Willock & Sax Gallery (Banff) presents "What Can I Say?" A poetry book launch by Charles Noble and an exhibition of paintings by Allan Harding MacKay RCA. Allan Harding MacKay's work Boreal Smouldering is the front cover image for Charles Noble's new collection of poems. Therefore, it is fitting to coordinate an exhibition of Harding MacKay's evocative pieces with the launch of Noble's book. Join them for poetry readings surrounded by the Boreal Forest. Denying the literal depiction of landscape in his paintings does not mean that Allan Harding MacKay engages any less with the place. It is clear that he is caught up with its drama, its light, and its inevitable evolution. Utilizing a long list of media, including wax and inkjet, the artist manipulates and compresses visual information into a pre-determined squared format that quietly references the sublime intent of 19th C.

The hilarious true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, the most eccentric singer in the world. Known as“the first lady of the sliding scale,” she warbled and screeched her way through the evening to audiences who mostly fell about with laughter. But what motivated her was the love of singing, music, and an audience! This is the spirited, comedic story of Florence and her bewildered but talented pianist—and how they packed Carnegie Hall to deliver the spirit of the music, if not the actual notes! Matinees start at 1:30 pm with Sunday shows starting at 2:00 pm. The evening shows start at 8:00 pm.
