Ealing Autumn Festival On The Move

Truth and Reconciliation gets to Perivale Library

Jubilee Gardens Open day Mudasser Rohani

Ealing Autumn Festival’s Truth and Reconciliation exhibition is on the move again as its unique collection of paintings are displayed in libraries across the borough.

Perivale Library is the latest port of call for the artwork, depicting Truth and Reconciliation with a special reference to Shakespeare in the playwright’s 400th year, which is now on display until July 7.

There is an open day at the library on Saturday, June 25 (2-4pm) which will include the opportunity take part in a public collage of the exhibition, while music will feature with a unique game to compose your own piece of music, called ‘The Digitl MozArt.’

Using a grid numbers are picked at random from each column by throwing two dice. Each number on the grid refers to a short piece of music and by throwing the dice for each column you finish up with a whole piece of music.

Visitors have been admiring paintings by members of the Hanwell based 4020 Art Group since the exhibition launched at Ealing Central Library in April as part of this year’s festival, and it has just enjoyed a successful stay at Jubilee Gardens Library in Southall.

Festival artistic director Gillian Spragg said: “Visitors to Jubilee Gardens were impressed by the paintings and also took part in the public collage of the exhibition. Members of Ealing Quilters and Jubilee Gardens Knitting Group showed off their craft skills and encouraged people to try out some new techniques of working fabric for the collage.

“Many families took part in making letters for the collage and it really seems to have caught on. The parents show their children what to do and then make their own letters too. It has encouraged people to think a little more about the meaning of Truth and Reconciliation.”
