Rain Stopped Play

The headline that has been the death knell of so many events this ‘summer’ was the story of the Yorkshire Artists Exhibition at the Great Yorkshire Show.

The first day of the show ended with the depressing news that it would also be the last day. This was my first year and I was really impressed with the quality of the work on show but what really struck me was what a really nice group of people the artists were. They welcomed me without reservation and presided over by the lovely Judy Packham; made me wish I had regular contact with all of them.

The potter Eric Moss made a terrific video of the venue and the artwork which can be seen on youtube Great Yorkshire Artists@ the Great Yorkshire Show. If you check it out you will see why I was so happy to be part of it.

Because of the anti-climatic end to the event I am still feeling a bit down but I am shortly visiting the Panda’s at Edinburgh Zoo so that should restore my good humour.
