Art Gallery

Varley Art Gallery presents Carol Wainio: The Book, a visual artist’s research into the history and evolution of fairytales. These multi-faceted works explore the changing nature of illustrations, but also serve as a point of departure for a reflection on contemporary concerns linked to globalization, poverty and the environment. Kindred Spirits Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Kristian Alexander, compliments the exhibition with a performance of contemporary music by Sibelius, Morawetz, and Dohnányi. Share a glass of Champagne with the musicians after the concert in celebration of Mother's Day.
