About the group

The aim of the group is to discuss chosen artists and art movements to enable an appreciation of art history.

The monthly meetings involve an illustrated talk on key artists with the group members joining in the discussion of individual works of art.

 There are also organised trips to art galleries and museums throughout the year. Our last visit was on 14th November 2016, when we visited the Royal Academy in London to see an exhibition on the lesser known Belgian artist, James Ensor.

On Friday, 3rd February, Pam will give a talk on the Russian Revolution and its effect on Russian Art, prior to the planned visit to the Royal Academy. There is still one ticket available for this exhibition.

On Monday, 13th February 2017 we plan to visit the Royal Academy again via the Winslow Bus to see the exhibition: Revolution – Russian Art 1917 to 1932.

On Friday, 3rd March, the talk will be about The Glasgow Boys.

On Friday, 7th April, Tina Brown will be presenting an in depth study of Picasso’s “Guernica”.

 New members are always welcome.
