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. Recent meetings and trips included an "Exhibition on Screen" viewing (in Bath) of "Degas: Passion for Perfection" from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, and also a session on Gainsborough in preparation for a visit to the exhibition at the Holburne "Gainsborough and the Theatre".

One member 'took' us to the North-East to the fascinating Auckland Castle Coal Mining Art Gallery, and another to the south of France to experience La Chapelle du Rosaire de Vence (designed by Matisse).

Future plans include a DVD about the work of David Hockney, and a group visit to Holy Trinity Church for a session on Edward Burne-Jones and his amazing windows right in the heart of Frome.

We do 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
