    Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s Virtual Exhibition

    If the four walls of your home are starting to feel a little too familiar during these uncertain times, then why not escape on a virtual tour of Richmond & Twickenham Photographic Society’s annual exhibition which is running on-line from Thursday 1 April until Thursday 20 May 2021.  

    You’ll be able to immerse yourself in some stunning landscapes, beautiful wildlife and some thought provoking portraits and street scenes from a photographic society which is one of the largest and oldest in the country.  Once again the work of GCSE and A level students at St. Catherine’s School for Girls in Twickenham will be going on display. 

    The show, which boasts over 300 images, is set in a 3D museum space, so visitors can explore the rooms independently or be guided around the exhibition. It’s free and can be accessed from a link on the society’s website: www.rtps.org.uk

    The society has around 120 members from beginners to professionals and new members are warmly welcome.  Email info@rtps.org.uk for details of how to join.Richmond & Twickenham PS’s annual and popular exhibition is normally held at the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington and hopes to return there in 2022. And while no digital encounter can fully emulate the physical experience of visiting an exhibition, the virtual platform which RTPS has embodied, comes very close.

    Exhibition Navigation: The exhibition takes the form of a number of discrete rooms. this approach has been taken to facilitate the ease of navigation for the viewer.  There are four rooms to visit in total.  The Landmark, Charnock and St. Luke's rooms showcase the RTPS members' panels.  Each panel has an introduction to provide the viewer with an insight into the author's thinking, it is then followed with a panel overview to show the viewer the images in the author's desired layout and then finally, there is the opportunity to see each individual image close up.  The St. Catherine's room showcases the work of A level and GCSE students from St. Catherine's School for Girls in Twickenham.

    It is highly recommended the viewer takes the guided tour which takes the viewer around the rooms in the order designed by the curators.

    Here I Made This: Dialogues of Distance by Pollen Collective

    Participating Artists: Luke White, Julie Derbyshire, Rachna Garodia, Kate Lowe, Nazanin Moradi, Harriet Hoult, Isis Ellis, Leonora Lockhart, Amy Robson

    Curated by Vanessa Giorgo

    A group of multidisciplinary artists from London-based Pollen Collective challenge the constraints of the past year, working together to create mixed-media collages, photographs, sculptures, paintings, and installations

    Using technological platforms, socially distant meetings and postal art chains, the artists have been able to make, share and collaborate in the true spirit of a collective.  Despite the practical and existential fears, burdens and constraints of the past year, Pollen Collective artists have produced an uplifting exhibition of handcrafted, enigmatic work.  The historic setting of One Paved Court’s restored Georgian townhouse echoes the show’s themes of domesticity, shelter, and community and showcases innovative, experimental work across a variety of media.

    Artists Talk: Thurs 13 May, 5 pm. Free on Zoom. All welcome. Book via One Paved Court’s website

    In Flagrante Choir 2020

    In Flagrante’s signature song has long been the uplifting Cat Stevens' song which starts “ If you want to sing out, sing out”, and this has kept us going during lockdown.

    Over the past months, the number of choir singers has grown, our repertoire has grown and our hair has grown!

    Nothing was going to stop us singing out, and we have kept going - either meeting face to face or on-line, under the direction of our amazing Musical Director, 

    Eamonn O’Dwyer (https://www.eamonnodwyer.com

    Rehearsals start with a warm-up, focusing on breathing techniques and unique tongue twisters to stimulate diction!  

    Eamonn works with a mixture of repertoire - short and sweet, old and new (often including his unique, glorious, musical arrangements) - revising each singing part and leading to a performance from the whole choir.    Choir sessions resulting in on-line concerts have provided our weekly fix of fun.  Singers are a very friendly bunch and new recruits - all ages, all voices - are most welcome.

    If you can hum a tune, you can sing -  a love of music is all you need …. does this sound like the start of a good song title?! 

    For the moment we will continue to meet on-line on a Tuesday night at 19.30 hrs.

    If you are interested in having a go at singing please contact Cathy at catherine@cjhenergy.co.uk.

     

    Or have a look at our website  

     

     We would LOVE to hear from you 🎵

    Discover the fascinating history of what Horace Walpole, creator of Strawberry Hill House & Garden, called his "enchanted little landscape", set on the banks of the River Thames in Twickenham. You’ll walk across lawns where Pavlova danced, an elephant marched, and parties lasted long into the night – while at every turn a new vista of Walpole’s magnificent white Gothic castle will delight the eye as it has done for 270 years. No wonder he called Strawberry Hill his “land of beauties.”
