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

Easter Exhibition - Spring is on the way!
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.
