That's PRD takes a look at the best of the week:

March 14-26: Close Your Eyes, Close to the Heart 


Inheriting her African legacy, French artist Pulchérie Lebry-Dassse has been creating artwork which highlights human faces, children and flowers. In the words of the artist, “I love the universal theme of childhood with its simplicity, its innocence and its joys. The eyes through which our feelings speak.” Self-teaching herself to oil painting, her works are inspired by her surroundings in Guangzhou, a city she has loved for two years. 

Mar 14-26, 9am-7pm, Mon-Thu; 9am-6pm, Fri-Sun; Free entry. Alliance Français de Canton. See event listing.

March 26: Chili Cook-off 2016


The 2016 McCawley’s chili cook-off will undoubtedly be one of the year’s most memorable culinary events. There is no entry fee to participate and sampling the goods is a measly RMB100 and includes drink vouchers, nacho chips and salsa, cornbread, a voting slip, RMB50 Nogogo voucher and a lucky draw. Oh, and you get to eat a pile of chili!

The Trio Denner, whose members include Alessandro Bardella, Giancarlo Buratti and Giorgio Rondi – all on the clarinet – cooperates with the above composers to create the diverse melodies of Quintetto Denner. Come to Guangzhou Opera House this month and relax in the jazzy breeze of arrangements from the Apennine Peninsula.

At Xinghai Concert Hall, Lu will perform pieces from Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. Come out and enjoy the inspired peace of mind ignited by Lu Siqing on the violin.
