April Arts Events

Photography prevails 

There are two photographic exhibitions currently showing in St Peter Port that are worth a visit:

Inside View – 
Guernsey prisoners share insights into their closed world through exceptional photographs at the Gatehouse Gallery at Queen Elizabeth College until 20 April (weekends only). The project led by Jean- Christophe Godet demanded a degree of creativity and commitment by the prisoners which resulted in raised self esteem and confidence amongst those who took part.  An exhibition of hand crafted ‘vessels; by Maryjane Orley follows on Friday 25 April.   www.gatehousegallery.org.uk

Hugo in Exile –
Slovenian/French photographer, Klavdij Sluban explores Hauteville at the Candie Museum and Art Gallery in an exhibition running until 14 September commissioned by the Guernsey Photography Festival, Guernsey Arts Commission and Les Maisons de Victor Hugo.  www.visitguernsey.com   www.museums.gov.gg
