Film & Video. Lunch & Dinner.

Last Tuesday saw the first of a month long series of films organised by the Art Academy and G. Leddington taking place at Islington Mill. The focus for the inaugural Film & Video Lunch & Dinner was early experimental film and video anthology. Over the next three Tuesdays (25th, 1st and 8th) we will have more films for you. There will be a program of short films at lunchtime, starting 1pm and lasting one hour and then one or two longer feature length films in the evening starting at 7pm. We will be serving food for the evening screnings from 6.30pm. If you would like to come along or would like details of the films we will be showing, please email: artacademy@islingtonmill.com 
We hope to see you there.

Sheffield Gallery Visits



A group trip across the Pennines for the Art Sheffield festival. While there, we took in shows at Bloc, Sylvester Space, Millenium Galleries, S1 artspace, Yorkshire artspace and Site Gallery. The very welcoming people at Bloc showed us round some of the artist studios there. Andrew, who has lived in Sheffield previously was our tour-guide for the day and took us to some places of interest including some George Fullard sculptures and the Blue Moon cafe. We were accompanied on the trip by some artists from Italy and Romania, Teresa, Gigliola and Madalin who have been staying with us at Islington Mill for the past week while working on a project with Salford University.
