Art Appreciation

This group visits all sorts of exhibitions and venues covering a wide spectrum of artistic taste.

In the last year we have been to Norwich Castle & Strangers Hall, Voewood House, Kew Gardens for the Dale Chihuly glass sculptures, Tate Britain for Van Gogh, David Parr House in Cambridge, Cley 19, Birdscapes Gallery nr. Holt & the Shell Museum and the Jenny Pickford exhibition of glass and steel sculptures at Pensthorpe.

We finish this year (2019) with a visit to Christmas at Chatsworth House.

We normally travel by car, bus or train and usually enjoy a lunch together, hopefully broadening our horizons and learning at the same time, in good company with like minded friends.

We always welcome suggestions and ideas for future visits and we endeavour to keep you updated on what is happening on the Art scene both locally and nationally.
