Study Group - FY20

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 subject 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 the upcoming year is 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. We meet at 10:00 a.m. in the Museum Boardroom on the third Monday of September and October and March through June. January and February meeting dates are on the second Monday of those months due to the Museum closure for national holidays.
