Our next art discussion meeting will consider the Artists International Association, an exhibiting society founded in 1933. It’s aim was the ‘Unity of Artists for Peace, Democracy and Cultural Development’.
In turn we will look at the formation of working class art groups such as the East London Group and the Pitman Painters (the Ashington Group) as well the arrival of Mass Observation in “Worktown”.
