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.
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.
