History of Art 2

OBJECTIVES AND MEETINGS

The group was formed in September 2017. Our aim is to share our love of art in all its forms and examine its history. We do this by choosing a theme or a specific time period . We meet at Hacketts upstairs room on the 3rd Monday of the month 2.30-4.30. We pay £2 each towards the cost of the room (£10 for 2 hours). Each member chooses an aspect of the topic and gives a short (about 10 minutes) presentation to the rest of the group via printed or digital material.

TOPICS

Topics we have previously discussed include:

  • Art from 1900-1950
  • Rivers
  • Dutch art of the 17th century
  • Symbolism in art
  • art and nature
  • Islamic art.

OUTINGS

We have visited an exhibition at Compton Verney on "Whistler and Nature" and hope to do more visits in the future.

NEW MEMBERS

We welcome new members. If you would be interested in joining us please contact us via the Groups Administrator using the link on the Contacts page of this website or in the Lower Hall at the Thursday afternoon General Meetings.
