Main meeting – May 10th

Birds Beasts and Flowers in Art

We warmly welcomed one of our members, Peggy Verrall, who gave a talk on “Birds, Beasts and Flowers in Art”.  We were entertained and educated with a wonderful collection of slides of art throughout the ages from prehistoric cave paintings to more recent times.  Together with Peggy’s  personal musings on the reasons for her choices, we were whisked seamlessly through a wide variety of artistic representations of animals and plants through  different civilisations.
