As winter truly sets in across WA, there are some great events coming our way this August. Read on for details on DivaLicious - Defying Gravity!, Comedy Gold and Pyrography...
WA Music Launches Demos from The Wheatbelt Compilation 30th August at Cummins Theatre, Merredin.
In March this year, ten artists from WA’s Wheatbelt region travelled to Merredin’s iconic Cummins Theatre to record their original songs. The fresh harvest of new tracks was recorded under the watchful ears of award winning producers Matt Gio, Dan Carroll and Andy Lawson. For some of the artists, it was first chance they’d had to set foot in a professional studio.
Winter is no time to be hibernating, with the exciting program of events that's coming to Narrogin!
Mortality, vitality and virility are all under the knife as cutting-edge classics mix with the best of Broadway in this Botox-pumping, lipo-sucking, wrinkle-relaxing cabaret! Early Bird tickets available for 24 hours only, on Wednesday 10th July.
When the regional community of Narrogin comes to mind, it elicits thoughts of the agricultural industry, wheat, sheep and hay farming, as well as sporting identities, including Barry Cable, Bevan George and Shaun Marsh who once lived in the town. But away from all the paddocks, shearing sheds and hockey turfs, an emerging, prize-winning artist flies under the public radar, going about her business with little attention or fanfare.
It's that time of year again, with the cold weather finally setting in and the end-of-financial-year mayhem quickly approaching. We've found a few ways to help beat the winter blues... Show your support for local author Joshua Pomykala at the launch of his debut novel 'The boy in Black' this Friday evening. Join us for an exciting series of workshops which are running alongside the Machines & Makers exhibition. Venture out for a night of magic and mystery in July, at Confessions of a Magician.
May? Already? Well...not quite! We are getting in a little early for this month because there is so much on. Tickets are still available (although they have been selling like hot cakes) for Hamish Newman and Laura van Rijn's fundraising recital for the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Local artist Casey Thornton's debut solo exhibition opens at NEXIS, the circus-antics of The Purple People Show are coming to the Town Hall, and improv comedy show The Big HOO-HAA will be providing belly laughs for those over 18 years. There will be more music, more exhibitions and the Narrogin Repertory Club's performance 'The Pink Pearl' to keep you busy throughout May.
Through a series of exquisitely painted portraits that meticulously capture a range of people in various states of contemplative solitude, Narrogin artist, Casey Thornton, creates a rare opportunity for visitors to escape the hustle and bustle of their modern lives to relish a moment of peaceful calm and reflection.
We have an absolute smorgasbord of events coming up over the next couple of months. Read ahead for details on Flickerfest, Baroque By Candlelight and NEXIS Artist & Curator Floor talks.
Artists, curators and photographers from the Narrogin region are contributing to a legacy of positive impact for WA’s cultural industries as key collaborators in the development of a ground-breaking series of fourteen inter-connected exhibitions titled ‘The Alternative Archive’.
