Bobinska Brownlee gallery is pleased to present a salon-style season of art, music, poetry, performance, comedy, discussion, food, drink and more, to raise funds for civilians in Ukraine and to demonstrate solidarity with the Woman Life Freedom protest movement in Iran.

Salons take place every Saturday afternoon in March 4-6pm, doors open at 3.30pm.

Saturday 4th March: We kick off the season with ever-popular comic, musician and poet John Hegley with his band, plus a fantastic treat in the form of Dvi Doli, a music duo from Ukraine on the ‘bandura’, an instrument unique to Ukraine.

Saturday 11th March a poetry and performance salon, curated by poet, curator and critic Cherry Smyth, with artists and poets including Caroline Bergvall, Margareta Kern, Petra Palkovacsova, Juwairiah Mussa, Linda Black, Hanna Kumar, Bob Brightt, Steph Morris, Iris Colomb and Keith Jarrett.

Saturday 18th March sees John Hegley present a programme of music, poetry and comedy, accompanied by Eleanor Moreton on violin. Eleanor Moreton is a painter, and her work can be seen in the Generator exhibition at the gallery.

Celebrated artist Susan Collis will premiere and discuss a previously unseen work on Saturday 25th March, just down the road from her solo exhibition at Seventeen gallery.

We are asking for donations of a minimum of £10 to each salon. We're delighted that so many friends and colleagues have offered to take part in this season, and look forward to seeing you all there!
