Referendum One

Referendum One

Probably not going to be any better day to bring you this interview than today. Recorded on Sunday at The Vine in Roseangle we spoke to Dundee born author and collector Andrew David Doyle who introduced us to a painting called “Referendum One”.  Andrew explains how he came to be collecting art and the historical documents signed by some very famous people. He also told us about his spy novel Jute, Jam and Jesse James.

Cantiones Raise the Roof

Cantiones Raise the Roof

Cantiones Raise the Roof

The Dundee Channel last recorded Cantiones Sacrae in the first year we launched. We are happy to share details of their upcoming concert to raise funds following thefts from the church where they regularly perform.

Cantiones Sacrae is a vocal ensemble that specialises in polyphonic choral music of the Renaissance period although the group also sings music composed in later centuries and compositions by contemporary composers. The group sings all its music unaccompanied with one voice per part, the purity of the voices giving Cantiones Sacrae its distinctive sound. The members of Cantiones Sacrae have adopted St Salvador’s Church in Dundee as their “home” and recorded their most recent CD “Renaissance” in its wonderful acoustic. The Members of CANTIONES SACRAE are: Linda Dallas (Soprano) Lisa Rose (Alto) Jonathan Matheson-Dear (Tenor) Graeme Adamson (Bass)

Saturday 20th September at 7.30pm features an hour-long concert of some of Cantiones Sacrae’s favourite music wholly in aid of St Salvador’s Church to aid roof restoration following two recent lead thefts.

St Salvador’s Church
St Salvador Street, Dundee, DD3 7EW
Access by Carnegie Street (off Alexander St)
or Glamis Street (off Main St)

Including music by Byrd, Wilton, Tallis, Padilla, Palestrina, Farrant, Guerrero, Lotti, Dowland, Kwasniewski, Gabrieli, Taverner, and Victoria

ADMISSION *£5 at the door
*Additional donations welcomed before or after the concert to defray church roof repair costs. Tickets not on sale in advance

Jeepers Creepers The works of Eduardo Paolozzi from Dundee Collections

Jeepers Creepers The works of Eduardo Paolozzi from Dundee Collections

Jeepers Creepers The works of Eduardo Paolozzi from Dundee Collections

A selection of work by Eduardo Paolozzi, arguably one of the most inventive artists of the 20th Century, will be on display in a temporary exhibition at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery and Museum.

This exhibition was created following repeated requests by regular visitors to see Paolozzi’s Ettso, a large scale sculpture that is held within the Dundee Collections and was a popular element of the permanent display prior to the redevelopment of The McManus. Central to this new display is the major work Jeepers Creepers which Paolozzi gave to the City in 1972. These two works are augmented by prints from the City of Dundee and the University of Dundee’s collections, thus bringing all Paolozzi’s works in Dundee collections together for the first time.

Paolozzi’s work spans a huge range of media and subject matter, driven by his insatiable curiosity and imagination. He developed a series of distinct styles in a range of media – ultimately becoming best known as a sculptor and printmaker. His early exposure to Surrealism was an enduring influence and his appropriation and reworking of found images and forms can be credited, in part, to their passion for collage. He had a fascination with science, technology and popular culture creating works were the antithesis of the calm, ordered minimalism that was prevalent in British art of the time.

Admission Free.
The exhibition will run from Saturday 13 September to Sunday 2 November 2014.
