Having spent all afternoon at lunch with friends, then drinks and nibbles followed by speeches at the opening, my sentiments were neatly summarised by Levi in this picture who expressed his feelings rather more openly. Thanks for the shot, mate, creating a island of peace amidst all the crowd!
To prove that I was not completely reduced to people watching, I add an image from the exhibition. Ceramic artist Richard Naylor has featured on these pages before. He had two works accepted into the show. Here a striking collection of “13 Blue Bottles”. And as the red dot shows, it sold right away. Congratulations Richard.
