Dates for your Diary
July 2020
Wed Jul 8thArt and artistsModern British Art - paintings, sculpture or vases!
What is your opinion, with examples of anything you’ve seen in a gallery or in magazines?
Anything from about 1960 (well that seems modern to me!).
This will probably be a Zoom meeting, we’ll assess the situation closer to the date.
Guests very welcome.

Wed Aug 12thArt and artistsMany art galleries around the world are streaming their current or past exhibitions online.
Please tell us about one or two that you have looked at during lockdown.

Guests very welcome.
