This month’s talk ‘What is Art and who decides what is good art?’ was given by Philip Powell from Philips Art Gallery Altrincham. Philip illustrated his talk with a varied collection of paintings from his own art dealing business. There was a great deal of discussion as to whether good art was that which gave pleasure to the viewer or whether it was decided by the art experts who valued it. An interesting exercise was trying to work out the most expensive of the paintings he had brought to show us.
Arrangements for the several outings planned for the Autumn, including a visit and talk at Arighi Bianchi, the Terracotta Warriors, Curzons cinema for the ballet and of course the Christmas meal were also discussed.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday October 3rd at 7.30pm in Lower Peover School, it is a produce show and members are invite to submit items of cookery, craft, flower arrangements, photographs and this year your favourite hat. We would love to welcome anyone who may be interested to come and join us.
