Hiroshige’s Japan: Views of Mount Fuji - Exhibition at Broadway Museum & Art Gallery

Utagawa Hiroshige (1797 – 1858) is one of the best known of all Japanese woodblock print designers. He is particularly renowned for his landscape prints, which are among the most frequently reproduced of all Japanese works of art. These were hugely successful both in Japan and in the West. Their unusual compositions and masterly expression of weather, light, and season proved enormously influential for many leading European artists, including Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh.

This touring exhibition, from the Ashmolean Museum’s Eastern Art collection, includes over 20 views of Mount Fuji from several different Hiroshige series; some devoted entirely to Fuji and others in which Fuji appears in views of Edo or is seen from the Tokaido Road.

Ninebarrow Concert at St Michael's Church, Broadway

Ninebarrow Concert at St Michael's Church starts at 7:30pm (with doors at 7pm). Tickets are £12.50 and are available from either Shellie broadwaycofe@gmail.com & 01386 852352, or Shopwright (High Street, Broadway). 

In a few short years, the Dorset-based duo Ninebarrow have carved themselves a distinctive niche on the folk roots scene for their outstanding harmonies, delicate instrumentation and engaging songs. In 2017, they were unsurprisingly nominated at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in the ’Horizon’ category for ‘Best Emerging Artist’. One of the highest accolades in their genre, it was made even more exceptional because it was only a few months prior to this that Jon Whitley and Jay LaBouchardiere relinquished their jobs as a teacher and GP in favour of a full-time music career – an act of faith that has clearly paid dividends.

Art of The Great War 1914 – 1918 ~ Exhibition at Broadway Museum & Art Gallery

In partnership with the 2018 Broadway Arts Festival, the Broadway Museum and Art Gallery is delighted to be hosting the major Festival Exhibition, Art of The Great War 1914-1918, to honour the Centenary of the Armistice of November 11th 1918. The works on show will comprise original art and prints of the period, all from the John Noott Collection, in an attempt to portray the horror – and some of the humour – of a conflict that devastated the lives of millions of people. John Noott was born in 1932, and amongst his earliest memories is talk of the Great War – his father Stanley spent four years in the Royal Army Medical Corps, and young John was fascinated when his father attended Remembrance services, bowler hat and service medals on display. The second war followed, from 1939 to 1945, and at age seven John was well aware of the danger the country was in, and his memories of that period are still clear. For the last fifty years, John has been a successful art dealer, and when, during that time, artwork depicting either war has come his way he has put it to one side, enabling exhibitions of this type to be mounted. He sees them as an opportunity educate, to explain something of the history of the Twentieth Century.
