Go on & treat yourself… after all, Spring is in the air and it is the Queen’s Jubilee! Head on down to the south coast in search another Queen – The Queen Charlotte, the “liveliest new arts and entertainment venue” in Ramsgate where you will find Black Queens, White Lies, Red Herrings, an exhibition by Dick Jewell – an artistic ragamuffin if ever there was one.
Sadly, I missed the opening for Black Queens, White Lies, Red Herrings but one can be sure that will be some excellent and most controversial pieces on display from this wayward film maker, photographer and montage artist…. the last time I saw him he was talking someone through the reggae soundtrack to his Super 8 film of skinheads in Brick Lane in the Seventies. Have I said enough?
To view Dick’s works and then partake of fine wines and choice beers you need to locate The Queen Charlotte at 57 Addington Street. It’s open Thurs & Friday (5.30 – 11pm) + Saturday (5.30 – 12pm) and the show continues until April 7th.
You can check out Dick’s site – http://www.dickjewell.com/– for a little taste …. and as a staunch republican I’m definitely lovin’ that flyer!
