Burslem School of Art

We popped over to the mother town for a private view of the Three Counties Open Art Exhibition 2017 hosted by Keele University at the historic Burslem School of Art.   Work from this exhibition can be purchased from Barewall Art Gallery in Burslem and viewed online.  I attended art classes here as a teenager and later on after it's refurbishment I spent many a happy hour here immersed in textiles - I think that's when I got the bug.

 Across the road is the equally famous Wedgwood Institute.

There was much talk of the Stoke-on-Trent for City of Culture bid and plenty of inspiration.

My favourite of the whole exhibition was, Green by Susan Law-Webb, one of her last works, 

An amazing pencil drawing by Malcolm Hague, Doug's Jacket.

Victor Irving, Among The Trees, will be coming home with me!  Victor was taught by the very talented Arthur Berry - I like his art but I like his writing even more, A Three and Seven Pence Halfpenny Man and The Little Goldmine, worth searching out.

I also sneaked John Paton's, Finite Infinity, lucky me.
