The Painters Yorke

Come enjoy a relaxing mid-day, mid-week tea at the historic Custom House Maritime Museum with splendid sandwiches, sumptuous sweets and richly brewed English tea, served along with soothing classical music and enriching cultural and historical insights.

The Painters Yorke - The Good God is in the Detail

For your afternoon’s enjoyment, we visit a rich, though subtle niche of oil-on-canvas painting style.  Through examples of a pair of ship portraits in our collection -- one painted by a father and the other by his son, whom he taught his craft, we will explore the austere details of their lives, in contrast to the highly disciplined style of painting in which their work expresses a thrilling attention to nearly invisible levels of detail – reinforcing the practice of an age old belief that whatever one does should be done thoroughly.

Tickets for TEA #6 now rescheduled for March 15th, 2018 are available by phone or email.
