Opening Night - For the Benefit of Mr K by Ken Tucker

05/09/2019 @ 05:30 PM – 07:00 PM Kiama NSW

Opening night of the Exhibition "For the Benefit of Mr K" by Ken TuckerWhy the Beatles? Many times over the years I have produced artworks  based on music.  It feels like DNA  to me.  I recently read about John Lennon and how he came to write the lyrics for the Beatles song "Fort the Benefit of Mr Kite" which is included on the Beatles album 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.'  I found the story fascinating. The deeper meaning of the lyrics stimulates abstract thoughts and visuals in my brain.

Gerringong Pics and Flicks

06/09/2019 @ From 07:30 PM Gerringong NSW

Picks and Flicks September movie is 'Macdam Stories'.  Summary: Macadam Stories Rating: M Length: 100 mins Cast: Gustave Kervern, Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi, Isabelle Huppert, Michael Pitt Director and author Samuel Benchetrit brings much of his autobiographical book Asphalt Chronicles to the screen as Macadam Stories, a series of interconnected vignettes set in a public housing complex on the outskirts of Paris. With a focus on six characters, we meet the penny-pinching loaner Sternkowitz (Gustave Kervern from In The Courtyard – Festival 2015), who forges an unlikely relationship with a night nurse (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi). In another thread, inquisitive adolescent Charly (the director’s son Jules Benchetrit) and Jeanne (Isabelle Huppert), an ageing movie star, form a bond that changes them both for the better. In the final instalment, American astronaut, John McKenzie (Michael Pitt) accidentally lands on the apartment of a migrant, Mrs Hamida, and the pair communicate through fractured French while NASA busily stages a cover up. Deadpan and often droll, the film recalls the entertaining style of Jim Jarmusch, with an undercurrent of quirky and satisfying sight gags.  from Alliance Francaise Film Festival.Tickets go on sale at Gerringong Town Hall at 7.20pm with the film starting at 8.00pm.

In this workshop our local talented artist Robyn Healey will be teaching you two very different small projects to make. A moulded 3D flower broach (utilising moulds, fleeced spun wool embellishment) and a free form funky little gnome.
