AFTV Special Event: Van Gogh and the Seasons

Van Gogh and the Seasons

Members and guests of the AFTV had the pleasure of viewing the NGV’s ‘Van Gogh and the Seasons’ exhibition on Friday 12 May 2017, an event organised by the AFTV under the very capable and tireless leadership of Gretchen Bennett.

After enjoying finger food, drinks and conversation, members and guests were treated, in both French and English, to a chronological and wide-reaching description of Van Gogh’s life and artistic output by Dr Ted Gott.
