OK, this is not ideal. I’ve got absolutely stacks to tell you about and a zillion pics but I’m out of time to get the news written properly this week due to other pressing commitments. So this is a bit of a cop out really but I’ll make up for it next week!

There’s loads of great stuff on at the moment. In particular do go and see ‘Catch and Release’ at The Isle Gallery. I was there earlier today (Sunday) and it really is a lovely show. Also, from Wednesday, you can see some of Roger Dean’s gorgeous pictures at The Sayle Gallery – some of which have not been shown before on the Island. It’s a lovely selection and will be well worth a look. Don’t forget that if you go along to Islexpo at the Villa Marina on Wednesday you can see the Pecha Kucha’s from 6.45pm in the Garden Hub followed by Roger Dean and Dave Mousley’s ‘fireside chat’ at 7.45pm (should be really interesting). If you register you will get a delegate bag which will have one of the ‘Yes’ logos in – if you collect all 4 you can take them along to Roger for an autograph. They’ll look great framed up  🙂

I also went along to Ramsey Grammar School this week where their Art Student’s show is up. I really wanted to do this justice so I’m saving it for next week, however, the show is only on for the next couple of weeks. The public can go and see it but as it’s a teaching environment and there are likely to be classes in progress, please contact Gerry Quinn on 491016 to arrange a time to see the work if you’d like to visit.

Here are a few pics to keep you going until next week!
