Art appreciation

Availability: Open to new members

Group leader: Peter Hill - Contact Peter


This group has been running for over eight years, since the foundation of our U3A, and we still have four of the original members. Over that time, the art we have discussed has ranged, in period, from the Early Renaissance to the latest exhibitions, and, in style, from the realism of Constable to the abstract art of the 1840s. Besides meetings where we have a presentation of an artist or school of the speaker's choice, we also watch a few videos and visit art and sculpture exhibitions.

We are trying to learn more about art and artists, as a self help group. At each meeting, one of our members gives a presentation on a subject of their own choosing. The internet is a very useful resource and provides most of the text and pictures for our presentations. The Hampshire library system also has much useful material. We expect all members to play an active part in the presentations.
