We have just a handful of spaces left for Jess' workshop on Wednesday, 8th May, 10 am - 1 pm
Jess is a mixed media artist who uses a variety of materials to obtain the effects she’s looking for. Influenced and inspired by the flows & rhythms of the landscape, her creative concerns encompass colour, texture, surface decoration, composition, balance & light.
She is an experienced & inspirational tutor, aiming to help students make discoveries, loosen up in their approach, take creative risks, make connections between different specialisms & techniques, and develop their own style & creative voice.
Reserve your place today! Members £10, Others £12. Call 01892 853159 or email firstname.lastname@example.org www.jesslevineartist.com
We're really excited to welcome guitarist Ellie Kotzia back to the Green Lane Music Room on Saturday 13th April at 7.30. Ellie will appear with pianist Wilfred Murray to play a great programme of baroque music for guitar and harpsichord (or in this case piano). Music by Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Rodrigo and Boccherini will amuse and delight us.
Please book now if you’d like seats - we have only a few left! CA Members, £12, others £15, full time students with paying adult, £5.
From email@example.com or phone 01892 664 534.
Hear Ellie in action here!
It's not too late to reserve your seats to hear the fascinating Peter Medhurst talk about the relationship between paintings and the music of the time in which they were painted. Seats are limited though, so book today!
This is a question we expect to hear repeatedly over the next few months! Originating as a dish of chopped meat, anchovies, eggs, onions and seasoning, the term has passed into common usage (well commonish, anyway) to mean a general mixture or miscellaneous collection. In any case, it's a great word, and - guess what - is alliterative with the name of our county, hence the title for our event on 15th June: "A Sussex Salmagundi". We've put together a brilliant cast including not only regular Crowborough Arts performers, but also some truly exceptional guests - and some big surprises! Our Salmagundi will include music, poetry, the retelling of local legends, the dramatisation of work by famous local authors, and much, much more. Reserve your tickets now, and tell all your friends and family: this is going to be an evening to remember!
It's a particularly murky day today, so cheer yourself up by finding out what's coming up from CA over the next few months. Our regular art workshops, book and play reading groups are lined up, plus some exciting music and talks. Well-known musician and lecturer Peter Medhurst visits us in May to talk about the relationship between music and painting - this will set out quickly, so get your tickets now! And this is all just for starters - more info will be going on the site in the near future, including a talk in October with acclaimed novelist and playwright Simon Brett.
The website has been brought up to date this very morning, so do have a look at what's happening - and put a note in your diary to join us at the AGM on 24th February for more news!
Brighten up these increasingly dark evenings with an early festive visit to our Winter exhibition at Penshurst's Porcupine Pantry. As well as the opportunity to view and purchase original artwork, the fantastic gift shop is open until 7.00 and all our visitors will be offered a glass of mulled wine. Everyone welcome, but please be sure to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll soon be calling for submissions for our annual winter exhibition at Penshurst, which opens on Wednesday 14th November. As with last year, we'll reserve part of the hanging space for pictures created as part of our 'Art in the Garden' partnership with Penshurst Place. With these lovely sunny autumn days we're having, it's the ideal opportunity to spend some time in the formal gardens at Penshurst drawing or painting.
