If our unconscious controls our moods, then how do we truly know what it is that makes us feel happy, ecstatic, humdrum or downright angry? We have resorted to verbalizing why we feel a certain way, but perhaps the unconscious is better served by a more direct form of translation. Alex Mehiri uses his brush to unravel his emotions, to express himself and discover that which lies beneath. His bright colouration, thick impasto and wonderful composition reveal a complex character with a lyrical soul. Come discover the inner world of Alex Mehiri, and meet the artist in person as well. -Christina Anastassopoulos, 2010

Almonte in Concert presents James Anagnoson and Leslie Kinton at Almonte Town Hall on January 22, 2011
Entering a remarkable fourth decade of performances, this word-renowned team explores some of the musical gems in the vast range of the two-piano repertoire. Works by Arensky, Brahms, Dvorák and Rachmaninoff. The concert takes place at Almonte Old Town Hall (14 Bridge Street, Almonte) and begins at 8:00 p.m.
That two pianists can produce a virtually seamless sound, over this many years, gives cause to marvel. The critics certainly have. As The Ottawa Citizen duly noted, "Anagnoson and Kinton's playing is everything that duo-piano playing should be." This legendary duo has enchanted audiences throughout Canada, United States, Europe, and China. In 2008, Anagnoson & Kinton expanded their presence into Russia where they performed in St. Petersburg's Glazunov Hall.Tickets are $27 for adults and $14 for students, and are available by phone at 613-253-3353, online at www.almonteinconcert.ca or at Mill Street Books, 52 Mill Street, Almonte, 613-256-9090.
