This Thursday sees the launch of the O3 Gallery's new events programme:'Alternative Thursdays' - A series of gallery gigs, artists talks, art-jewellery celebrations and spoken word readings that will take place from 6pm-8pm, every Thursday that the gallery has an exhibition open (4 weeks out of every 5). We kick-start the programme with a gallery gig featuring local band the Cogwheel Dogs.
COGWHEEL DOGS is a guitar / cello / vocals duo doing its utmost to sound nothing like a guitar / cello / vocals duo. Combining the energy of punk with an experimental attitude to sound and arrangement – but retaining a folk-like melodic backbone. Based in Oxford, Cogwheel Dogs have been playing together since some time in 2005. Songs are recorded in a small attic, amidst a mess of wires, canvases, coat-hangers and cobwebs.
Please note there will a small admission charge on the door.

My new favourite blog is that of French artist, photographer and fashion designer Barbara Berrada who owns an amazing children's store called Les Zigous. You can have a sneak preview of her cool apartment in this Design Sponge Article I think I even spotted one of my favourite Camilla Engman prints on her wall. I could just spend hours looking at the amazing images on her blogs on www.zigouis.blogspot.com and www.barbarberrada.blogspot.com Both really worth checking out.

There's a call by OVADA for artists working in new media to produce and show new work that responds to the physical space or history of the Town Hall. Because it's a site specific project the organisers have arranged tours for the artists to view the spaces, before submitting a proposal.
