Upper Nithsdale community arts centre continues its programme of art and music for August with a return visit from a popular singer songwriter, a showcase of work by a local art group and an exhibition linked to Charles Jencks’ nearby major land art project, Crawick Multiverse.
The Multiverse exhibition is currently running in the small craft room on the first floor of A’ the Airts. It includes some original artwork used by Jencks during the planning of the artland, plus two original costumes by Alex Rigg which were worn by the performers during the official launch event in June. Information boards and a 3D model of the Multiverse are also on display.
UK-based French/Swiss singer songwriter, Claude Bourbon, is renowned for his individual and talented take on a wide range of musical traditions and he comes to A’ the Airts in Sanquhar on Sunday, August 23 at 7.30pm. Based in the UK, Claude is known throughout Europe and America for his breath-taking song and guitar performances that take blues, Spanish, Middle Eastern and Russian stylings into uncharted territories.
Tickets, £8, can be pre-booked in advance from A’ the Airts, tel 01659 50514. Doors open 7pm and there is a licensed bar.
