Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to present Celtic Journeys, new works by Twila Robar-DeCoste. The show is the culmination of 3 trips the artist made to Ireland and Scotland in 2009, 2011 & 2013, her reminiscences, photos and sketches: "I have fond memories of sketching several vistas at the Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland on the Antrim coast, the beautiful Castle Stalker at Appin, Loch Linnhe, Scotland, and of taking the local commuter train to sit on the long wind swept and vacant beach at Greystones on Ireland's east coast."
The show features a variety of subjects: celtic crosses, lighthouse and boats, cityscapes and countryside, historic ruins and castles, rolling hills and misty weather. Celtic Journeys is a series of delicate and atmospheric watercolours and larger acrylic paintings that portray "how I saw the wild and domestic beauty in these Celtic lands".
To view it visit Visual Voice Fine Art gallery in Truro from October 6th to November 27th. Meet the artist, enjoy the art, a nibble, and a refreshment at the FREE public opening reception held the evening of Saturday, October 4th from 7 to 9 pm.

Creative improvised music, drawing upon both jazz and classical traditions.
An interesting cross section of creative musicians from Halifax, at our intimate setting in Truro for only $10 per person!
Some are classical players who are also great improvisers (Norm Adams is the principle in SNS and Jackson Fairfax-Perry is a very promising young classical composer); some are versatile jazz players like Geordie Haley and Andrew Jackson and some run the whole gamut of musical genres like Lukas Pearse and Doug Cameron, while Tim Crofts is a dedicated free jazz player as well as probably the busiest jazz educator in Halifax. It won't be dull!
