Art & Art History

The Art and Art History Group meet on the 2nd Friday of the month at 10.30 at the Friends Meeting House in Marlborough. Rather than study a particular period, members choose a topic of interest to them.  Sessions can be led by individuals or small teams and while some members use visual aids, this is not essential. Our year is divided into two “terms’, January to July and September to December.

To cover the cost of our meeting room and projector we make a small charge of £1 per session payable in advance at the start of the term.  No previous knowledge of Art or Art History is required.

A list of topics for the coming months is shown below.

08 September Self Portraits Edwina Fogg et al.
13 October Constable Diana Hony
10 November Singer Sargent – Water Colours Derryn Davies
