The EDGE Glass Gallery presents 'African Light'

The EDGE Glass Gallery presents 'African Light', an exhibition of local and international art glass opening on Sunday, 30 May 2010.
The African Light Exhibition explores the inherent reflective qualities of art glass as they mirror a palette of African colours, shades and textures.

The EDGE Glass Gallery is the country’s only glass gallery representing glass artists from across the world. Founded by glass artist, Nelius Britz, it also incorporates the Cape Glass Studio; the first kiln-formed glass studio of its kind in South Africa. Here, Nelius collaborates with a number of other glass artists for the creation of art glass and commissioned pieces.

Four Cape Town Cyclists Take On The Cape Epic for Charity

Four Capetonians will be braving what has become one of the biggest cycling events in South Africa. The Cape Epic, the Magical and Untamed African mountain bike race, has put the country on the international cycling map with a bang and is, in fact, one of the biggest mountain bike races in the World. The cyclists are hoping to raise the public's awareness about, and funds for, the work being done by the Amy Biehl Foundation Trust with township children.

Mike Powell(General Manager of Reeds Tygervalley) and Donald Christy(Operations Director Of Reeds Motor Group) are riding the Cape Epic Mountain Bike Race from 21 to 28 March together with partners, Alex Kruger(well know IT Specialist) and anaesthetist, Ian Seggie, respectively. For any cyclist, the Epic is a serious adventure and challenge. For the average cyclist it is an almost insurmountable challenge. It includes 16000m of climbing and traversing 900-kilometers of dirt roads and other difficult terrain.

For the men, going into the race for the first time will be an experience in itself and will truly be a voyage into the unknown. All monies raised will go directly to the Amy Biehl Foundation Trust as the riders are paying their own costs – between R30 000 and R50 000 per rider. They hope to raise R100 000 towards this very worthy cause.

Donations can be deposited into the Amy Biehl Foundation Trust account at First National Bank , Adderley Street branch. Account Number : 6208 5677 890.

The Foundation is named after Amy Biehl, an American Fullbright Scholar who was the victim of political mob violence in Gugulethu outside of Cape Town in 1993. More than 1 000 children benefit from its development programmes.

Emily Bruce 30th Birthday Concert

In 2009 Emily Bruce graced the stage of our top live Jazz event The Cape Town International Jazz Festival. Performing to a full house of roughly 2000 people Emily's performance mesmerised the audience bringing some to tears with the depth of her emotions felt through the interpretation of classic Jazz standards.

This year Blue Nightingale Productions together with Nukphonik Productions presents Emily Bruce live at SABC Beach Road Studios on Thursday March 25th as part of her 30th Birthday Concert.

From the suburbs of Cape Town our Jazz nightingale Emily Bruce has sung her way from the school choir to the South African College of Music, UCT and through twelve years of living in the gig circle of Cape Town's flourishing Jazz family Emily is reaching new heights with her vocal performance and interpretation. With her debut CD 'This Love We Share' selling 1000 copies since it's release in 2007 it is time for a new album with a different feel.

Emily Bruce '30th Birthday Concert' Thursday March 25th will be recorded and filmed for release later this year as her second Classic Jazz album and first live DVD. Together with a steller trio Dave Ledbetter (guitar and piano), Charles Lazar (double bass) and Heinrich Goosen (drums) and surprise guests Miss Bruce is sure to create a night and recording to remember. The concert begins at 8pm and drinks are available before and after the performance.

There will be an exhibition of Emily's original visual art in the foyer and all work is available for purchase. Please come early to view the exhibition and bear in mind that seating is unreserved. Tickets are R80 each and for ticket sales please call 073 041 79 50.

"Jazz and freedom go hand in hand. That explains it. There isn't any more to add to it. If I do add to it, it gets complicated. That's something for you to think about. You think about it and dig it. You dig it..." Thelonious Monk
