4pm – 6.30 pm
An exhibition of Artistically Embellished Ukuleles
A Private Collection of Casimi & Mark Mainguard Guitars
An exhibition of Designer Guitar & Ukulele Stands
Live Music by Graeme Dickinson
This is a free event, all welcome to attend.
Artistically Embellished Ukulele Exhibition
25 Artists from JahRoc’s stable have embraced the challenge to each paint a Ukulele for the Strings Attached Festival and our “Get Uked” exhibition. Their idea is – “If we can’t play a ukulele then we’ll decorate one, and let those who can play it, enjoy it even more for its artistic style!”
These fun little instruments truly are functional pieces of art… play it, then display it for all to admire. The only dilemma is choosing your favourite one…or two!
“Get Uked” exhibition is showing from 11th October – 3rd November
Private Guitar Collection
JahRoc Galleries are showcasing some really special high end guitars from a very generous private collector including a custom made Casimi and a Mark Mainguard acoustic guitar. It is a unique opportunity to see these fine boutique guitars in the flesh, a wish come to life for many admirers of these musical works of art.
Private Guitar Collection is on show from Friday 11th October – Sunday 13th October.
Jahroc Designer Guitar & Ukulele Stands
JahRoc’s Gary Bennett and David Paris are renown for making artistic furniture of heirloom quality, and have designed a groovy collection of wooden guitar and ukulele stands to entice the Strings Attached crowd, alongside many more of their fine furniture pieces.
