Lya Garcia: Wearing & Bearing Launch: Wednesday 8 January 6.30 - 8.30pm Thursday 9 January - Sunday 23 February

Wearing and Bearing looks at the relationship between fashion and identity and the way that the things we wear - or don't wear - reflect our nature. Lya Garcia considers the artificial nature of social conventions which define and restrain our appearance and bodily expression. Can we change by simply putting on someone else's clothes? Paris-based curator Bettina Bauerfeind has been working with Lya to catalogue her work from the early 1980s to the present. On show will be documentary photographs from Lya's early career, video works and crocheted sculptures. Thursday 9 January: Crochet workshop with Lya Garcia. See page 33 for details.

Palaces & Cabins

Skin Deep

Friday 11 April Sunday 18 May

Launch: Tuesday 25 February 6.30 - 8.30pm Thursday 27 February Sunday 6 April

Palaces & Cabins explores the intersection of public and private space in Salisbury, revealing aspects of the City that are hidden in plain sight.

Skin Deep brings together four contemporary artists whose painted surfaces play tricks with appearance and reality. Harriet White's hyper-real close-up portraits shimmer with detail. Heather Wallace's sumptuous social scenes tell unexpected stories.

The exhibition acts as an artists' guide to the City, encouraging viewers to revisit the spaces they inhabit from a different perspective.

Clare Chapman's abstract images are both seductive and a little grotesque. Mike Newton exerts expert control over paint, canvas and subject in his brooding compositions. Image: Detail from Wanderflower by Harriet White

Last year we joined Salisbury Playhouse in presenting Theatre Fest West: a celebration of all the talented artists in our region. We had so much fun we're doing it again this year and bringing other artforms to the party! We spoke to Mark Powell, Associate Director at Salisbury Playhouse to find out more... How did Theatre Fest West begin and how has it evolved? Theatre Fest West began in 2012 when Gareth Machin, Salisbury Playhouse’s Artistic Director, came up with the idea of showcasing the diverse range of theatre that is created here in the South West. The first year included performances from Exeterbased Theatre Alibi, Dorset-based Stuff and Nonsense and Bristol-based Pickled Image. Since then, the Festival has grown and 2012’s even included a production from Kilter Theatre that took place in a converted post office van outside the theatre! What events have you got lined up at Salisbury Playhouse? We’re still putting the final touches to the programme for 2014 (to be announced early in the year), but expect a great mix of funny, engaging and surprising productions that celebrate live performance and entertain all ages. It’s great that we’re collaborating with Salisbury Arts Centre and Trowbridge Arts to make Theatre Fest West 2014 the biggest to date.
