The Art Appreciation group attends art events on the third Thursday of each month.
The usual format is a guided visit to art galleries, artist's studios etc. with transport provided where necessary. These are popular events, generally for 20-30 members and where possible refreshments are arranged with the venue.
Visits being considered for 2019 include: the Lowry Gallery, Whitworth Gallery, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, the Manchester Gallery, York Gallery, a guided walk around Manchester's modern architecture - and more.
In early 2017 we formed a subgroup of members interested in studying art in greater depth. This resulted in enjoyably lively and relaxed meetings where every member was happy to contribute presentations. This has now become a separate group "The Art Study Group" and further information can be found on its own group page.
All are welcome to join us and no prior knowledge of art is necessary, just an interest in learning about and enjoying art.
