Art Appreciation, Stoke Bishop

What it is: In normal circumstances, members of the group (or sometimes of another U3A group) give talks on art of interest to them, always well illustrated on our screen. Each individual volunteer speaker has his or her own style of presentation and you will find a wide variety of subjects.

When it is: Friday mornings, fortnightly to alternate with Art History (many people belong to both groups).
Meetings are suspended until further notice, but the Autumn 2021 season is scheduled to start on September 24th. We very much hope that by then it will be possible to resume having meetings in person at St Mary’s once again, but it remains to be seen what the practical arrangements might have to be. There will be more information by the time of the Annual Bulletin .

Where it is: In normal circumstances meetings are at St Mary's Church Rooms, Mariners Drive, Stoke Bishop. New members are welcome, we meet in a large hall and there is room for all who wish to attend. Access without steps and a hearing loop are available on request.

New members are welcome and should register by email to Peter Farmer (pjfarmer@blueyonder.co.uk)

Talks that await us when meetings are able to resume include:

Hard Times: Social Realism in Victorian art (David Hooper)

Vanessa Bell with her Bloomsbury friends and lovers (David Ploss)

Salvador Dali: Master, Monster or Mountebank? (Martha Perriam, Weston-super-Mare U3A)

A Tour of Scandinavian Artists (Chris Rivett)

Alfred Wallis - St Ives fisherman and painter (Keren Durant)

Our programmes offer opportunities to discover the work of artists you may never have heard of before and to come to like things you might previously have thought uninteresting. The Convenor, Brenda Hugill, may be contacted by using the pigeon "send a message" link.
