The Spirit of Optimism Two

Oh my goodness what a weekend, it started with a very stressful trip to the vet and ended with knowing exactly where we wanted to be. 

Work No. 203 Everything Is Going To Be Alright (1999)
On Saturday we visited Preston to see Artist Rooms - Martin Creed, if you can get to this exhibition please do. It's a joyful thing, from the soothing words high above the street outside the gallery to this short film (I have been singing the song all weekend!)





 We also watched some of the events, such as lion dancing, that were put on to celebrate Chinese New Year, I didn't take part in the chopstick challenge though!

Sunday saw us take the trip to Nottingham Lakeside Arts to see Victor Pasmore - Towards A New Reality. It's a long and not very interesting drive but it was well worth it, the exhibition takes us from his early paintings right through to the Apollo Pavilion in Peterlee, we visited it back in 2015, see here. On the way home we did a quick detour to Derby Quad to experience What A Loving And Beautiful World which was a gorgeous space with never a never repeating combination of images that change with touch or shadow, so the more people, the better the show. 



As ever, the best was saved for last, as we arrived home just at the right time




Perfect end to the day.

    We were at the vet yesterday with suspected GI, but I think we caught it really early, as Belle's eating again now x

    1. Glad Belle is eating again now.

      All is well here, she ate something she shouldn't have done and had to have it pulled out of her mouth!
