CHEEEEEEEEESE

“Look at the phone and say cheese,”
“Cheeeeeeeeeeeese.”

******

“In the olden days, Eli, people had these things called cameras.”

Olive Edis at Sheringham Museum.

******

They say: “The Museum’s 2018 Summer Exhibition – an in-depth view of the life of Olive Edis FRPS, Sheringham’s pioneering photographer. This exhibition highlights the person behind the camera: entrepreneur, adventurer, inventor, public speaker, music lover, at ease with people of every level in society and a caring family member. There are photographs, of course, but this exhibition is about much more.”

No less the ability to laugh at your child dressed up like from the olden times.

We say: “A lovely exhibition with wonderfully helpful staff which help it come to life.”

Say cheese Eli.

Cheers,

TIME OUT NORTH NORFOLK

SOMEONE needs to provide a comprehensive weekly directory of North Norfolk arts.

And it may as well be me.

A white staffy from Essex.

Well, maybe not weekly.

Im busy.

*****

First up we travelled (walked) to Sheringham Museum to see ‘Drift’ by Jeanette Bolton-Martin.

It wasn’t photos on paper!

It was photos on silk!

They say: “Original cyanotypes created by Jeanette Bolton Martin, have been digitally reproduced on silk organza for the installation. The audience interacting, by allowing their walking around the space to create movement in the material. Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the silk edges of the artworks will begin to fray, simulating coastal erosion. At the end of the exhibition, the debris of frayed threads will be drifted out to sea and retrieved again.”

We say: It was really lovely looking out the tower of the museum, over Sheringham, through the beautiful, delicate works themselves representing the views.

*****

Barely a day later we trotted (got the train) to Cromer. If you want to see an exhibition of wonderful art works by North Norfolk artists and you’ve gone to Cromer you’ve gone to the right place.

The RNLI Henry Blogg Museum.

One of the best bits was the models of typical seaside buildings made out of driftwood found on the beach.

Its kind of the same thing as the Sheringham thing.

I think they call it a synchronicity of content and form.

See – I can do arts – subscribe now!

BRUISES

You’ve had a cup of tea, entertained the baby, watched Andrew Marr…What’s a boy to do with a head full of dreams…
That’s right!
A raft race!!
London Schmondon.

*****

Trouble was. It was too good.
“I was hoping for a few bruises,” bemoaned the tannoy man.
No boats disintegrated and only one rather half hearted overboard.
Oh well… a local publican in a Hawaiian skirt beats another 2 hours of wingeing to the telly about Brexit.

Plus…

Coming up in the Sheringham Carnival…

“Buxom beasties on the steam train.”

Once your tired of L…

Shut up Samuel Johnson.

We fell in love with our new home all over again.

There were all these jumpers that the fishermen wore called ganseys which were also popular in Holland.

We’re an 8th Dutch.

The hands…

Or you could just go for a nice walk.

PUKING

Your baby is puking, your dog is pulling, the clouds are emptying…

What do you want your husband to say at that point… to ease the pain…

“Can we got to the shell gallery?”

*****

I mean this wasn’t quite the avant grade art galleries of Bethnal Green, yet neither was it the £6 fan museum of Greenwich.

Its amazing what people can do with shells.

Imagine what they could put those skills to…

Imagine.

PPS You just have to travel to the loveliest town in the world.
