The Tilted Lens8 Jun 2024
10am - 4pm A Photographic Exhibition by Katherina Norton Reality versus perception in photographs. What if the reality we perceive differs from what exists? The reality we live in, does not always correspond to the real world or what others might see. What we see is a clever construction of the brain's guesses. Guesses that are obscured by a sensory veil and revealed to our minds through the complex mechanisms of perception. Perceptions that are visual illusions, as well as transient glimpses of objective reality and deeper truth. We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.” - from the Seduction of the Minotaur by Anias Nin 1961 www.armidaleartgallery.com
Yaka Ayina - I Saw14 Jun 2024

1.30pm - 4.30pm Come, Sip & doodle with Jan as she guides you with paper and pen into this pleasant way of drawing without stress or pressure to do something ‘real’. This is a process for you to enjoy. In recent years doodling has had an upgrade and revival because of the acknowledged benefits of drawing mindfully. Without being ‘artistic’ you can draw your way into a relaxed state called The Flow, which is calm and alert without being sleepy. The Flow can be achieved many ways, it’s how we feel when totally absorbed in an activity and when you finish that activity you feel like you are returning refreshed. ——————- • No prior experience is required • All materials to complete your Doodle Artwork is included and all participants will have 3 x cards with envelopes with their doodles artwork on to take home.

Experience the original bohemian love story. When Mimì meets Rodolfo, it’s love at first touch. They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship. But even the deepest love can’t warm a freezing winter.

Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss. Puccini’s score has always captured the soaring spirit
