Congratulations everyone, we made it through January! It’s been a busy start to the year for the team at Artizan but we’ve had a very enjoyable first exhibition from Torquay artist Sam Regan. Thanks to everyone who came along and visited, we’ve got plenty more planned for 2017!
With February looking to be cold and dreary, we’re going to make sure that there’s plenty in your cultural calendar to keep your spirits up, so here’s what you’ve got to look forward to this month.
If you’re looking to get your fill of art, one of our favourite artists will be featured over in Paignton. Kim Freeman will be displaying in Sands Road Gallery this month, and her fantastic mixed-media abstracts, which combine elements of photography, collage and pattern making, will definitely brighten any winter blues. And of course, pop down to Lucius Street to see who’s on display at Artizan and Torbay Galleries.
For music lovers, there are some real treats. Classical enthusiasts get your tickets for Lupton Houses, Cello, Violin and Piano Recital with Greg Vorster, Yulia Northridge and Ekaterina Shetliffe, 19th February. Or for those preferring a jazz influence, Speakeasy’s second event of 2017 is the place to be, with La Vie En Rose performing an eclectic mix of gypsy jazz inspired, western swing infused, blues and rock charged music, at The Toorak Hotel, 22nd February. And not forgetting, Artizan’s very own laid back Acoustic Sessions with guest performance from Michael Baker, 27th February.
Finally, in the world of theatre and lectures there’s two you won’t want to miss. Torquay Museum continue their programme of talks with Antiques Roadshow Specialist, Marc Allum in discussion on pieces from his own personal collection, 3rd February. And over in Paignton, the Palace Theatre plays host to a performance of Alan Ayckbourn’s, Confusions, a series of five interconnected one-act plays on the theme of obsession and isolation.
That’s your February Art and Culture fix, we’ll see you next month!
