The Artist & The Mirror

The Artist & The Paint Pot

Welcome to ACE Creatives’ collaborative arts project, ‘Image’. ‘Image’ was one of the themes explored in my interactive art exhibition at Leeds Central Library, ‘Vision 2014 Inside Out’.

‘Reflection’ by Metube Framing is an art piece made from natural & recycled materials, including wood & kitchen roll tubes.  As a RAD, a Recycling Artistic Designer, I recycle everyday objects into things that are both functional & aesthetic.

The mirror is a household object that has been used over the centuries as a luxury cosmetic item, dating as far back as 6000 BC. In Turkey, then known as Anatolia, ancient mirrors were made of polished stone or burnished metal & were very dark, requiring frequent polishing.  The use of glass coated with metals to increase the reflectivity dates back to the first century AD.  The mirror has also historically been used to start fires, send codes or messages & now is an integral part of a solar power plant.

Mirrors have a historic relevance as appearance has always dominated much of society’s lifestyle.  The word ‘mirror’ is derived from the Latin ‘mirari’, ‘to wonder at’, & is still present in the Spanish ‘mirar’, ‘to look’.  As part of this arts project exploring image, I am collating ideas for my next art exhibition & would love to receive your comments about this topic with regards to the questions on the following link:

Autumn Variety Concert 2017

Pair set to perform for charity

GAUDETE, the York duo of writer/singer/performers Sylvie-D and Joshua Kohlmann, will perform in aid of Tearfund at Saturday’s Autumn Variety Concert at All Saints’ Church, Upper Poppleton, York.

Formed in York in 2016, Gaudete have raised more than £2,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Tearfund, the Ruach Project and Bolton Hospice through their concerts.

This weekend they will present a collection of classical, jazz and crowd pleasers and in addition Sylvie-D will premiere her latest song, ‘Lights In San Francisco’.

Earlier this year, Gaudete recorded their debut EP Four Suits, produced by Will Jackson at Soundworks Studios and now on sale at £10 at Vinyl Eddie, Tadcaster Road, and via: http://acecreatives.co.uk

“It comprises four original pieces that address environmental, social and spiritual themes,” says Sylvie-D. “The first song, Street Gazers, is the start of our musical journey, set in the context of El Piano, the Anglo-Spanish restaurant in Grape Lane where we were first inspired to collaborate.”

Presented by The Poppletones, Saturday’s 7.30pm bill also will feature concert pianist, organist and accompanist Cynthia Wood; composer, singer, guitarist and tuba player John Stuart and a selection of songs by The Poppletones choir themselves.

Founded by Elizabeth Cracknell, the choir has been running for 17 years under the expert leadership of Ian Woods, performing their madrigals, folk songs, light pop, show tunes and inspirational music.

  • Tickets for Saturday cost £7.50, including wine and nibbles, and can be ordered from Helen and David Fatkin on 01904 795900 or in person at Cardland, the newsagents in Allerton Drive, Nether Poppleton, or on 01904 795036.
