LOVING VINCENT - THE ART OF VINCENT VAN GOGH IN SECOND LIFE

The  public's on going  fascination with the 19th Century tormented genius Vincent Van Gogh seems set to continue with the recent release of  'Loving Vincent', a remarkable feature length painted animation film.

 To coincide with the release of the film the Blue Lagoon Club has organised an exhibition of over 80 of Van Gogh's paintings on display at the Upper Art Gallery at Harmony Castle.

Each painting is individually labelled
Unfortunately I missed the opening night on Saturday when DJ Colin Scientist played music from the film together with some French classic music contemporary with Van Gogh, but managed to drop in earlier today.

There is a notecard biography of the artist together with notes for all the paintings on display and each work is also individually labelled; reading them I was surprised how close the dates of the paintings were to each other,  Van Gogh clearly had bursts of prodigious creativity.

The Blue Lagoon Club are known for their regular classical music events, the next is a Hungarian and Polish Classical Ball Tuesday 21st November 2.30 - 4pm slt
