Outing to Kettle's Yard and Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge Thurs. 29th August 2019

16 Jan 2019 - 17:58 BY

Our trip to Cambridge will start at the recently transformed Kettle’s Yard the home of Jim and Helen Ede until 1970. Kettle’s Yard is being opened specially for us to enjoy. We will have an introductory talk and then an opportunity to explore the house at leisure. Jim Ede was a curator at the Tate Gallery. Thanks to his friendships with artists and other like-minded people, over the years he gathered a remarkable collection, including paintings by Ben and Winifred Nicholson, Alfred Wallis, Christopher Wood, David Jones and Joan Miro, as well as sculptures by Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Constantin Brancusi, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. At Kettle’s Yard Jim carefully positioned these artworks alongside furniture, glass, ceramics and natural objects, with the aim of creating a harmonic whole. 

 

We will then travel to the Fitzwilliam Museum and after lunch (not provided but picnic facilities are available as is a cafe and Browns or Loch Fyne are just across the road), meet up again for a private guided tour of the highlights of the Museum. We will then all have plenty of time to enjoy the Museum, its art gallery and the special ceramics and glass exhibitions.

Tickets are on sale from February onwards and for further details contact Anne Freimanis on 01707 323277 or email  a.freimanis@icloud.com
