The Group Co-ordinator is Alan Somerville. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month at 2.30pm, sometimes visiting an exhibition or other art-worthy venue, and sometimes at the home of Anne Wallis, 7 Easthill, Frome, BA11 5JW (Tel 01373 463378).

During 2016, amongst other things, we visited Salisbury Cathedral where one of our members explained some of the fascinating architectural aspects of this magnificent building. At another meeting members brought items of interest from their homes, such as paintings, antique silver, embroidery and souvenirs from distant travels. It was very interesting to hear the stories behind these items.

We also much enjoyed a visit to Victoria Art Gallery in Bath to view Peter Brown's exhibition - "A Painter's travels". Known as 'Pete the Street' he paints outdoor scenes of well-loved Bath locations, as well as from his travels abroad.

In January we met up for a New Year lunch at The Mason's Arms where we enjoyed a good chat about our activities during 2016, and started to make plans for 2017. These will include looking at DVDs of some of the "Great Artists" series from Channel 5, and in particular the one about Pieter Bruegel, to prepare us for a visit to "Bruegel: Defining a Dynasty" at the Holburne Museum in Bath.

If you have any other queries about the group,please contact Alan on 01373 472426 or by email to adamstrinator@yahoo.co.uk or alan44jo46@gmail.com
