Armidale Arat Gallery Exhibitions Opening26 Jan 2019
Exhibitions Reimaginings: Benjamin Thorn - Reimaginings is a collection of assemblages mostly made from children's blocks. The blocks are combined into both quasi representational and abstract images that explore patinas, textures and embossed letters of the blocks. As I See It - Katherine Miles - As I See It comprises landscapes, portraits and subjects from nature. The artist’s creativity springs from the desire to reproduce the beautiful scenes and objects she sees, so that through her art, other people may enjoy them. They are realistic representations using acrylics or acrylic wash on canvas or paper.

Music on a Market Sunday - Mozart Piano Quartet27 Jan 2019
Mozart Piano Quartet in Market Sunday Concert The Music on a Market Sunday concert at 12:30pm on 27 January in the Uniting Church features Mozart’s Piano Quartet in g minor performed by John Clifton Everest, April Kelson, Jhana Allen and Camilla Tafra. The Piano Quartet in g minor composed in 1785 is regarded as the first major piece composed for that combination of instruments (violin, viola, cello and piano). It is a brilliant and technically tricky work, that displeased the commissioning editor since it was unsuited for his target market of amateur performers but has always delighted audiences. John, April, Jhana and Camilla are four of Armidale’s leading musicians and this is a great opportunity to hear them working together. Admission to the concert is fee, though donations are encouraged. Tea and sausages will be available at the Uniting Church before the concert.

Australasian Society for Classical Studies Keynote Lecture God’s Powerhouse: piety, faith and salvation in temples and churches of the Roman empire5 Feb 2019
Speaker: Professor Teresa Morgan This keynote lecture is part of the 2019 Australasian Society for Classical Studies Annual Conference at UNE. Date: Tue 5th Feb 2019 6:00pm-7:00pm Location: Arts Lecture Theatre 1 Before the fourth century, buildings had little or no theological or spiritual significance in Christianity. After 313 they developed dramatically into evangelists of stone and brick: converting unbelievers, framing the encounter between Christ and community members, and inflaming faith. This change not only reveals much about evolving Christianity, but raises new questions about the role of religious buildings elsewhere in the Graeco-Roman world, and sheds new light on some of Christianity’s major competitors. This lecture will explore the power of buildings to shape piety in ancient religious thinking, and reflect on the ongoing role of interdisciplinarity in shaping research. https://www.une.edu.au/connect/events/events/ascs-keynote-address

Australasian Society for classical studies
Australasian Society for Classical Studies - 23rd Maurice Kelly Lecture 6 Feb 2019
Speaker: Dr Julie Anderson (British Museum) Dangeil was a religious and political centre in the ancient Kingdom of Meroe, lying close to the Nile on the southern border of the Roman Empire, in what is now central Sudan. Excavations conducted since 2000, under the auspices of the Sudanese National Corporation for Antiquities and Museums, have uncovered a large, previously unknown temple of the god Amun, with brick walls and fine decorated stone wall-panels. The temple was dedicated by Amanitore and Natakamani, Nubian rulers of the 1st century AD. Earlier rulers represented in a hoard of statues found on site include the celebrated Pharaoh Taharqo. This is one of many discoveries at Dangeil that are throwing unexpected light on African history from antiquity into the medieval Christian period and later. The exceptionally fine condition of the temple has presented many conservation challenges, and a robust programme of conservation and site presentation is underway. https://www.une.edu.au/connect/events/events/23rd-maurice-kelly-lecture
