A RENOWNED Australian musician will be hitting a Weston venue for a special gig to help launch an exhibition by two town artists.

Derrin Nauendorf will be at Loves Café in Weston – his third date at the venue – performing his unique brand of guitar-based acoustic tunes.

He will be accompanied by cellist Rick Foot, and promises to showcase material from his new EP Distant Empires – his first studio album in four years.

Derrin said: “I really tried to test myself as an artist. I know I have done the absolute best I could.”

The gig will take place on Sunday, and is part of a celebration to launch a dual exhibition by two Weston artists.

Photographer Yannic Collins has been producing pictures since he received his first camera for his 8th birthday.

Having grown up to study art foundation at Weston College, his love of landscapes has seen him draw influences from the likes of Ansel Adams and Cindy Sherman.

Alongside Yannic’s creative and experimental pieces will be the work of James White.

James is a teacher at Priory Community School, and works using graphic pens, ink and graffiti spray paints to create original artwork featuring contemporary portraits and local landscapes.

Doors will open at 3pm on Sunday, and music begins at 4pm. Entry for the launch gig costs £6 on the door, while the exhibition will run for a month.
