The Group Co-ordinator is Elizabeth Pearson. The group meets at 2.30pm on the SECOND TUESDAY of the month in the upstairs Meeting Room in Frome Library where we have access to helpful IT and refreshment facilities – we share the costs.

Our aim is literally to 'discover art'. So we share the particular interests of current members and we cover new ground by responding to opportunities as they arise. So recent meetings and trips included an "Exhibition on Screen" viewing (in Bath) from The National Portrait Gallery of "Cezanne : Portraits of a Life", and also a session on Vermeer (included in the ITV series "Great Art"). An exhibition at The Museum of East Asian Art in Bath, of Japanese Netsuke (as in "The Hare with Amber Eyes"), with some items on loan from the British Museum, led to a fascinating session on all things Japanese, and the Royal Academy Exhibition "Charles 1 - King and Collector" prompted a journey through the 1600s, and the development of the Royal Collection.

Future plans include an opportunity to report on and share special art experiences discovered by members over the summer months, and also a session on Gainsborough in anticipation of the forthcoming exhibition at the Holburne "Gainsborough and the Theatre".

The move to the Library means that we now have room for more members, so if you are interested in 'discovering art' with us, please do contact Elizabeth Pearson on 01373 469739 or by email to ianandlizpearson@waitrose.com
