swimming lunatics!

Mic and I are attempting to swim a mile in Lake Windemere (along with a few other people). It is for an excellent cause, and may just get us a bit fitter in the process. We’ve already tried our suits out in Lake Ullswater; the Hebridean Sea; Skye Fairy Pools and a river in Glencoe!

Meet the artist: Roo Waterhouse

Saturday, 3 May, 2014 – 12:00 to 14:00
Come and meet Roo Waterhouse; we’re currently showing her exhibition The Comfort of Things at The Town Hall.
Roo’s paintings are inspired by household objects which she depicts in situ, often larger than life. ย She loves to paint using oils – the traditional medium of reverential portraiture. ย Her paintings observe and appreciate our relationships with the often unnoticed familiar objects in our everyday surroundings; exploring how they can hold onto the stories of our lives, becoming links to past times.

In the meantime, get on down to the Town Hall in Hebden Bridge and take a look.
