Craft :

The craft group are still meeting on the second and fourth Mondays of every month and there are a good number of regular attenders.  Members are generally doing their “own thing”, but some are learning how to crochet and seem to be thoroughly enjoying it.  One of our members gave a demonstration on card making at our last meeting and we are, hopefully, going to make some Christmas cards at our next meeting.  If you are interested in joining the group please phone me on 01872 858779.

Art - Falmouth:

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

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 History:

We meet at 10.45am on the first Thursday of the month at the Conservative Club in Truro.

At December’s meeting Laurence Smith's topic was the paintings of Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Laurence gave a virtuoso performance of the 5 'E's: enthusiasm, education, entertainment, erudition and excellence. And all without the aid of PowerPoint! He did however have a couple of props to illustrate some of his points. One of the first things we learned was literally to change our point of view by viewing a painting upside down, as a mirror image, or through your legs (don't try the last one at home!). Reproductions of Bruegel's paintings are so much smaller than the originals that we lose sight of the details, and the details are significant, as Laurence demonstrated. Besides the paintings, Bruegel made many etchings. We've invited Laurence back on February 1st to talk about Bruegel's etchings, some of which he has used as the basis of his own paintings.  

(Please note there will be NO MEETING in JANUARY, but we will resume on Thursday February 1st.)
