Visit to Bristol and the Grayson Perry Exhibition
Wednesday 06 December 2017

Fifteen members of the Society travelled by train and bus to Bristol Harbourside in early December to visit the acclaimed Grayson Perry exhibition - showing for the first time outside London - at the Arnolfini Gallery. Some were converts to Perry's work before going but all returned with a new respect and admiration for the artist and the work on show. Extending over 4 floors and featuring short Channel 4 documentaries about Perry as well as pottery, tapestries, sculptures and other individual objets d'art, the exhibition was thought provoking, informative and a feast for the eyes. Time flew by, though some also found a chance to visit the M - Shed, the museum of Bristol across the harbour from the Arnolfini and view the 2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition, also excellent. 

This was the first time that cars and public transport rather than hired coaches have been used for a Neroche visit. Apart from the ordeal of parking in overflowing car parks at Taunton station - but we managed it! - it was a successful experiment which made costs much more reasonable and will almost certainly be repeated as opportunities come up..
