Corona Borealis

The Corona Borealis is one of the few constellation of stars visible with the naked eye. In Europe we refer to it as the Northern Crown and there are references to these stars all the way back to the 2nd century. In art the story of Bacchus and Ariadne often depicts the Northern Crown and in this talk accredited lecturer Mariska Beekenkamp-Wladimiroff explains the story and how we can find it in a Dutch painting from the 17th century. 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Our Societies support hundreds of local arts and heritage projects. Each day we highlight a grant given in 2021.  

The sixth form art department of Prince Henry's High School, Evesham has received a grant from The Arts Society Evesham and Pershore. This grant would enable the art department to fund drawing classes for A-Level students with an experienced local artist.

All donations from the Artvent Calendar will go towards The Arts Society’s grant giving fund, which awards grants to help preserve our artistic heritage, support the skills of artists and makers, and improve access to the arts for all.

I'm on the wrong side of the planet to view this ring of seven stars but tonight, New Year's Eve, I shall go and have a look at the sky anyway.
