Diary

Quarterly Committee meetings, AGM, campaigns and other events.

The quarterly committee meetings and AGM are open to all PCS ARMs members in Yorkshire and the Humber region and we encourage you to come along and get involved. The meetings are friendly and informal and addressed by a guest speaker. We cannot afford to pay everyone's travel costs but we provide refreshments at lunchtime. All meetings are held in the PCS regional office in Leeds starting at 11:30am.

The meetings and events we have planned are as follows:

ARMs Educational Visit to the Lowry Gallery / Museum - Wednesday 14 November 2018.

We have arranged a visit to the Lowry at Salford Quays, Manchester to see the Lowry exhibition and the special exhibition - Lowry & The Pre-Raphaelites. Both are free entry.

The Lowry is home to the world's largest public collection of paintings and drawings by LS Lowry. A large selection is on display in our permanent exhibition alongside other works on loan from private collections across the UK.

Also a brand new exhibition about LS Lowry and his admiration for the Pre-Raphaelites. This exhibition is set to bring together works by Rossetti and other members of the Pre-Raphaelite movement for a major exhibition. The Pre-Raphaelites were a group of 19th century artists who ‘rebelled’ against the accepted thinking and artistic teaching of the time. Lowry acquired much of his own Pre-Raphaelite collection and was a frequent visitor and president of their Rossetti Society.

The visit is at your own expense. Meet at Piccadilly Rail Station at 11:50 or the Lowry at 12:15.
