Tour of Degas to Dalí

Let's see this never-to-be-seen-again exhibition together.

We will gather in the foyer of the gallery for a meet & greet, buy our tickets and will meet the guide at 2pm for our one-hour guided tour.
Afterwards we can have a talk and coffee/tea/snack in the gallery cafe. And then those who are keen can go back to see the rest of the exhibition, or the permanent collection, or do some sketching.

Tickets $20, students/seniors $17.

»Meet the masters from the National Galleries of Scotland as Degas to Dalí tours exclusively to Auckland.

    Thanks Vanessa. yes, after 18 of us signed up, the guided tour was limited to 15 spaces. I asked people to update their RSVP because there were a few who said Sunday would be better for them. But now it seems that most of us can make it on the Saturday. Am still waiting for Mallika's reply and will then put the ones, who came in last (Laurie and Tim), on a waiting list, if that's fine. You +2 were in earlier.

    Thanks for organizing all this Saskia. I am sad to have missed out on the guided tour. But it looks as though we could possibly organize another. We would need to book two weeks in advance for a guided tour and as Saskia mentioned with a group of minimum 10. If anyone else out there would like to hold out for a guided tour I would be keen to try to organize another as I would much prefer the guided tour and then afterwards those who are keen could do some sketching as Jenny suggested?

    Hi Jenny, sketching in the gallery sounds great. But this Meetup we will have a guided tour and I can imagine it would be quite challenging to run after the guide with our crayons on the lap :) You're more than welcome to schedule another Meetup though with a different focus.

    Hi Saskia
    I've been to the exhibition alreaDY and it is marvelous to see the pictures, more colours and shading than shows up in photos. Glad to go again, At this pint any time would suit so please keep me informed. I shall be arriving with my crayons and oil pastels like I did the last time, so if anyone is also going to do this it would great to talk and compare notes! We got in for $10 each as one person elected to be our teacher, if this helps;)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
