Winter is nearly over and we’re looking forward to Spring, well, springing! We’ve had a great February in the gallery, with a wonderful retrospective of fused glass artist, Tim Long (1941-2015). We also played host to Claire Austin, as she launched her new collection of bridal headpieces which looked incredible in the gallery! Getting out and about, we visited Paula Kendall’s stunning exhibition over in Totnes and took in the launch of a group show featuring favourites Paul Ansell, Tony Homer and Sue Williamson; we’re excited to say that Paul’s work is now with us at Artizan so do pop in if you’re a fan!
So, what’s on in March? First, we want to tell you about Torbay Decorative and Fine Art Society, part of a national network of charities organising a programme of lectures from some of the country’s top experts. We joined them in February to enjoy a lecture on Buckfast Abbey given by Mark Cottle and had a lovely time with the very welcoming group. In March, their programme continues with Michael Swift’s talk, “Stained Glass: Crown Jewels of the South West”. They’re a fab little society, delivering an interesting and professional quality programme, so well worth checking out (March 9th, St Mathias Church, 2:15PM, tickets £8)!
For the poets out there, Cockington kicks of POETSFriday again for 2017. These quarterly events welcome local poets to come and write and read on a theme with this month being “Ancient Myths” (24th March, Resource Room, Seachange Studios, 2-4PM). You can also catch more poetry at Artizan with guest set from Nick Kitto (20th March, 19:30)!
For March’s Exhibition in our 2017 Solo Series, we’re excited to bring you a collection from Jim Doran, with his series of ethereal Dartmoor landscapes (Feb 28th – Mar 30th). We’ll also have Sarah Yeo, Exeter based singer songwriter, performing at our monthly Acoustic Night (27th March, 19:30).
That’s your March Art and Culture fix, we’ll see you next month!
