Saturday 24 June 'Approaching Nocturne' 3pm - 7pm Studio24, Mabgate, Leeds LS9 7DZ:
Twelve artists come together to respond to our latest programme, which explores the theme of night. 'Approaching Nocturne' is an art event which brings to fruition a six month period of collaboration between the artists and the choir, and will include drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, soundscape and dance. The space will be open from 3pm with three live performances from Cantabile during the evening.
We wish to encourage visitors to spend time with the works, the Choir and the specially curated soundscape, so the gallery space, bar and soundscape recordings will be available until late. All ages are welcome.
We ask visitors to 'pay as you feel' (recommended £5 - £10) with all proceeds, after core expense have been met, being donated to the Batten Disease Family Association.
