Elias Ashmole: London's Forgotten Adept
Lecture - Ruth Clydesdale
Elias Ashmole (1617-1692) is famed for founding the first public museum, the Ashmolean, a fact that has overshadowed his importance in the history of occultism. He was the astrological advisor to Charles II, an early freemason, an alchemical secret-holder. He collected rare esoteric texts and even saved a fellow astrologer from the gallows.
Tonight we celebrate Ashmole’s secret occult life.
Ruth Clydesdale is a writer and astrologer with interest in the history of astrology and its links to magic, alchemy and art.
Price: £7 Ring 0207 419 8507 or book online
Time: 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start.

Free Painters and Sculptors came into existence in the early 1950's as a splinter group from the Institute of Contemporary Arts. It was initially a group of painters who wished to break free of the stereotype that the ICA wished to impose on its members, it attracted other members and became organised as on a charity and corporate basis.
FPS has always maintained high standards with strict selection procedures for its exhibitions at a variety of fine venues including the Mall Galleries, the Barbican, Bankside Gallery and many others.
In the 1970's FPS gained support from The Society for Protection of Animals Abroad which leased part of its premises to FPS for admin and exhibition purposes.
Applications for membership, subject to selection , are welcome. we are looking for new members who are practising artists, or people who are interested in art who would like to help support FPS through admin, organising and publicising exhibitions etc.
We provide exhibition opportunities annually for members at various venues, mostly around London, we also provide a website where members work can be shown and sold, a blog and a regular newsletter which both publish articles from members.
