Thanks for giving a great welcome to our recent graduates from Norwich University of the Arts who have been invited to join the group for a two year period, talking about their art practice.
Thanks to everyone who made our first meeting of the Autumn on Tuesday 5 September such a lively evening, with plenty of art to see, from group members and others.
Please note that everyone is welcome to bring art among to open meetings – with the next one of these planned for Tuesday 9 January 2024.
All welcome come along to meetings in months of January – April, also June, and September – December
May is for members and proposed members only, and there are no meetings in July and August.
2023 meetings – these are usually the first Tuesday of the month.
Very pleased to announce that artist Simon Bill will be giving a talk – the venue for this will be the Undercroft, during our group exhibition in June:
The subject of Visual Perception featured strongly in the teaching of art until the 80s, when it was dropped because it was not commensurate with Critical Theory. The orthodoxy of Critical Theory is in decline, whilst the study of perception as a branch of neuroscience has advanced rapidly. The response to these developments has been slow in art schools – this talk offers an introduction to Visual Perception and a survey of the subject as it stands today.
