‘From This Land’ at THROWN and OmVed Gardens @ Thrown & OmVed Gardens
May 24 @ 11:00 am – 6:00 pm

Thrown and OmVed Gardens are proud to present ‘From This Land’, a specially curated group exhibition for the Chelsea Fringe. The exhibition brings together artists who draw inspiration from and for nature, whether in responding to the landscape around them, collecting natural materials to use within their work or creating vessels to bring nature into our homes.

Featuring emerging and established names, the show will focus primarily on ceramics alongside a collection of abstract landscape-inspired drawings by recent graduate Samantha Silverton and handmade textile flowers by Isabel Dodd. The exhibition will also include Zulieka Melluish’s botanical-pressed wall plates, Simon Kidd’s wheel-thrown and slip-cast porcelain ceramics incorporating the materials and tools that have created the landscape of his home in Northern Ireland and Andrea Roman’s installation of 100 experimental terracotta vessels.

The exhibition will feature ikebana arrangements in response to some of the works on display by Aya Tanaka, professional Japanese flower designer and Ikebana professor, who will also be leading a series of workshops throughout the week.

‘From This Land’ will span both Thrown’s gallery space on Highgate High Street and the converted greenhouse exhibition space of OmVed Gardens at 1 Townsend Yard.

Featuring: Alistair Blair, Tom Crew, Isabel Dodd, Adam Frew, Lise Herud Braten, Simon Kidd, Joseph Ludkin, Zuleika Melluish, Lisa Ommanney, Andrea Roman, Samantha Silverton and Alison West.

Handel’s ‘Partenope’ – an opera not-so-seria @ Jacksons Lane Theatre
May 24 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

Join us at the sea-side in Victorian England, where Partenope, proprietress of a leading establishment, faces takeover attempts (on her hotel and herself) from neighbouring  hoteliers Arsace, Ormindo and Emilio, as well as the enigmatic Eurimene – can he really be what he seems? Threats, battles and surprises, and some thrilling singing, lead of course to a happy ending…..

Our brilliant cast of future opera stars, Ashley Pearson’s witty production and the talents of the HGO  orchestra bring Handel’s sly take on opera seria endearingly to life.  Our orchestra is conducted by Bertie Baigent, a finalist in the 2018 Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition.

Jazz in the House: Chris Laurence Quartet @ Lauderdale House
May 30 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm

Chris Laurence with Frank Ricotti (vibes), John Parricelli (guitar), and Martin France (drums)        

When it comes to jazz, playing the game of ‘who’s best?’ is surely a no-win situation. But anyone who was present the last time this band played at Lauderdale would have been sorely tempted to say Chris Laurence!

Laurence’s band mines a rich seam of mostly British composers like John Surman, Stan Sulzmann, John Parricelli (not to mention honorary Brit Kenny Wheeler!) with a soupcon of Steve Swallow. Their last show was one of the finest concerts that we have been privileged to present.

Chris Laurence returns for Jazz in the House, with Frank Ricotti, John Parricelli, and Martin France. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8.30pm. The bar will be open from late afternoon for drinks and snacks.

Here’s your reminder that the next session for Highgate Coffee and Computers is today!

So do drop in and help yourself to some one-to-one tech advice, or just see what it’s about and have a cup of coffee. If you know you are coming, it would be helpful if you could let us know by sending us a quick message. But you don’t have to.

Of course, you may feel you know quite enough about computers, so why not share your knowledge with someone else? We all try to help each other and always welcome new friends!

We look forward to seeing you later!
