On Languard Point

Last night I went to the premier of On Landguard Point at the Ipswich Film Theatre. there even was a canopy and a red carpet.  

 as it says on the blurb...'On Landguard Point is a film by Pacitti Company featuring performance, prose, myth, music and spectacular visuals. Inspired by the histories and culture of the East of England, On Landguard Point exists at an intersection between live performance, community and cinema – where local people and places really do become the stars of the show.'

It was a stunning, painterly film. The director Robert Pacitti captured  a tapestry of moments and events from last year, of both commissioned performance art pieces woven together with events and displays by local communities  based in and around Languard Point; a historical old fort situated right on the edge of the country where Felixstow juts into the cold grey sea. The words were beautiful and poignant and hung the piece together, the music too had a rhythmic pace.

Summer Breeze review in EADT on line

Such a lovely notice from Sonia Carville in the EADT. You can see it with this link; review of the Summer Breeze exhibition at the Reunion Gallery in Felixstow. It makes me feel like painting again....but now the studio is soooo hot I have to wait till the evening, ah well gotta go and enjoy the sun...Paint with plants in the garden instead.

Sunday 3 June 2012 a book of the paintings a way forward?

Its always sad to bring the paintings back from the gallery and put them away in the cuboard again.
Perhaps a book of the paintings is a good way forward?
I looked at Doug Selways blog today... always a pleasure; and he had a book of his landscapes. Wide World 
and I thought 'hmmmm....'
