Thursday, 24 January 2019 - Art Appreciation visit to University of Leeds, The Stanley & Audrey Burton Galle 11.30am - Leeds

SEE BELOW TIME ALTERATION OF TALK IN THE GALLERY

We will be visiting The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery in the Parkinson Building of Leeds University on THURSDAY 24 JANUARY. This is a hidden gem at the heart of the University campus. The Gallery offers innovative contemporary exhibitions and displays treasures from the University Art Collection and the University Library Special Collections. The entrance if free. We will have chance to see an exhibition exploring consumer culture sustainability and still life. We will also visit the Treasures of the Brotherton Gallery. The display includes original material written by the Brontes, stunning illuminated medieval manuscripts and rare books from across the globe. The University's Library special collections is the home of hundreds of thousands of rare books, manuscripts, archives and art. There are one or two other exhibitions to see depending on time!
I have arranged for one of the curators to give us a free introductory talk at 11.30 a.m. in the Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery. As you go up the steps of the Parkinson Building (large white building on Woodhouse Lane) go through the door and turn left to the Gallery where we will meet just before 11.30 After our introductory talk we will then explore the different galleries at our leisure.

I suggest that we travel to Leeds by train and then we will go on the bus to the University (bus stops outside the Parkinson Building) If you could get the train from Micklefield at 09.40 - I will get on it at Crossgates at 09.53. If I dont see you all on the train, please meet me at the entrance of the railway station near to Marks and Spencers. after getting off the train. We will then get the bus together and have a coffee at the cafe in the Parkinson Building, before meeting up with the Curator.
Anyone going directly there please meet at the Gallery just before 11.30 am

PLEASE CAN YOU CONFIRM THAT YOU WILL BE GOING ON THIS VISIT TO LEEDS UNIVERSITY AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND TELL ME IF YOU ARE GOING ON THE TRAIN OR MAKING YOUR OWN WAY THERE, SO I CAN GIVE THEM SOME IDEA OF NUMBERS. ALSO PLEASE MAKE A NOTE OF MY MOBILE NO SO YOU CAN CONTACT ME IF YOU NEED TO AND ALSO YOU MIGHT LIKE TO PHONE TO SEE WHERE WE ARE HAVING COFFEE!
Looking forward to seeing you and hope that our Art Appreciation Group will have a cultural and stimulating 2019!
Regards
Sue
