Saturday 22 July 2017 – Adventure with Poetry and Art
This is the first instalment of the special meetings devoted to arts in its many forms and shapes.
Inspiration for the evening was Anna Winczura Modzelewski, very talented writer and poet. Anna lives in Melbourne but occasionally visits Perth to be with her daughter Amelia who studies Medicine at UWA. And on her last visit we gently persuaded her to meet with the lovers of arts and poetry in particular. Thus started “Poezja przy świecach i kawie”.
Anna happily agreed and the evening became a real poetry happening with reciting, discussions and other participants sharing their poems with fully packed Function Room.
While we enjoyed the poetry, Halina Rosa had on display some samples of her art collection. She is painting and designing textiles. Painting is her great passion, joy of life, the voice of her soul and the realization of the divine plans. Her favourite topics are roses, landscapes of Tatry Mountains and crocus flowers.
To top it off we managed to bring a special guest, one of the most talented Polish Australian opera singers Magda Lisek who highlighted the evening with some beautiful pieces of her choice.
Her voice filled in the room and made it so small for Magda’s huge talent. We were overwhelmed.
The producer and the Master of Ceremony was our Beata Larcombe. Fantastic job Beata!
Remember the names: Anna Winczura Modzelewski, Halina Rosa, Magda Lisek!
