So glad they let me take a few photographs at the Ron Mueck exhibition … and the guy supervising the show was really informative and passionate about the work. Thank you.
This lovely Spanish lady was spotted today at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. From tiny figures to extra large – we’re about to visit the Ron Mueck sculpture exhibition. We’re just sitting in the cafe now, looking down to where the exhibition is – feeling rather excited about seeing these exquisite figures in the flesh … More to follow ( if they let me take photos!)
I’ve written a short piece on my ‘making blog’ about the doll maker Alexander Girard but it’s also about accepting how we develop our artistic styles, whether we understand our influences and perhaps it is just better to be honest and realise that you are a creative sponge – and not being arrogant enough to think that you are an original artistic genius!
Monday mornings can make you feel like this!
I love this tea pot by Susan Hanf, the maker behind the Etsy shop “Gone to Pot (Texas)”
I’m involved in this exhibition – glad to see it got coverage in Selvedge magazine – it runs until 8th August – Macclesfield Heritage Centre. Still a few days left to visit. Here is as photo of the two of the button display boards - mine is the red one, top centre, with an eye patch.
A link to The Button Project mention by Selvedge.
Here are a few more photos from the Heritage Centre venue plus a mural in Macclesfield town (near the bus station) commissioned for the Barnaby festival by KREK
Today I went along to the Boomerang Vintage and Retro shop in the newly spruced up Lightworks arcade – in Hednesford Staffordshire.
The arcade will look fabulous when all the units are full, it looks good already and has a nice mix of stylish shops and hairdressers and other businesses.
Boomerang is a fab little shop, so beautifully presented with a coordinated fifties flavour. Such gorgeous furniture and interior finds plus small gift items too. It’s well worth a visit. I’ll definitely be going back and I promised to buy something next time.
Well done Lyndsey and Steve – it looks fab .
Good luck to you both and I look forward to coming along to some of your future events and using your website shop too when that opens.
I just wish I’d taken a photo! And that turquoise typewriter is ace!
