In current and upcoming events in St. John’s:

The Tuckamore Festival – Chamber Music in Newfoundland – is currently celebrating its 12th season, and continues until August 19.  There are two performances by young artists tonight at Petro Canada Hall, one at 7 p.m., featuring original composers, and the other at 8 p.m., with players performing classical pieces in chamber music and solo repertoire.  Included in the line-up of upcoming performances next week is Montreal-based Janina Fialkowska, who will be performing pieces by Schubert and Chopin on piano on Wed., Aug. 15, at 8 p.m., at DF Cook Recital Hall. 

The Craft Council Gallery, at 59 Duckworth St., is now celebrating its 40th year of operation, and today is the last day you can glimpse a display of work from across the province.  Beginning on August 25, the Craft Council Gallery, and its Annex Gallery, will be featuring the quilt work of Heidi Wagner, the hooked rugs of Sarah Feltham, and mixed-media sculptures by Nicole Russell-Pitcher.
