Wednesday, 9 October 2019 - Art Appreciation Presentation on Art in the Landscape by Angie Grain from Ilkley 10.30am - The Old Girls School, Sherburn in Elmet

A reminder about the Presentation on Art in the Landscape by Angie Grain from the Ilkley u3a on WEDNESDAY 9 OCTOBER 2019 at 10.30 am. The Old Girls School, Sheburn in  Elmet.  Please can you let me know if you are coming to this  Presentation so that I can let them know how many people will be attending as well as refreshments.

This is the first time we have invited  a member from another u3a group to talk to us. I am sure it will be a very enjoyable morning  and I hope members will support it.

As part of our Networking with the Yorkshire & Humber Region,we have invited Angie Grain from Ilkley u3a to do a presentation on Art in the Landscape.

This is a look at ways that man has made his mark in the landscape in different ways through time. It is not an academic treatise, more an opportunity to open up discussions and a chance to see  some good pictures.

We will meet in the Old Girls School at 10.30 for coffee, tea and biscuits when we can discuss some of our past visits and at 11.30 Angie will start her presentation, which will last approx an hour.

Regards.

Wednesday, 11 December 2019 - Art Appreciation Visit - Van Gogh - The Immersive Experience 11.00am - York. St. Mary's, Castlegate YO1 9RN

SO FAR 11 MEMBERS HAVE SAID THEY WANT TO GO. THIS MEANS THAT THE  PRICE WILL BE £8 PLUS £3 FOR THE VR EXPERIENCE. IF ANYONE ELSE WOULD LIKE TO GO TO THIS EVENT PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY FRIDAY 20 SEPTEMBER

Van Gogh - The Immersive Experience Have you ever dreamt of stepping into a painting? To become completely immersed in the work before you, making reality around you fade into the new world created by the artist? 

Thanks to the cutting edge virtual projection you will become a part of the spectacular universe of Vincent Van Gogh. The experience will let you discover the life of the artist in a new way. You will participate in a unique sound and light show that will immerse you in the world renowned of Vincent Van Gogh.

THE VR EXPERIENCE. At the end of the exhibition, will take you even deeper into the life of the artist in Arles. You will travel through 8 works and their sources of inspiration: Vincent's room, the meadows, the forest, the village ad ending with Starry Night over the Rhone River.....

I have made enquiries with one of the organisers about us going as a group and here are the details

price per ticket for a group of 20 + is £6.50 .

price per ticket for group of 10+ is £8.00.

Normal price is £11 per ticket for concessions. The  VR experience will be priced at £2.50 each instead of the usual £3. (you dont have to do the VR but I will want to know before I book)

The price includes 35 minutes immersive experience, access to the galleries, as well as to the draw and display area. The VR experience includes 10 headsets, thus large groups will need to be staggered for entrance to this 11 minute experience.

Oftentimes visitors will remain in the immersive experience for longer than 35 minutes as it runs on a loop and there is much tosee and absorb,. There is no time limit, and guests can remain as long as they wish.

The average dwell time for visitors who visit all galleries read all displays, and do the VR experience, in approximately 1 hour

As I have to book and pay for this visit in advance, please let me know asap if you are interested in going.

Many thanks.
