Wall to wall talent
Twenty of the UK's top artists will be joining forces to showcase their work when Meander and Mooch brings a unique new exhibition to Newark next month...
After a private view and launch party on Friday 7 February, The Wall opens to the public at 10am on Saturday 8 February, when visitors will be able to meet some of the artists as they explore what's on show in the gallery.
One of those whose paintings are featured is the aptly-named Jackie Whall, who together with gallery owner Susi Wright joins the Girls Around Town next weekend to talk about the three-week event and some of the stories behind it.
"Our aim is to take people on a journey through walls in history and music, from the Berlin Wall to Bowie's Heroes and Pink Floyd's unforgettable film and music The Wall," says Susi.
"And if you're a fan of Pink Floyd, there's another treat in store for you in Newark too, with tribute band Think Floyd performing the music from The Wall at the Palace Theatre on the evening of Friday 7 February.
"No prizes for guessing where we'll be headed after our own launch party!"
Join June and Rachel on 107.8FM or listen online between 10am and 12 noon next Sunday to hear what Susi and Jackie have to say about the exhibition and find out how you can even add your own personal touch to the event.
"We'll be raising money for Beaumond House Community Hospice and, for a small donation, visitors will be able to write their own message to a loved one on the wall in the gallery window to help support this worthwhile charity," adds Susi.
