NEIL SQUARED: A Tribute to Neil Young and Neil Diamond
May 31 @ 7:30 pm

Neil Squared is a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond by award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka.

Largely influenced by the sounds of the 70’s, award winning singer/songwriter Kenny Byrka has taken the works from two of his favourite artists who began their magnanimous careers during this era and developed a stunning 80 minute tribute to both Neil Young and Neil Diamond. The contrast between the two from a vocal and writing perspective is obvious, yet Kenny emulates both with precision, character and creative parameters, fuelled by his multi-instrumental abilities and diverse vocal range. Neil Squared is a collection of the classic songs from each artist, assembled for your enjoyment and to celebration the richness of words and music from two musical legends.

The Neil Squared concert series is in support of mental health initiatives. All Atlantic shows will donate a portion of proceeds to the No Time for That Anti-Bullying Society.  www.NTFT.ca

In Shakespeare’s great drama of loss and reconciliation, a long-deposed ruler uses magical arts to bring within her power the enemies who robbed her of her throne and marooned her on a remote island. But what revenge does she mean to take?

FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf
Jun 18 @ 7:30 pm

Special Event Celebrating National Garden Week

Doors open at 6:30pm for wine & cheese; displays from local garden groups; door prizes.

 

“For me, garden design isn’t just about plants, it is about emotion, atmosphere, a sense of contemplation. You try to move people with what you do. You look at this, and it goes deeper than what you see. It reminds you of something in the genes — nature, or the longing for nature.”
– Piet Oudolf

Thanks to our partners from the Historic Gardens, Champlain Garden Club, Bunchberry, Thexton’s, Bainton’s Books, Nikian Enterprises, Beswick Flowers, and Oakhaven Farm.

————————————————–

After completing a feature documentary on New York’s High Line, award-winning filmmaker Thomas Piper met the inspirational designer and plantsman, Piet Oudolf, and the idea for a new project was born. The documentary, FIVE SEASONS: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf, immerses viewers in Oudolf’s work and takes us inside his creative process, from his beautifully abstract sketches, to theories on beauty, to the ecological implications of his ideas.

Intimate discussions take place through all fours seasons in Piet’s own gardens at Hummelo, and on visits to his signature public works in New York, Chicago, and the Netherlands, as well as to the far-flung locations that inspire his genius, including desert wildflowers in West Texas and post-industrial forests in Pennsylvania.

As a narrative thread, the film also follows Oudolf as he designs and installs a major new garden at Hauser & Wirth Somerset, a gallery and arts center in Southwest England, a garden he considers his best work yet.

Piet Oudolf has radically redefined what gardens can be. As Rick Darke, the famous botanist, says to Piet in the film, “your work teaches us to see what what we have been unable to see.” Through poetic cinematography and unique access, FIVE SEASONS will reveal all that Piet sees, and celebrate all that we as viewers have been unable to see.

 

 

Special Film Event Tickets:

$14 Adult, $13 with Film Buff Card. All prices include HST.

**YOUTH GET IN FREE TO THIS FILM.**

Doors will open at 6:30pm for wine & cheese. General admission seating, tickets at the door.
