Look Groups create a space to learn about art and artists and enjoy talking about art in all its forms. Because each group is led by its members, the conversations are steered by what interests the group and can take many forms. One meeting might explore various artworks connected by a theme, another might listen to different perspectives on an artist through films or presentations. Some groups travel to visit an exhibition or hear from an artist about their work in a particular medium.
Look Groups are hosted in public spaces such as a community centre, library, café, or arts venue. Wherever there is art (including online), there is an opportunity for people to look, talk and discover with others.
Kestle Barton is interesting in hosting a local Look Group on The Lizard.
This meeting, on Saturday 21 October, aims to bring together local residents who might be interested in starting and/or attending such a group. This is an initial meeting to gauge interest and discuss the various ways such a group could function with Kestle Barton. We would be looking to actually launch the group in the new season, at the end of March 2024.
Being in a Look Group is a wonderful way to make new friendships whilst learning about art. Members say they enjoy the discussions that come from bringing together different perspectives and ideas; they value the freedom to contribute feelings about art in conversations where there are no right or wrong answers.
If you are interested in the prospect of meeting up regularly at Kestle Barton to discuss art, ideas and experience the many inspirations that our ‘centre for contemporary arts’ might have to offer, then please come along and introduce yourself on the day. No booking is required.
