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.


The meetings restart on Friday, 5th January at 10.15 a.m. with a talk on William Morris and his talented but less well-known daughter, May Morris. On Tuesday, 16th January there will be a trip to the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow for a curator’s conducted tour entitled “Meet the Man” on William Morris, followed by a visit to an exhibition on the life and art of May Morris. This visit is fully booked.

The talk on Friday, 2nd February will be on the art collection of King Charles I, much of which was sold off under Oliver Cromwell. This will be followed by a visit to the Royal Academy on Tuesday, 13th February to view many of the missing artworks currently on loan from galleries around the world. Seats are still available on the Winslow Bus on a first come first served basis. Admission to the exhibition is £16. Please contact the Group Coordinator for more details.

On Friday, 2nd March, Tina Brown will be giving a talk on Modigliani. We are proposing to visit Tate Modern on Tuesday, 13 March to see an Exhibition on Modigliani’s work. Please contact the Group Coordinator for more details.

New members are always welcome.
