Event Details

The drawings Cristina Celestini is presenting are inspired by the precision and detail of Renaissance line drawings and by classical chiaroscuro techniques. The themes developed are memory, family and the resilience of human spirit. All the drawings are an attempt to snap a finite moment in time in the lives of those dear to her and of the places always in her memory. Cristina’s realistic style is integral to this series of work to let the marks, her native Rome and the subjects tell their own story. Solo Show

Event Details

Stephen Butt ARBSA. In this exhibition, Stephen has continued with his theme of the manmade city in harmony or opposition to nature. It includes two different styles of working, with the introduction of the figure and therefore a narrative, and the introduction of oil painting.

In these works I have continued my theme of the man-made city and nature in harmony or opposition with each other. Within this framework there are two ways or two styles of working. The first is my original one of using a heterogeneous source of material and methods to produce the theme, the other style is the more traditional approach of oil paint.

My conversion back to oil paint, partly due to studying the David Cox in Birmingham Art Gallery has allowed me to represent a stronger form of ‘realism’ and ‘naturalism’ which in turn lends itself to a narrative aspect, the first style has a more formal approach and can led to semi abstract qualities, the second is firmly rooted in representational painting, although aspects of both ways of working can be seen to some degree in each types of making.

The introduction of animate forms, figures, portraits, animals etc are conceived more as players in stage sets as opposed to reacting to natural circumstances, this often brings about an ‘oblique narration’ by which I mean, an action or story line which cannot quite be discerned but which is never the less inherent in the work. ‘Stage set for an imaginary opera’ is a good example of this.

Matisse once said an artist should never be a prisoner of himself or of a style, this I hold to be true particularly in the multicultural ubiquitous world of the 21st century. Solo Show

Event Details

Social Circle is back with event #10 ⭕

Social Circle was born from monthly get-togethers between friends, where we’d gather round with a few drinks and chat about the latest in social media marketing. We wanted to be better for ourselves, for our clients, and because we just really love social media.

So, we decided to open the circle to other digital marketers, with the goal to take social to the next level and share inspirational, instant, and actionable insights.

The event will run from 5:30pm (6:00pm start) to 8:00pm on Thursday 27th June, upstairs @ 1000 trades, 116 Frederick St, Birmingham B1 3HE.

This month, we’re looking to bring you…

  • 6:00pm – New advancements in social media
  • 6:30pm – 10 lessons with a special guest speaker – Megan Ace
  • 7:00pm – Drinks
  • 7:15pm – Campaigns
  • 8:00pm – Finish (and a few more drinks)

Everyone is welcome to join the discussions so that we can learn from each other (plus feel free to bring anything cool you’d like to discuss together!). Every month we share the insights in an email after the event so nothing shared in the circle is forgotten.

So join our circle, grab a drink, and get ready to learn and share new things about social media, discover mind-blowing campaigns, hear from other people in the industry and make connections to make you more unstoppable in the world of social. #YouCanSitWithUs

P.s Don’t forget to connect with us ahead of the event

Event Details

Join us for a tour about the work undertaken by women from the late 1800’s until the 1980’s and the many vitally important jobs that women worked, from working in the office to manual work such as press work, polishing and enamelling.

These women were instrumental in not only making the jewellery quarter the world’s largest jewellery manufacturing area, but also making Birmingham the work shop of the world, city of a thousand trades.

These women are the often neglected heroines of the metal working trade. Working long hours in dirty, noisy, dangerous conditions, for very little pay. This tour celebrates their hard work and fortitude.

EFFIGY FOR SLEEP – WARNING ALBUM LAUNCH

We can’t wait to release our brand new chaotic progressive heavy riffy ambient weird album with you all, its gonna be a hell of a lot a fun and a truly awesome night.

Tickets are £5 ADV / £6 OTD – you can grab a ticket from the bands, more info on that coming soon!

Kicking off the night we’ve got the amazing Echo Gecco

They have created a sound all of their very own that has the ability to mix and blend genres that shouldn’t normally mix. Heavy riffs in a smooth jazz song? Who knew that would work?! The band believes that this type of versatility will make sure that any and every person that listens or watches Echo Gecco will find something they will enjoy.

Our main support will be the super complex and riffy Brocken Spectre

Combining intricate grooves and melodies forming a mind bending barrage of intense sound they blend technical metal and complex rhythms with jazz influences, pushing the boundaries of the contemporary progressive metal scene.

Lets pack this out and have a right old party.

Love and prog x
