Study Group - FY21

The Study Group provides a learning opportunity for those who would like to deepen their knowledge of the many facets of Asian art.  Each year when a new theme for study is chosen, members choose a topic to study in depth, present it to the group and learn from all the other members’ presentations.  It is a stimulating and enjoyable way to learn and make new friends in a small group.

The theme for last year was an in-depth look at Asian ceramics from Ancient China to Modern Japan; as well as the influences on The Middle East and European manufacturing. Due to covid-19 we were unable to meet after February. We will continue presentations with Japanese ceramics and hope you will join us. We meet at 10:00 a.m. on Zoom on the third Monday of September and October and March through June. The February meeting is held on the second Monday so we can celebrate the long Presidents Day weekend.
