While the potfest was better than I expected, the annual competition to a theme (this year 'From the Sea'), did not seem to be as inspired as usual - good stuff, but not lots of good stuff. There were however delightfully corny puns in the titles of some pieces, none of which I can remember (probably all for the best). Here was my favourite piece from the competition (can't remember the artist, sorry):
Today I went to see the Bolton wing of the Python Open at the Gallery at St Georges House. Well, I'd been already, but I wanted photos to show. I should say straight away that those photos that are by me are not at all straight, so if any of the artists look and feel that things don't seem quite right, sorry, that'll be down to necessary cropping. I don't seem to take many pics that couldn't have gained from judicious use of a spirit level. Maybe I was built on the slant?
