25 March 2015 to 03 April 2015

Divergencia Cromatica Painting Exhibition


Venue: John Mackintosh Hall

CRISTINA DE MENA 

Born in Tangier, Cristina spent time as a resident of La Línea (Cádiz) before setting in Zaragoza where she still lives today.

Her works, her expresión of colour, are generally a result her visits to the south of Spain. Cristina currently prefer the abstract expressionism of “action painting” as well as themes that create an intense fusion of the sky, clouds and the sea. This current period focuses on divergent expresión, adding to divergente a sense creativity and imagination through which the painting has to reflect an expresión of the subconcious that provokes a random search, always in a positive sense, and offers a meeting point for the diversity of inconscious opinions.

Cristina´s tratment of curves and the intense vivacity of the colours in her works together create a kind of blend of happines and relaxation.

Self-taught, she follows a line drawn out by artist such as Zao Wou Ki, Viola, Reinhard, Rothko and the great expressionists of the 20th Century...In her period closest to the great expressionist, she follows in the footsteps of Rothko, creating the coded trilogy that goes by the name “Remembering”as she had done previously with Zao Wou Ki, and Orus, expressed on a large scala format.

. Her Chinese-influence black works Intend to bring red and white thereads out from a dark background, testifying the contrasted feeling of colour.

. The sea is an constant element around Cristina, she cannot be without it especially when she reflects in her work the breezes of the Straits, bringing back memories of days sailling in the Mediterranean, memories impregnated with images of breaking waves.

. In her “block trilogy” she manifests the polyhedric decomposition of personality in the contemplation of colour.

. Her sparkling works reflect more than any other her divergent expression. Believing the power of converting a canvas into an action painting she is almost overwhelmed by inspiration. By combining a trilogy of white, red and black, she manages to break down the preconception of convergente.

. Sometimes, when particulary inspired, Cristina creates works with an abundante of colour which flows through cascades overflowing with creative expresión conceived through the medioum of the brush, all achieved without any pre-established lines of thought.

Cristina de Mena has participated in many gatherings and exhibitions and her work can be found in following places as well as many others:

Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores de España, Gobierno de Gibraltar, Ministerio de Educación (Angola), Fundacion Oscus (República Dominicana), Fundación San  Valero, Fundación CPA Salduie, Lloyds TSB, Central Cajalón, SEAS, Fine Arts Gallery, Hotel Boston, Hotel Diagonal Plaza,  Consorcio de Abogados de Aragón, Aso.Astro.C.de Gibraltar, Universidad San Jorge, Ayuntamientos Tarazona, Villanueva y Salillas, andPrivates collections.

The Gibraltar Philharmonic Society is glad to announce that it will continue its 2014/2015 season with a recital by pianist Elena Bashkirova on 14th April 2015 at The Convent Ballroom commencing at 20:00 hours, the concert is sponsored by the Parasol Foundation.

“Bashkirova herself represents an impressive role model as a pianist who smartly animates every sound with figurative language and life,” the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung wrote about pianist Elena Bashkirova, who was born in Moscow and studied at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in her father’s (Dimitrij Bashkirov) master class, himself a famous pianist and teacher.

Elena Bashkirova handles the Classical and Romantic repertoire as well as the music of the 20th century. She regularly performs with famous orchestras such as the Hamburg Philharmonic Orchestra and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra, the NDR Symphony, the Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne, Berlin's Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester and Konzerthausorchester, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Orchestre de Paris, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg, the Spanish National Orchestra, the Gulbenkian Foundation Orchestra as well as the Chicago, Dallas and Houston Symphonies.

In 1998, Elena Bashkirova founded the International Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival. In her position as Artistic Director, she creates an annual chamber music event featuring international artists. Since its foundation, the festival has become an important part of Israel’s cultural life. Moreover, the Jerusalem Chamber Music Festival’s appearances are among the pantheon of highly regarded chamber music performances, thrusting it beyond Israel’s borders and onto the world’s musical map. In April 2012, a German partner festival was founded, located at the Jewish Museum Berlin. The concerts are highly esteemed by its audience. The journalist Julia Spinola writes in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, "It is a combination of her musical enthusiasm and her down-to-earth pragmatism what makes the artist Elena Bashkirova so compelling."

Val Woodgate wowed us with Salvador Dalli, and now she is back, this time to lecture about Picasso .

Picasso told his biographer, John Richardson, that his work was like a diary " To understand it, you have to see how it mirrors my life".

This lecture examines the way Picasso's emotional life influenced what he painted and how he painted it.

His response to each new love in his life can be seen in the different styles in which his many woman were represented.

Val is a lecturer and guide in Tate Britain, Tate Modern, and for Tate on cruises.

An opportunity not to be missed for art lovers and in particular Picasso enthusiasts.

The Dance Nationals 2015

‘Selecting the Gibraltar National Dance Team for the

2015 IDO European Championships’

The Gibraltar National Dance Organisation has started its selection process for dancers to compete at the forthcoming IDO European Show Dance Championships that will be held in Gibraltar in October 2015.

The GNDO shall be organising the Gibraltar National Championships from the 7 to 9 May 2015at the John Mackintosh Hall Theatre. The championships will follow the same procedure of national competitions as accredited by the world governing body, the International Dance Organisation. The national show dance competition is open to all individual dancers, groups and schools in the Children, Junior and Adult divisions. The categories for this competition are Solo, Duet and Groups sections.

Dancers who qualify from this competition will join those dancers already selected for the Formation section, and will form the 2015 Gibraltar National Dance Team.

GNDO President, Seamus Byrne said,

The competition is the local qualifier to gain entry into the IDO European Show Dance Championships that will be staged in Gibraltar in October 2015. This is a unique opportunity for local dancers to compete at the prestigious IDO event in our homeland and for them to show the world the high standards that exist locally.

We are therefore hoping that all local dance schools and other individuals will be part of this exciting competition.’

Entry forms are available from local dance schools or by contacting the GNDO on e-mail: gndo@gibtelecom.net. The closing date for entries is Friday 20th March 2015.

The IDO European Championships, which have the full backing of Her Majesty’s Government of Gibraltar, will take place between the 1st and 4th October 2015.

 

Although every edition of the Gibraltar International Song Festival (GISF) has witnessed an increase in the number of songs received, the coming edition – due to be held at the Tercentenary Sports Hall on Saturday 9 May, 2015 – has broken all records. Close to 700 songs have been received, some from surprising countries of origin, such as the United Arab Emirates, India, Indonesia, Malawi and Vietnam.


The full list of the 30 countries from which entries have been received  is as follows (in alphabetical order):Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, France, Georgia, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Malawi, Mexico, Nicaragua, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates, UK, Venezuela and Vietnam.


The undeniable fact is that, year by year, the GISF is reaching an ever-wider international audience, resulting in the receipt of songs of great quality, diversity and cultural/ethnic influences. Each edition also acts as an important shop window for the authors and composers whose songs are sung live on the night, as well as for the singers who perform them. The whole show is live streamed via partners in Latin America, Europe, Russia and surrounding regions, as well as the GISF website itself, to a potential worldwide audience of over 100 million.


GISF is also living proof of one of music’s central premises: that music knows no frontiers. In this, it receives valuable support from the UK’s PRS for Music (the UK’s Performing Right Society) and Spain’s Sociedad General de Autores, y Editores. Both organisations publicise the festival via their internal and website communications with their members, thus reaching both their national and international memberships, providing them with a direct link to the GISF’s own website.

realized that the Fairy made his dream come true:

He turned into a 'One Man Band' and even the fruit and veg had musical sounds!"

DREAM is a dance, visual performance and live music, full of poetic moment and sensations for the whole family.
Audience: For all ages.

A SPECIAL EVENING WITH STEVE HOGARTH & FRIENDS 

CONCERT

Marillion frontman Steve Hogarth will return to Gibraltar for a unique concert that promises to be

unlike any other of his solo performances. The incomparable setting of Saint Michael’s Cave is the

venue for a concert that has already attracted international interest, such is the anticipation for this

special musical event taking place on Saturday 30th May.

The concert, announced today by promoters GibMedia, is fully supported by Gibraltar Cultural

Services and HM Government of Gibraltar and has been made possible thanks to the contribution of

the event’s partners and main sponsors, Isolas and Fiduciary. In addition, the organisers are grateful to

Gibtelecom, Lewis Stagnetto Limited, GibOil, Sovereign Group and Chesterton for sponsoring this

event that forms part of the Gibraltar Spring Festival of Art and Culture.

Steve Hogarth - also known as ‘h’ - is a gifted singer, songwriter and musician who has fronted the

legendary Marillion for over 25 years, helping reinvigorate and constantly redefine the band’s sound

via a succession of inventive, emotional albums like “Brave”, “Marbles”, “Seasons End” or the more

recent “Sounds That Can’t Be Made”. A vibrant musical force, to those who already love Marillion,

they’re something special; to everyone else they're a love affair waiting to happen.

Central to the appeal and success of the Progressive Rock legends over the past 25 years has been the

unmistakable voice and charisma of Steve Hogarth. It was in 2006 that he first embarked on his ‘h

Natural’ solo project, a series of intimate shows featuring just himself and a piano that already graced

Saint Michael’s Cave almost a decade ago and King’s Chapel last year. A good friend of Gibraltar,

Steve was intent on returning: “This will be my fourth time performing in my beloved Gibraltar. Last

year’s Literary Festival gig in the King’s Chapel was truly special for me and I came home with that

rare feeling that I had ‘nailed it’. Must be something in the water… I immediately began hustling to

return, so the chance to play once again in the unique space that is St Michael’s Cave is, well, icing on

the cake. Unlike my usual strictly-solo shows, this time my son, Nial, will join me on stage to play

cajon, and I’m also thrilled to have the fabulous Dave Gregory on hand to play guitar. Can’t wait.”

Nial is an accomplished drummer and this will be the first time father and son perform together,

although Dave Gregory is no stranger to working with Steve. A member of the band XTC for 19 years,

performing on the hits “Making Plans For Nigel”, “Senses Working Overtime” and twelve studio

albums, as well as recording with the likes of Peter Gabriel and Take That’s Mark Owen, Dave is well

known to Marillion fans through his work on Steve Hogarth’s solo album “Ice Cream Genius” and as a

member of Steve’s star-studded h Band. The addition of these special guests will give a different, novel

feel to what is already a show that will appeal to any music lover and not just Marillion fans. Warming

the audience will be the attractive vocals of Megan Dallas, who makes a welcome return to Gibraltar,

before Steve works his magic via a repertoire that will be culled from his 25 years with Marillion but

will also include covers of songs that have touched him throughout his life. Steve will interact with the

audience, accept requests and fill the outstanding acoustics of the Cave with the sounds of David

Bowie, Kate Bush or John Lennon.

This is not the usual ‘h Natural’ show. This is different. For one show only and exclusively in

Gibraltar, this is h (Super)Natural. It’s going to be special. It’s going to be unique. It’s going to

be unforgettable.

Tickets, which include a coach transfer to and from the Cave, are priced at £20 and are available to

purchase from Music Corner as well as online at www.buytickets.gi. Further details on the concert can

be found at www.gibmedia.gi
