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.
Forthcoming visits during 2020 include:
19th March : A visit to Towneley Hall, Burnley, for a guided tour of the house and Art Gallery. The visit includes coach transport, coffee on arrival and lunch.
16th April : A visit to the GLASFORM studio, in the heart of the Fylde coast. We will see an hour’s demonstration of glassblowing, in an informal setting and using techniques hundreds of years old. We will travel by coach and go to a local café for lunch.
21st May : A visit and guided tour to explore Middleton’s “Golden Cluster of Heritage”. We will start with a guided tour of the Grade I listed Medieval St Leonards Church. After lunch we will visit other Grade II listed buildings designed by the Middleton architect Edgar Wood.
All are welcome to join us and no prior knowledge of art is necessary, just an interest in learning about and enjoying art.
