ART APPRECIATION – THE HERMITAGE
Thursday, 27 September 2018 at 14:00
Hermitage Foundation, Lausanne
The painter Henri Manguin may not be as well known as other Fauvists but he was an important member of this group, loved colour and was referred to by the poet Apollinaire as the ‘voluptuous painter’. His work reflects the joys of being alive and a happy sensuality; it features nudes, Mediterranean landscapes, domestic scenes and still lifes, all with a glorious use of colour. Come and join the art group on Thursday, September 27th to enjoy this exhibition. We’ll be meeting at the door of the Hermitage at 14:00, and if any of you would like to have lunch first, the restaurant L’Esquisses, on the site, is available, reservations recommended.
Please sign up at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us.
OUT TO LUNCH – RESTAURANT LUIGIA
Luigia, Rue Saint Pierre 3, Lausanne
Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 12:00
Our first stop this fall on the Out-2-Lunch restaurant tour is the popular Italian restaurant, Luigia. Their reputation is their pizza (recognized by Italian food and wine publications as one of the top 10 pizzerias in the world), but the menu has an abundance of other delicious dishes sourced from “the best of Italy” authentic products. The restaurant is situated in what was previously a cinema, and the bright marquee lights are still the beacon that drawn in the pizza-loving crowds. Sound interesting? We hope you can join us!
