Up on the VIRTUAL GALLERY‘s big screen
we have a double- feature this month;
First half of the show we’ll be exhibiting the supra-surrealistic visions of expatriate Australian artist
best known perhaps for his grim, foreboding, urbanised landscapes, largely deserted but for the occasional appearance of lone, curiously vulnerable, human figures. Surely an amusingly ironic (if a little rusty) backdrop for the occasion.
After the tea-break the Human spirit soars aloft once more, rising from the Mud to the Stars, via the flittery, fluttery wings not of Angels but of Butterflies!
Local anarcho-entomologist Frank J will be
showing Butterfly & Flutterbug photos from his personal Collection throughout the second session, and will later expound on the Mysteries of these magnificent sea-creatures.
And of course as always, there will be
FREE FOOD & REFRESHMENTS!
FREE ONSITE PARKING!
TWO OPEN MIC SESSIONS!
PRIZES & SURPRISES!
AND THE FRIENDLIEST FOLK IN POETRY!
All this and more for a mere $5/($4 for members)
So come along and bring your funniest poem to read,
or bring your saddest and we’ll laugh at that!
But bring along your words, be they Prose or Poetry.
Or just come to Listen, and lie back and See!
