Small Town Vandals wont spoil our show!

Several of the sculptures in our TRAIL were vandalised last night, I think it is the first time we have really been affected in this way! My Do Do had been pushed over, thankfully no unrepairable damage done and its all intact. Liz Lockyear’s  Igloo was used as a party room by the local al fresco drinkers; which I found quite amusing until I realised they had also collapsed the structure by pulling it down, which is miserable for her and she had to do lots of repairing today, its back up, but not quite as sturdy as it was before. Several of the other sculptures had minor injuries, but mostly suffered shock. It is our 10th year and there has been so much good news for us with TRAIL being included in the United Nations Its Our World online art exhibition (a huge international event for young people aged between 4 and 19) so we will not let some thoughtless people bring us down!

I wish people would take Michelle Greenwood-Brown’s advice to Love your Planet!

In better news our Art in the Sun exhibition is looking glorious and open all week from 10-5pm. It is a lovely setting with a barn and woodland full of art. Its being held at  Ben Yates parents home and he has a fabulous darkened room with all of his light up sculptures making it a magical experience for young and old.
