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). On what would have been our regular meeting dates, September 25th and fortnightly thereafter, an extract from a past Art Appreciation talk will be emailed to group members.
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.
Meetings are suspended until further notice. From 25th September, group members will be emailed fortnightly with an extract from a past talk. New members are welcome and should register by email to Peter Farmer (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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.
