Visual Art 19/3/10

Ben allen solo, Creative Exchange Studios, Newtownards Road, Belfast, Until March 27

This is Allen’s first solo show for four years although his varied, quirky and very original pieces pop up regularly in numerous places.

Perhaps best known for his views of Belfast landmarks (particularly Samson and Goliath) he is really a multi-media artist who can, and does, turn his hand to many different means of expression from T-shirts to woodcuts, digital prints and assembled sculpture. Since he was a child he wanted to be an artist. He says: “My art is a total conglomeration of things”. So it should be fun.

For opening times contact the gallery on 028 9045 2299.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Be assertive about your needs. It's time to stop deferring to the pushier people in your crowd. You have an opportunity to land a good job, embark on a romance or showcase your talent. Don't hesitate to elbow your way past a rival. The person you want to impress will admire your strong stance. Turn a deaf ear to some disturbing gossip. The troublemaker who is spreading this story is just a jealous rival. Beware of tarnishing an innocent person's reputation.More
