3.   Easter Exhibition



1.  Julie and Julia tonight!  (Thursday 25 March)

Passion. Ambition. Butter. Do You Have What It Takes?

Director Nora Ephron brings the doyenne of French cookery in the US – and her culinary disciple – to vibrant life. Julie & Julia is a celebration of Julia Child, a woman most famous for her glorification of French cuisine. Her book ‘Mastering the Art of French Cooking’ introduced bouillabaisse and sole meuniere to suburban America, and her idiosyncratic television shows are fondly remembered still. Julie Powell found early, less enduring fame in her 30s by writing a blog as she cooked her way through Child's most famous work. In 2005, this became the bestseller, ‘Julie & Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen’.

Films are screened at The Guildhall, Victoria Road, Dartmouth. The bar is open from 7.30pm and the films start approx. 8pm.  Guest tickets are available on the night for £3.50 each from  "The Windjammer"  Victoria Road between 7.30pm & 7.55pm only.  No guest tickets will be sold on the door.  To join Dartmouth Film Society, or for more information, call Rob Bird on  01803 835849

3.   Easter Exhibition - Spring is on the way!

Paul Reach from The D'Art Gallery reports:  Spring is creeping up on us again, slowly, and we are preparing for our first exhibition of 2010. Featuring some of our regular gallery artists, this exhibition illustrates the high standards attained by our regular contributors.

Chris Forsey has been a great discovery with interest growing as we exhibit more examples of his work. Favourites such as Cyril Croucher and Nicholas StJohn Rosse continue to impress with their ability to convey an emotional connection with their subjects. Amanda Hoskins has again been walking on the cliffs around Dartmouth capturing the unique light and colour of the west country coast, and Jan Nelson has paid another visit to portray activities on the water with her energetic and colourful paintings of yachts on the river.

Dionne Sievewright has been with the Dart Gallery for 6 years and still excites with her strong colours but tranquil compositions - four new pieces are in this exhibition. In addition we have new work from Tony Amos, Martin Procter and Rosa Sepple RI, three artists who are now well established at the Dart Gallery.  Click here to see thier work.
