Art - Falmouth:

Meeting every Monday at the Athenaeum Club, Kimberley Park, Falmouth TR11 3QL between 1:30 - 3:30pm.

U3A FALMOUTH ART GROUP
The Falmouth Art Group goes from strength to strength.  At the last count there were twenty members, most of whom attend weekly, apart from the school holidays.  In fact, we could say we are full for the time being and will start a ‘waiting list’.
            It is a huge privilege to be allowed to meet in the house that was built as Charles Napier Hemy’s family home, which is now the Athenaeum Club in Falmouth.  The light is amazing.
            There are some extremely talented artists in the group and it is rewarding to notice how others improve and grow in confidence.  Last year we held an exhibition in the Methodist Church foyer and hope to do so again this year.
            Above all, we have fun!

Art 1 - Truro:

PAINTING WITH FRIENDS

painting Are you looking for a Painting Group?
Then you are welcome to come and join us on
Thursday afternoons, from 1.30 to 4.30pm at Perranarworthal
Village Hall. We are a friendly group,
working on a 'help each other' basis and have discovered
how encouraging and creative this can
be. We respect one another's individuality so that
each of us feels free to develop our own style of
painting.
We paint in all media, all abilities are welcome and
tea and cakes are served halfway through the afternoon
to say nothing of a self-indulgent event
before the Christmas break! The room has good
light and there's plenty of parking just outside.
We start again after the Easter break on Thursday
3rd May. Newcomers are very welcome,
whether you are just a beginner or have been
painting for years… Just come and bring your
own painting materials.

Art History:

The group meets on the first Thursday of the month at the Conservative Club in Truro. The meeting starts upstairs at 10.45am, but tea, coffee and biscuits are available (for a small charge) in the downstairs bar from 10.00. Everyone is welcome, no need to book.
In September we met at the Falmouth Art Gallery where Henrietta Boex gave an introduction to the then current exhibition ‘Stuff and Nonsense.’  The exhibits varied, from works on paper to automata, historical and recent, and included works by both established artists and community groups. Henrietta explained how long it takes and how much work is involved in curating an exhibition of this kind – two years is not unusual.
On Thursday, October 3rd, we’ll be showing a DVD on Renaissance Painting (1250 – 1450) – The early Italian Renaissance explained through its artists and buildings.

HELP
The group has an extensive catalogue of resources created by the late Bob Jeary, which continue to provide us with excellent material for talks. Mostly these are on DVDs, often with accompanying written texts. But we also have a number of VHS tapes with enigmatic titles like 'Skelton at 70'. VHS tapes have all but died out, but some wise soul may have bought the bits of equipment in anticipation to covert their own collection. We would very much like to convert these VHS tapes to digital format so that we might use them in the future. If you are out there, wise soul, would you be prepared to convert our tapes?
