Members and their guests Only.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak until further notice all future Art Lover meetings are cancelled.
ART LOVER'S GROUP VENUE is the United Reformed Church, Community Hall, St George's Road, St. Annes (the same location as U3A General Meetings)
The meeting day is the FIRST Tuesday of each month, with a 10 am start.
After many successful years John Sutcliffe has decided to retire from his role as Art Lovers Group Leader. John's presentations were based on his vast knowledge and experience and covered the whole spectrum of western art. We are extremely grateful for the windows he has opened into artists' lives and their work and for the insights and anecdotes he has given us, but he wishes to step back now and has asked Rob Fielder to take over the reins. Rob has agreed to accept the role but will be counting on John's help, and notes, as we move forward and are finally allowed to reconvene as a group. Until then, however, we will have to make do with our online communications.
New members welcome. Some of our members joined with little or no knowledge of art whilst others are extremely knowledgeable and well-travelled. Our aim is to share and learn from each other. You are most welcome to join us.
Two long-established groups "Art of the Italian Renaissance" and "Art Appreciation" merged; bringing the strengths of both of these, we renamed as "Art Lovers". We have gone in new and exciting directions.
We have been fortunate in our range of outside speakers who have included a University Lecturer and a Curator from Lancashire Museums Service and a speaker from the Fylde Decorative and Fine Arts Society (DFAS) covering the current 'Tagging the Treasures Project'.
We have a programme full of promise. Hugh Ellwood, an experienced and valued lecturer, began our programme with the "Birth of the Renaissance" and gave us a time line which we have been following (see link). We hope to enjoy involving ourselves with learning about other European artists and movements.
We make a small charge of £2 per meeting to cover room hire costs.
We look forward to seeing you.
