Art appreciation group articles

Group report

This is an article published in the Spring 2017 edition of the Hayling Island U3A newsletter...

Since our last report of a year ago, we have been looking at more pictures. These included a revised selection of Abstract Impressionism from 10 years ago; a retrospective look back at some of the art we covered in our first 10 years; and the works of Fried Kahlo, a Mexican painter of the early 20th century – better known in North America than over here. We also revisited the life and works of our own David Hockney who is currently showing at the Original Tate Gallery.

I have heard recently of the demise of some long established groups. Since the Autumn, our group has lost three members and gained three new ones. As an Art Appreciation group I regard that as a "Renaissance". Currently, we have two vacancies.
