About this Event

We can't be in the gallery at the moment, but we carrying on discussing art.

What is Art Bites?

Art bites is a session that usually runs every Wednesday lunchtime live in the gallery. A team of staff and volunteers lead a discussion focussing on two art works on display.

It is basically a chat about art sharing opinions and ideas. We discuss what we see, what we think about it, what it makes us think of, how it inspires us or repels us, what we find curious about it, how our own life experiences connect with it. It's based on the idea that we all have something to say about a visual image based on our experiences. You don't need to have an art history degree to understand art works, and the experience of a shared discussion can give us new perspectives.

We focus on two art works that might have a similar theme but may have been created in very different ways. The facilitator will ask a series of questions to get the conversation going and then we see where it takes us!
