I hope I am not breaking copywrite - I think Calman was so clever witty compassionate perceptive - well, I just love these and want to share them - they come from the book mentioned above - which is out of print? WHY?
I would have bought so many copies if I could, and my copy is held together with an elastic band ...... I would love to put them on Twitter, but am not sure how.... or pinterest, now I think I can do that!
The new Arts Centre Gallery in Shaftesbury is a really lovely space and I was very pleased to be asked to exhibit there. As an artist it is not a taken that a gallery with a good 'pedigree' also has a fabulous space to support the work. Kate Pickard ( and others ) have worked really hard, I mean really hard, as volunteers, to provide Shaftesbury with a first rate space. I hope they are able to find work of a first rate order to show, and thus earn a reputation of real quality. Democracy and Elitism .... where is the balance, and I vote for both!
