Modern Art History
Monthly 4th Wednesday 2.00pm
Meetings are held at premises having Disabled Access
The group began meeting in 2005 with aim of looking at movements and artists from Impressionism onwards. Over the past 10 years, we have worked our way up to contemporary artists. However, the addition of new members each year means that a number have missed artists and art movements that they would have liked to have studied. The result has been the development of a more eclectic programme. Since 2015/16, half the meetings are on post 1945 artists and half on revisiting earlier artists.
In a typical meeting, 2 members will volunteer to talk about a particular artist/movement and show pictures for the whole group to discuss. Time allowing, another member will also talk about a particular picture/art work.
With the aid of a laptop and projector, members of the Group introduce various artists and movements to the rest of us as a basis for lively discussion. No previous knowledge is assumed and all are welcome.
Attached are the current programme and details of artists/movements examined since 2005. Our coordinator, Ro Francis will be delighted to talk to anyone interested in joining us about the group
