What a great day over 40 of us had in Hull visiting the Ferens Gallery and other attractions. We started off in Sutton in the pouring rain and ended up in Hull to fine weather. Hull itself was a pleasant surprise to many people, with a water front and many historic buildings.
The Ferens Gallery was very good indeed with a wonderful variety of exhibits. The ‘Skin’ section exhibited, amongst other things, photographs of the nude figures which featured as an event for the City of Culture 2017. Hundreds of people took part, some of them painted blue. A coincidence occurred when one of our members happened to stand next to a couple of young women who were looking with particular interest at one of these photographs – he started to engage with them [as you do] and they pointed out where they were in the photograph. How wonderful to be part of Art!
