Creative things to see and do courtesy of the Arts Council & friends

Those fabulously creative people at the Arts Council are back with their weekly round-up of events for you to savour - if you have an event you'd like them to promote you can get in touch here and let us know too as we noticed our very own Julian Vilarrubi has a new exhibition running from 2nd - 25th April so you have a few more days left to see it!!
An exhibition of recent paintings by Julian Vilarrubi of the view from Studio 4S0 at Phoenix Art Space.
This exhibition explores the idea of how a single view from a particular vantage point might be changing from one moment to the next in response to the time of day and the weather conditions.
