  Speedy  

Studio Nine presents Speedy
a Harold Lloyd classic with live piano from Albert Lamb

Saturday 18 July doors 7.30pm
Goods Shed, Stroud GL5 3AP

Speedy is a 1928 silent film that was one of the films to be nominated for the short-lived Academy Award for Best Director of a Comedy. The film stars famous comedian Harold Lloyd in the eponymous leading role, and it was his last silent film to be released in theatres. The plot revolves around Harold 'Speedy' Swift's attempts to save the last horse-drawn streetcar in New York. The film contrasts the speed of life of the contemporary city with the pace of yesteryear, represented by this non-motorized mode of transport. Yankees star Babe Ruth plays one of 'Speedy's' hapless passengers.

Albert Lamb will be creating an appropriate musical accompaniment to bring out all the humour and emotion in every scene. He promises to really make these movie swing.

Tickets £6 advance, £7 on the door

Emily Joy
31 July – 6 August
Emily Joy is a sculptor and installation artist. Her practice examines why and how experience is mediated by the imperfect copies of memory, language and image and is particularly concerned with trace (grammatical, photographic or the cast) in relation to memory.

Maggie Shaw and Noela Bewry
7 – 13 August
Maggie Shaw and Noela Bewry are abstract painters showing work which, on the one hand, has routes in landscape and the forces of nature and on the other hand evolves through a process of improvisation and change.

Nettle Grellier
14 -20 August
The decorative is both in the heavily patterned nature of my paintings, woven into my work perhaps by the presence of my mother’s textile business, and the celebration of the seasonal changes around the Gloucestershire valleys where I live. I work in oils for the joy of using such a juicy material, but drawing, for it’s honesty and simplicity is just as important.

Jo Casling
21 – 27 August
My work explores the physicality and process of painting through imaginary spaces. Mainly large abstract pieces.

David Evans
28 August -3 September
David's work takes the aesthetics of the macabre along with elements of the tradition of Catholic and Christian art and mixes it with a dash of pop art sensibility.

Solo shows in September: Holly English, Simon Ryder, Zoe Heath and Ann-Margreth Bohl
