Peter has just returned from an in-depth journey through Turkey in Fall 2015 and Summer 2016. Turkey is the only country in the world that has an eclectic mix of European, Asian and Middle Eastern cultures. This journey captures the essence of Turkish culture and heritage: a delightful blend of art and ancient architecture. As we explore these historic lands, we can see why the country has so many UNESCO World Heritage Sites. 

Through this lecture you will come to appreciate the historical significance Turkey has played to world civilization. Starting in cosmopolitan Istanbul; explore the ancient site of Pergamon and white marble streets of Greco-Roman Ephesus; and continue to the unique landscapes and cave dwellings of Cappadocia's enchanting valleys.   Course #31265.

WOMEN ARTISTS OF FIN-DE-SIECLE PARIS

With its lively cabarets and cultural life, Paris in the late 19th century witnessed an extraordinary flourishing of the arts. Many women now left the confines of the home to take on new identities as professional artists, and many art schools in Paris, such as the Académie Julian, were expressly set up to train female artists.This series of three lectures will trace the work of some of the leading women artists of this period, notably Rosa Bonheur, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot and Camille Claudel.

Cost: $40 for all three or $15 drop-in per lecture. Register at 604-925-7270 (course #29826) or online.
