WAM June 25-26 On Weekend AM
The New Chair of the Newfoundland and Labrador Arts Council, Tom Gordon, tells host Mack Furlong what he thinks the role of the NLAC in the province is. Summer exhibitions at the Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Campus art gallery include Rare Reflections, a two-person show created by a textile artist and a jeweller. Hilary Rice and Wesley Harris talk about what they have in common. A heartbreaking, yet heart-warming, story of a battle for life is onstage in St. John’s next week with a production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Wit. Director Danielle Irvine and actor Wendi Smallwood tell us about the attractions to a play about a woman who is soon to die. A show of work by the Labrador West Visual Arts Association may be their last - we’ll hear about the dilemma in Lab West. Liner Notes features the new disc of re-made re-modelled tunes from Newfoundland and Labrador by the Modern Archetypes.
