Something for the weekend?
The loop went to the private view of the new exhibition at Jobling Gowler last night. As ever it is good to see them generously allowing their extensive offices to be used by the Moving Clay group of artists. Its a really diverse show; there are large moody landscapes by Lindi Kirwin and tiny detailed jewell like pictures by Jacki Clark. Please note its only open during the week. Picture: map jewellery by Liz Hamman @ Jobling Gowler.
Tonight ( Fri) you can hear Helen Walford and Dead River Disco at The Hollins whilst tomorrow Dazed and Confused play the Nags Head.
Tomorrow at Camp Four (how we love an unorthodox exhibition space!) Bollington artist Dean Entwistle shows his pictures and talks about them too. Bollington Art Centre Gallery are showing 'Brushes with wildlife' an exhibition by the RSPB on Sunday and there is a Craft Show at Redesmere .
Meanwhile back to Saturday night and the OPERA GALA at Clonter.This popular annual event offers the opportunity to hear talented young professional singers perform arias, duets and excerpts of well-loved operas.It is is the perfect introduction to opera for those new to this art form or, for regular opera goers, it is a chance to hear popular selections of opera and musical theatres.
There's a 70 minute supper interval, or alternatively you could book an indoor (phew!) picnic table and bring a picnic.
The NCO are in the Heritage Centre on Saturday with Alexandra Dariescu, piano playing Elgar, Mozart, Bartok and Haydn.
