A surprise find on our travels in Virginia, the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton had a wealth of information about early settlement in the USA.
This amazing wrap-around sculpture by Laura Ellen Bacon can be seen at the Holburne Museum in Bath until October 4th 2015.
Her artist’s statement on her website says:
“I relish the opportunity to let a building ‘feed’ the form, as if some part of the building is exhaling into the work.”

Behind the 2012 Finn class dinghy is Sydney 2000’s Laser 🙂
Having spent the summer of 2012 on a complete high or on the verge of tears over the Olympics/Paralympics, I admit I had the same mixture of emotions when I spotted Sir Ben Ainslie’s Finn and Laser dinghies last December. Having sailed a Laser dinghy a few times, I know how feisty they can be! I have complete admiration for Falmouth’s favourite son, quadruple gold medal winner (not forgetting 1 silver) and the first official torch bearer of the 2012 Olympic torch relay 🙂
