An Evening Of Artistic Insight With Julian Cooper

Join internationally acclaimed artist Julian Cooper, for an evening of exemplary food, glorious wine and artistic insight, on Wednesday 09th August, at Grasmere’s Forest Side.

Cooper will chat about his artist career, his longstanding influences and the Lake District, which has inspired both himself and the other members of the artistic dynasty to which he belongs over the years.

As a happy coincidence Julian marks his 70th birthday this summer with his third exhibition of the year, ‘Full Circle’, which will showcase a body of work spanning his career as well as more recent artistic works at the Heaton Cooper Studio in Grasmere.

Julian will discuss this exhibition and show several works from his recent London exhibition ‘Upstream’ during the evening at Forest Side. Providing guests with a unique personal insight into the man and his art during the evening.

Alongside this Forest Side’s head chef Kevin Tickle will create a unique six course menu, paired with accompanying wines chosen by Forest Side’s head sommelier Charles Carron Brown.

Join us for what promises to be an insightful discovery of Cooper’s work and a unique perspective to the place of his birth, a landscape that holds a physical beauty and a wealth of memorable experiences from a lifetime of watching, thinking and learning about the natural world.

Dinner is priced at £145 per person and will be hosted in the Forest Side’s Private Dining room for up to 8 guests. The evening starts at 7pm with a glass of fizz, giving guests the opportunity to mingle before sitting down with Julian to enjoy a convivial and informative evening and of course a specially prepared menu created by Kevin Tickle with accompanying wines, coffee and petit fours.
