Art and History Talks

Group leaders

Brian Nicholls

Cheda Panajotovic

We are a group of like minded people who have worked with art and its history for much of our lives and would like to share our love of this exciting and controversial subject with the U3A members.
There are bi-weekly presentations, alternating Art and History. Members of the group give fully illustrated presentations to share their knowledge of artists, artistic movements, and explain the path of developments and the reasons for change.
We welcome participation from the audience too, so do come along with your opinions and let us enjoy and take from this meeting new ideas and enlightenment on an extremely colourful subject.
We meet every other Monday at Espai La Senieta – see list of talks for exact dates and times
