An exciting collaboration of U3A (University of the Third Age) members work they have recently created on display here at Ruskin Glass Centre.
You will find the works along the corridor where the incubation units are located.
Members will be available throughout the exhibition if you require any more information.
The U3A Art Groups are part of a growing learning & experiencing co-operative based in Stourbridge .
Art Group One, meet once a month on a Thursday 2-4pm at Ruskin Glass Centre. Art Group Two, meet once a week at Stourbridge Fire Station: 2.30-4pm.
Although a great deal of the art work in the this exhibition has been produced over a period of time, there are recent pieces that have been inspired from being a member of the U3A, for example: from visits to interesting places, walks and other experiences with the U3A.
We are only one of the many groups available, joining is easy for just £20 per year and £1 per session attended, participants are able to share ideas and their expertise in a friendly environment.
Details for joining the Stoubridge U3A Group can be found in the leaflets provided in this exhibition.
‘What is the University of the Third Age?
U3A are a democratic self- funded, self managed organisations, which exist to provide a full rang of activities for men and women, no longer in full employment at minimal cost. They draw upon the knowledge, experience and skills of their members to organize interest groups in accordance with the wishes of the members.
U3A is a registered charity in the UK. There are currently more than 850 U3As in the UK, and over 275,000 individual members.
By joining a local U3A group you will become a member of an outgoing, dynamic outward looking organization, which has a positive and creative approach to life.
Anyone in the third age, 50+ can join, including people working part-time. No qualifications are required & none are given.
We hope you enjoy the exhibition. Best wishes from the U3A Stourbridge Art Groups.
