Last-minute Touches by Baz East

Paintings and Haiku

Once again Carre Gallery supports Sleaford Live by staging a two-week exhibition of images celebrating performing arts.  The Sleaford Hub Writers will create Haiku poetry especially for these images and each short poem will be added to the exhibition alongside its partner image for Sleaford Live Week (04 – 13 May).

You too are invited to drop into the gallery and compose Haiku on the theme of performing arts, taking your inspiration from the exhibition.  Haiku is three lines long and ideally (but not necessarily) contains 17 syllables arranged in the order 5-7-5 as shown in the example below, which also contains your instructions!

Performing Arts Haiku

Look at a painting,

See colour, movement and life –

Then let your words sing.

Write your Haiku on the simple entry form (available in the gallery) and hand in at the desk.  Prizes will be awarded for best modern Haiku in two age categories, under 16 and over 16.  There will also be an award for the best traditional Haiku.

In the Mood by Carol Bratley

The Somersby and Bainton rooms have an excellent mixture of images on the theme of Performing Art while the Candlesby room displays a mixed exhibition of various subject matter to give you a wide source of inspiration. Anyone can do it, young or old; so come in and have a go.

Exhibition Opening:  10 am – 4 pm every day from Mon 30 April until Sat 12 May.
