Art Appreciation, Stoke Bishop

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). We do not meet during the Summer and the Autumn 2021 season will start on September 24th.

Where it is: St Mary's Church Rooms, Mariners Drive, Stoke Bishop. We hope that near normal arrangements will be possible, subject to whatever may be the coronavirus security advice at the time.

New members are welcome - we meet in a large hall and normally there would be room for all who wish to attend. However, the pandemic siituation may force us to restrict numbers and those were not on the Group's 2020-21 mailing list should apply for a place by emailing Peter Farmer (click on the name).

The Convenor, Brenda Hugill, may be contacted by using the pigeon "send a message" link above right. Access without steps and a hearing loop are available on request.
