Dear members and friends,

We are off to a great start with our first 2016 outing in January. The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart put together a special exhibition themed "The Poetry of Color". Works of artists from various schools and genres like "Blauer Reiter", "Die Blaue Vier", "Bauhaus", Expressionism, Surrealism to only name a few, will be presented.

At the time (end of 19th/beginning of 20th century) blue was regarded as the serious principle, red as the brutal, and yellow as the cheerful. Arranged along these poetical and emotional categories, the Staatsgalerie assembles artworks from significant and well-known artists of the 19th and 20th century like Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky, Robert Delaunay, Paul Klee, August Macke and many more.

We'll do two guided tours, one in English and one in German, each lasting one hour.

Date: Saturday, January 23, 2016
Meeting Location: Entrance Hall of "Neue Staatsgalerie Stuttgart"
Meeting Time: 14:45
