The Group Co-ordinator is Elizabeth Pearson 01373 469739.

The group meets at 2.30pm on the SECOND TUESDAY. 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.

We have settled well into our new accommodation at St Mary's Church Hall (Innox Hill BA11 2LN) - a short walk from the town centre with free parking, and refreshment and IT facilities - we share these costs. The new IT equipment now available to us is certainly adding an extra dimension to our meetings, we even managed to press all of the right buttons to enjoy a virtual show from The Holburne of "Thomas Lawrence : Coming of Age" - one of Britain's greatest portrait painters.

Recent sessions led by members have included Piero della Francesca, El Greco and Monet, and, by way of a change, a 'Bring Your Own' afternoon when we shared treasures from home, and the stories and memories behind them.

Plans for the future include a session led by a keen Europhile, 'using our multiple European residences and visits elsewhere as a basis for a selection of artistic topics which have caught our interest (including the unusual and quirky!)'

...and the current Henry Moore exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in Bruton, together with a forthcoming exhibition at The Holburne in Bath "Rodin & Degas : Impressionist Sculpture" have encouraged another member to focus our attention on sculpture.

New members are always welcome, so if you are interested in 'discovering art' with us, please do contact Elizabeth Pearson on 01373 469739.
