THE DISCOVERING ART STUDY GROUP mainly studies painting, although is interested in all forms of art.
The monthly talks are presented by members except in August when traditionally the group hires a coach to visit a gallery or art collection outside London. A visit may also be arranged at any time should there be an exhibition of particular interest in, say, Cambridge or Birmingham.
A particular school, era, or aspect of painting is studied in depth each year by a small focus group, and its findings usually presented to the main meeting.
Members naturally follow London exhibitions with interest, and the group subscribes to the National Gallery bi-monthly programme. Other programmes and lists of current and future exhibitions are available at meetings.
Two members run the library, others provide the technology, and everyone helps in some way to ensure the group's success.
If you would like to visit Discovering Art, please contact the Convenor.
Google have recently launched a web site which applies the well known Streetview techniques to many world-wide art galleries. The use can take a 'walk' round the chosen gallery and view a high resolution photograph of any selected painting, Galleries include the Tate Britain, National Gallery, Rijksmuseum, Museum of Modern Art and many others.
