BUS TRIP TO ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA FOR
COLOURS OF IMPRESSIONISM : MASTERPIECES FROM THE MUSÉE D'ORSAY, PARIS
TENTATIVE DATE: Wednesday 18 April
More than 65 Impressionist masterpieces from the renowned collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris feature in a major exhibition at the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Colours of Impressionism: Masterpieces from the Musée d’Orsay charts the revolution of colour that lies at the very heart of Impressionism and includes master works by Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne, among many others.
From the dark tones of Manet's Spanish-influenced paintings, to the rich green and blue hues of the French countryside as painted by Cézanne, Monet and Pissarro, to the rosy pigments of Renoir's and Morisot's female figures, the exhibition traces the development of colour in the Impressionists' radical reshaping of painting in the nineteenth century.
Pauline Reid from our Art Group is planning on a 38-seater bus to the city to see this incredible exhibition. If you were in Paris this would be on your Must Do list and now we can do it without travelling to the other side of the world. What an opportunity!
All members and their partners welcome. Early bookings can go to Peter Wood on 8842 1123 or mobile 0411 6623 84 or firstname.lastname@example.org. More details like pricing and confirmation of date, available soon.

TUESDAY 1 MAY:
Last minute change to PETER RABBIT. This film which mixes animation and live action is fun and easy to like. Yes, it's targeted at children but there's a surprising amount of humour on offer for the adult crowd. Feel free to bring a grandchild or just indulge your inner child.
TUESDAY 5 JUNE:
THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL SOCIETY Despite the name it is a drama. London, 1946. Juliet (Lily James), a charismatic and free-spirited writer receives a letter from a member of a mysterious literary club started in Nazi-occupied Guernsey. Her curiosity piqued, Juliet decides to visit the island. There she meets the delightfully eccentric members of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, including Dawsey (Michiel Huisman), the rugged and intriguing farmer who wrote her the letter. As the secrets from their wartime past unfold, Juliet's growing attachment to the island, the book club and her affection for Dawsey will change the course of her life forever.
Everybody was invited to share lunch with friends then sit back and watch a great film.
