Art Appreciation, Stoke Bishop
Latest news: We are overjoyed to have returned to meeting regularly in person at our normal venue, albeit with some restrictions.
What it is: Members of the group (or sometimes of another U3A group) give talks on art of interest to them, always well illustrated on our screen. There is a wide variety of subjects, often allowing us to discover the work of artists we may never have heard of before and to come to like works we might previously have thought uninteresting.
When it is: Friday mornings at 10.00 for 10.30 am, fortnightly to alternate with Art History (many people belong to both groups).
Where it is: St Mary's Church Rooms, Mariners Drive, Stoke Bishop. The arrangements will be as normal as possible in the current pandemic situation, but measures to ensure everyone's safety will be in force - Group members have been notified of details. We regret that coffee will not be available.
New members would normally be very welcome - we meet in a large hall and without the pandemic there would be room for all who wish to attend. However, a requirement for social distancing now places a restriction of 65 on the number of people attending (on a first come first served basis).
The Convenor, Brenda Hugill, may be contacted by using the pigeon "send a message" link above right. The Leader, David Norris, arranges the programme.
