Another trip over to Macclesfield this time by car which is so much easier than by train which takes ages. Hazel used the sat-nav to guide her but not really necessary as its a pretty straight road and signposted all the way - infact the sat-nav took us through Knutsford which is about 4 miles out of our way! Why? On the way back we came the via Chelford and it was much quicker and not having the low sun in our eyes helped.
The exhibition is very good though my work was squashed into a corner with a shadow over it which I was a bit miffed about. O well, you have to try these places.
We enjoyed our walk around the charity shops of which there are many - though didnt get any bargains. Bought a "dutch" loaf and custard "danish" from a nice deli we found.
===========================================================================================================================================================================This morning it was the indoor boot sale at Winsford and a rainy ride through to the Asda car park opposite. I found two old 60's CD's - re-issues ofcourse - The Doors "Soft Parade" and "Best of the Merseybeats". Hazel got a few stocking fillers including an officers monocle which makes her look like Patrick Moore!
Archie has a video piece in this exhibition in Manchester tonight and next week. It's the Gherkin Training video he made for college. Must try and get over to see it in situ and all the other weird stuff!
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
