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.


Tuesday, 25 July – Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge to visit their collection and current exhibition: “Sea to Shore”, featuring work by Christopher (Kit) Wood and the naive Cornish painter, Alfred Wallis. Entry is free but they ask us to each give a donation.
