My next stop was the Barbican and The Curve. ‘Walead Beshty’. I do like exhibitions that ignite so many questions. Cyanotype and blueprints , thank goodness for the internet and the many ‘How to sites’,    It now all makes sense and so interesting.

Blog 13: Guildhall art gallery what a find! Still the novice blogger…

Guildhall art gallery is hidden away in Moorgate but what a wonderful experience. Beauty, Faith, Home, Imagination, Love and Leisure all portrayed. ‘The Garden of Eden’ by G Riviere is definitely my great find.

The creation of my cultural landscape has made me think more about the prompts and how exciting it is finding such hidden treasures.

My powerful painting and a must to see and a revisit. So Thoughtful.

What an entrance, a cathedral of culture and I cant believe I have not been before.I don’t know why things stick but ….Finding the film‘Dreams that Money Can Buy’ by Hans Richter is a story of mannequins . I really don’t know what it is, but this film made me think.The Fitzwilliam Museumhttp://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk
