Come hear the Chamber Music Society’s Brass line make some noise!
Monday 1st June 2009, 7.15 p.m at the Barefoot Garden Cafe
A delightful informal evening of classical music, food and drink.
This TUESDAY 2nd JUNE – the Barefoot Film Club will screen SPELLBOUND: “a nail-biting face-off among hundreds of teens who train as rigorously as any Olympic athlete on their heroic quest for glory” …
Finally the world’s geeks get their very own Rocky in the shape of this quirky documentary, which follows eight teenagers as they compete in the 1999 American National Spelling Bee. While the competition is exciting enough, it’s the kids’ differing backgrounds that give this film its real heart. From the daughter of Mexican immigrants whose father speaks no English to a gawky farmboy whose parents struggle to understand their talented offspring, this is really a story of the trials and occasional triumphs of what it’s like to be young and “different” in America. http://www.radiotimes.com/
When: Tuesday 2nd June – 7:30pm for 7:45pm start
Where: Barefoot Garden Cafe
Come along – for the film, or for an excuse to just to get out of your house!
MAHEN PERERA’S ‘TIME LOST AND FOUND’opens on june 4th, 2009 at 7:30 pm.
Coming soon after his artistic training at the La Salle College of Art in Singapore, this exhibition marks Mahen Perera’s ‘professional debut’ in Sri Lanka. And it introduces some startling new themes, or at least startling treatment of some not so new themes. And in doing so he answers with a degree of originality the perennial question which gallery visitors ask, “why do some artists so willfully forsake ‘realism’ and representational ‘accuracy’, and why are the results so often forbidding to the eye and revolting to good sense? Little do they ask about the price art often pays for the accessible and pleasing effects of so-called ‘realism’.”
