Resident artist, Rhonda Simmonds has once again created a truely unique and thought provoking exhibit. Using shoes as a platform, Simmonds explores the age old question of soulmates or rather ‘solemates’. The exhibit is on display at the Ranger Station Art Gallery until the end of May – if you haven’t stopped in yet, you’ll want to make sure you do.

The Harrison Festival‘s Mothers Day presentation of Jake’s Gift, was absolute perfection – some of the best theatre I’ve seen in a long time. A one woman tour de force written and performed by Julia Mackey, the piece was both heart breaking and surprisingly light hearted. The plot centres around two characters, a Canadian World War II veteran who reluctantly returns to Normandy, France, for the 60th Anniversary of the D-Day invasion and Isabelle, a precocious 10-year-old from the local village whose inquisitive nature and charm challenges Jake to confront some long-ignored ghosts – most notably the war-time death of his eldest brother, Chester. This mutli-award winning Canadian play truely delivers both in performance and story.
