. Although there is often an obvious Swedish
connection, we take the view that members meeting up and
getting to know each other is the key factor in these popular
get-togethers. The events are often combined with a lunch,
dinner or evening drinks.

    Herman Lohe: Nordic Tales

     

    Coffee morning with a viewing of Nordic Tales, an exhibition of works by Swedish artist, Heman Lohe.

    Join us for a coffee morning with a viewing of Nordic Tales, an exhibition of works by Swedish artist, Heman Lohe. Nordic Tales is the first UK solo exhibition of works by Swedish artist Herman Lohe. The exhibition features recently completed paintings by the artist as well as works which span Lohe’s creative career. Lohe is a multidisciplinary artist who identifies nature as his primary muse; the subject matter of the bulk of his work is lakes and watery landscapes in Sweden. Throughout his twenty-five years as a practicing artist, he has continued to explore and variously employ “classical” painting, installations and video art.
