Our aim is a shared enjoyment of art in all its forms. There are 3 Groups.
Group 2 – Meetings are held in Plaxtol every 3 weeks on Mondays (2.00pm to 4.00pm).
Group 3 – Meetings take place in various members’ houses every third Friday in the month.
Group 3 – Current Situation
We have been “meeting” once a month using Zoom. The normal arrangement of our meetings is for one person to give a presentation on a topic of their choice, followed by a discussion. We decided that arrangement would be more difficult to sustain using Zoom, so we adopted an alternative arrangement, with each person sharing and talking about a work of art for about 10 minutes. With eight of us taking part regularly in the Zoom meeting, that fits well into our normal 2 hour time slot, also allowing time for some more general chat which is appreciated.
We can share the work of art either by holding up an object in front of the camera on a pc/tablet or by using the option within Zoom to share someone’s screen so that we can all see the same image. As our experience with Zoom continues, our meetings run a little more smoothly each time. As well as enjoying learning about a wide-ranging and diverse group of art works, we are also maintaining some valuable social contact, which is important in these difficult times.
We try to engage members who are unable to Zoom by sending them by email information about the artworks covered in the meeting.
