The Curve - A Concert on Canvas, January 2017

Exhibition at Gallery@The Curve, Slough, Berkshire UK

24-1-2017 to 7-2-2017

A Concert on Canvas: a collection of works inspired by the way musicians move, and the way musicians move us.

The first show of paintings by a professional local artist at The Gallery@The Curve - Slough's avant-garde new library, theatre, cultural centre, and registry - took place at the beginning of the year for 5 weeks.

Depicting musicians in movement, the show focused on twelve large colourful oils painted over a period spanning 40 years. The exhibition was opened by His Excellence, Libor Sečka, the Czech Ambassador to the United Kingdom, on Tuesday, 24th January. The Czech Embassy also provided Czech wine, Pilsner beer and Czech canapes. At the private view, young Czech soprano Lucie Kankova, whose father (the great Czech composer Jindrich Feld) was a friend of the Alex's, sang love and gypsy songs and an aria, all by Dvorak, accompanied by Jean Garrett on a Yamaha Clavinova.
