U3A Guided Tour at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery

NOTE:  The date of this tour has been changed to Tuesday 13th September commencing 1:00pm

A guided tour of some of the exhibited artworks at Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery on the campus of the University of WA specifically for U3A Art for Everyone participants.  

There will be no charge for the tour, however you must find your own way to the Gallery, best accessed from Fairway, off Stirling Highway at Nedlands. (Paid parking along here)  The bus from Perth Station or Elizabeth Quay Bus Station is No 950.  Check the Transperth Journey Planner for timetables and Stop locations.

Carl Altmann (Master’s in Art Education and Art History) will conduct the tour and describe in some detail the works and the artists responsible.  Carl is a popular and much-loved lecturer in Art History for the Friends of the Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery and a multitude of other art organisations.  His inimitable style and wealth of knowledge often make his presentations a work of performance art in themselves!

Carl has been engaged to conduct a one-hour tour, but admits that with your questions and his enthusiasm, his lectures have been known to go over time!

YOU MUST BOOK VIA THE BOOKING PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE, AND PARTICIPANTS ARE LIMITED TO 15 TO ENSURE THE BEST POSSIBLE EXPERIENCE FOR ALL.

We will also collect the names of U3A members who miss out on this tour, and if there are sufficient numbers we may be able to arrange a second tour at a future date.

If you have reserved a place and then find yourself unable to attend, we would appreciate being advised as early as possible so we can offer your place to someone else.

Bookings are essential; $5 per U3A member.

The very popular street art walk will again be conducted by Vicky Friel.  Please note the content will be the same or very similar to the walks in Perth CBD earlier this year and last year.

It is a walk through some of the city streets and alleyways to view the surprisingly rich and varied styles of street art and will include informed discussion about the art works themselves and the artists behind them.

Please be aware this is a walking tour with steps and uneven ground — unfortunately this one is not suitable for you if you need any walking aids, frames or sticks.  Duration is between one hour and an hour and a half, stopping frequently along the way, but with no real opportunities to sit down!

Choose clothing and shoes appropriate to the back streets and alleys; a hat, sunscreen and a water bottle are highly recommended.  Please wear your U3A badge(Any COVID restrictions applicable at the time must also be complied with.  At present masks are optional but you are encouraged to wear one if you wish.  Face masks are currently strongly recommended indoors.)

Numbers are strictly limited to 7 participants to ensure the best possible experience for everyone.

Vicky invites you to join her for a light lunch (at your own expense) immediately following the walk.  This will be a great opportunity to rest weary feet and discuss what you have just seen!

The tour will commence at 10:30am sharp from near the “Green Cactus” in Forrest Place, so please be on time!  If you have booked but are then unable to attend, please inform Vicky as soon as possible.
