Guest speaker will be Andrew Mackenzie OAM, Art Historian, Lecturer, Heritage Consultant, Archivist and Author of many books including the life of Walter Withers (1854-1914).  At this meeting Andrew will talk about Walter Withers in Eltham.

There are a number of strong connections between the Withers Family and early Eltham.  Not only did Withers establish his home in the township in 1902, he painted a number of his significant paintings around Eltham and the local area.  Including local butcher and returned serviceman William Capewell in his famous painting The Drover.
