Art Appreciation **
|Aim||To meet the interests of the members by visiting art galleries, in Edinburgh or round the Borders, wherever there is an exhibition that we would like to see. When not visiting galleries, we meet in Galashiels Library to hear a talk about an artist or artists or art movement, usually delivered by one of the members. Sometimes, we visit an artist's studio or watch a demonstration by a professional artist.|
|Experience||None needed, just an interest in art.|
|Participation||We hope that members will participate where necessary by doing research into an artist and talking about him/her to the group on the odd occasion when a talk is required.|
|Venue||Galashiels Library, unless we are out visiting.|
|Cost||This varies. We may need to pay for travel, for entry fees, or to hire a room in the library. Sometimes, we hire a guide in one of the Edinburgh Galleries and the cost of £50 is divided among those attending.|
|Meetings||These are varied and, it is hoped, interesting, covering many aspects of art. We meet on the 3rd Friday of the month.|
