Forthcoming Events -

Tuesday, 18 June 2019 - Combined visit of the Art Appreciation group and Sherburn in Elmet Local History 8.30am - Lincoln

The Sherburn Local History Society have invited us to go with them to visit Lincoln. There will be no museum or gallery visits planned for our Art Appreciation group, therefore leaving us the day to do want we want! I for one, will be visiting the beautiful Cathedral.
Jean Mooney has organised a coach to take us to Lincoln, leaving Sherburn at 8.30 with a stop of the way and leaving Lincoln for home at 4 p.m. we will be dropped off in the area of the Cathedral, Castle and Museum. There might be a shuttle bus that goes downhill to the main shopping areas.

To reserve a place contact ASAP the Secretary, Jean Mooney 01977 683749 or 07967 640383 or email jeanelmet98@gmail.com and arrange WITH JEAN to pay a non refundable deposit of £14 after she has confirmed with you that there is a place on the coach. Then you can send her a cheque made payable to Sherburn in Elmet Local History Society.


Wednesday, 10 July 2019 - Yorkshire Sculpture Park 11.00am - Wakefield WF4 4JX

Visit to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Here a little information about the exhibitions that will be on when we visit on Wednesday 10 July

As part of Yorikshire Sculpture international this summer the Park is presenting seven major sculptures by Damien Hirst. Several sculptures will be on display all around the Park. YSI publicises that they promise that this exhibition will be something special, memorable and game changing for Yorishire's growing scene!

Kimsooja: To Breathe - The artist transforms the historic chapel with To Breathe. an enthralling installation using light and mirrors and the latest in a series of projects exploring meditative qualities of space.

Thukral and Tagra invite families, friends and strangers to wrestle with the issues faced by farmers in India through their immaculately conceived installation Bread, Circuses and TBD, which inaugurates the Weston Gallery

There is of course several more exhibitions and if you google ysp.org.uk you will be able to see for yourselves juist what is exhibited on 10 July.

I HAVE PRE-BOOKED AN ART AND LANDSCAPE TOUR. PRICE IS £80. HOWEVER THERE WILL BE NO ADDITIONAL CAR PARKING FEE WHICH IS £12 PER CAR, SO IT DOESNT WORK OUT TOO EXPENSIVE FOR US.  The individual cost will depend on how many people go and I will let you know what the results of that are before we book. Car sharing from the Eversley Centre.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP IF YOU WANT TO GO. I HAVE ASKED THE TOUR GUIDE TO PARTICULARLY TAKE US TO and TALK ABOUT THE DAMIEN HIRST SCULPTURES AS WELL AS TALKING TO US ABOUT THE OTHER EXHIBITIONS.

The Sculpture Park visit is always a favourite with our group and never disappoints!

Pease email if you want to go.

Regards
