Tuesday 19  November : The gala night for Katrin Feldhus’ latest exhibition Middle Axis which  features paintings (oil pastels on paper or canvas, and pen on paper) by the Kingston artist. Katrin also exhibits poems on mixed media.  “The exhibition is my experimental voice. Some of my art, not all, directly expresses the experience of violence and injustice, such as ‘Innocence’, ‘Dreaming’ and ‘Irony’. Other paintings are inspired by shapes, events, emotions and dreams. ” Katrin said she has had fun creating the exhibition and hopes gallery-goers will have fun viewing it. The exhibition might also inspire people to show their own voice, in whatever shape or form, she added.

Everyone is welcome to the gala night which runs from 7-9pm to see Katrin’s work and hear about what inspires her.

Saturday 23 November : Crafty Afty. The chance to practice and develop your crafting in a supportive group. Nothing too organised – just an opportunity to come and spend a few hours in the company of like-minded creative grown ups. Bring whatever project you’re working on, or want to start. All forms of artistry welcome, whether it’s papier mache, patchwork, photography, drawing, jewellery-making, knitting, painting, cards making – anything. If you need space to spread out there’s lots. There’ll be home-made cake and tea available, too. Runs from 1-5pm

Tuesday, November 26 (8pm ) and Wednesday, November 27 ( 7.30pm ) : Kingston Junior Drama Company will be presenting a double-bill of Paradise and The Fairyland Trials.

Paradise was the first play ever produced by the drama company back in 2007. However, this time, the staging will be very different. Both shows will be played in the auditorium area, among the audience, with the house lights on. Paradise tells the story of a group of Victorian children who become shipwrecked on an island. As events unfold, it becomes clear that nothing is quite as it seems. The other play is The Fairyland Trials, a short comedy, played out by fairy-tale characters. It atires the impact on children of decisions made in the courtroom. Tickets are £3 to members of KJDC and £4 to others. Seating will be limited for this production due to the nature of the staging. Ticket reservations can be made by email on
