Infinitus show two for one
Alex Cheung did not think there was much else he could do in the world, except play music.
Cheung was pretty lazy and much of his attention was spent on thwarting his twin brother’s hare-brained schemes. He was finally able to strike a balance between university studies while keeping a close eye on his twin.
Infinitus will be playing at the Capitol Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 29 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets $18 adult, $16 senior (65+) are available at the Rollin Art Centre. All tix at the door are $20.
Landscape for exploration
For Kristen Russell, creating art is a way of relaxing while exploring.
Creating artwork is a learning process that takes skill, practice and patience.
She feels that the process and the discoveries along the way are more important than the finished product.
‘Explorations of Landscape’ runs until Wednesday, Feb. 2, Tuesday to Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission to the wheelchair accessible gallery is free.
