Art Appreciation

2nd Monday 10.00am for coffee, 10.30am start, finish by 12pm

We are a very large, lively and enterprising group and have had various themes over the past 20 years since our inception.
This is very flexible; adapted to encompass the members talks. In keeping with the U3A ethos ‘Those who learn teach: those who teach learn’, we do not have professional lecturers, but enjoy sharing our knowledge and research with each other. Our members may choose to do a whole morning's presentation or just part of the morning with others. In the past, we have shared our love and enthusiasm for our favourite galleries and collections, or our favourite artists. We looked at Portraiture one year and the Renaissance another. This year is a mixture of members interests.

Visits to galleries complement our talks and in April 2018 we visited the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and in October we had a five-day residential study tour based in Winchester and visited art collections in south Hampshire and West Sussex.

In 2019, we are planning two day trips: to tour the The Wallace Collection in April and to Kew Gardens in August, to see the Chihuly Glass Sculptures. These trips replace our usual monthly Art Appreciation meeting.

The Group has over 100 members, averaging an attendance of 70 per meeting. We can accept a few new members. Please contact Margaret Thompson SGL.
