A Complete History of the Beatles… Sort of… A Faculty Lecture by George Firehorse.

To mark a full fifty years since the break up of the Beatles we’ve asked George Firehorse to dust off his entire history of the Fab Four which he will present in the form of a comedy lecture that includes slides, audio, magic and mayhem. It’s not peer reviewed and it’s not completely fact checked but it’s a LOT of fun.

George burst on to the comedy scene in 2008 with a unique blend, of nonsense, magic, mayhem and wit. Ever since George has been winning audiences over with a visual and quirky act executed by a likeable if somewhat peculiar performer.

Exhibition-‘(de)construct’
May 7 @ 6:00 pm – Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm

A series of new collages, drawings and poster prints inspired by the Brutalist architecture
of the Ulster Museum in Belfast, taking shapes and forms from architect Francis Pym’s
cubist concrete structure.

Drawings of the building are translated into shapes then collaged, reconfigured in different
ways. The layering of various viewpoints of this mid-century modernist building makes new abstract compositions.

The collages incorporate cardboard from discarded packaging. This card stock is excellent for collaging with its variety of tones and textures. The fold lines & glue marks on the card are integrated in to works as they echo the construction lines and ageing process of Pym’s concrete statement.

Details of the making process can be seen on Instagram @heraldblack

Real Sketchy
Jul 2 @ 9:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Since November 2012 Seedhead Arts has been running and developing Real Sketchy, a open live sketching event taking place in a bar environment. Over the years it’s developed from something that was largely populated by artists to being somewhere that anyone can have a wee sketch and a laugh over a few pints.

Although inspired by the spirit of Street Art, we’re really interested in the cross-pollenisation of different disciplines like comic, illustration, design, etc and how this plays out in a live environment, in a crowd of people with a wide range of skills and backgrounds. Plus beer. And music.

Thanks to sponsorship from Ink Monkey in North Street we are now able to provide pens, pencils and paper for everyone.
