Fine art and fine music

There were visual and musical treats at the Elysian centre during the jazz festival weekend, with exhibitions of fine art photography and ceramics, accompanied by the music of the Robert Reid jazz duo.

A viewing of the works of photographer Desi Fontaine’s fine art photos and Colin Griffith’s ceramics kicked off the weekend on Friday evening, with guests enjoying a range of complimentary wines. The exhibitions continued until close of play on Monday evening, drawing a steady crowd of art lovers. On Saturday afternoon visitors were also able to enjoy the relaxed jazz combo of Robert Reid on piano accompanied by double bassist Jerome Davies.

Holding a summer exhibition during the jazz festival was a great idea and here’s looking towards a repeat in 2019. For further information about Desi Fontaine’s work visit her website
