They are trying to escape...

Let's help them! I was perusing the donut selection in Sainsbury's this lunchtime and these little fellas were quite obviously trying to escape from inevitable consumption! Let's join together in their cause and save their cheeky faces!

If you are in London before the 7th of September you should check out this new exhibition...
My good friend Rachel Potts along with two other artists have organised an exhibition called 'Pretty Vacant'. It's well worth a visit and it's freeeee. Go to the Transition Gallery in Bethnal Green.

New Art Centre @ Roche Court, Wiltshire

The New Art Centre was founded in 1958. The original gallery was located in Sloane Street, London. In 1994 it was relocated to Roche Court in Wiltshire, a nineteenth-century house in parkland. The existing house and Orangery were built in 1804. Together with the grounds, Roche Court is now used as a sculpture park and educational centre where work is shown inside and out providing a survey of sculpture for the enjoyment of the public. It is located about 30 mins drive from Winchester and is definitely worth the visit any time of year! Amazing!

Dan went there on Sunday and these amazing Granite Boulders by Peter Randall-Page were really beautiful! Go Go Go and check them out!

Also don't forget to ring the front door bell and ask to look around the artists house! Some beautiful artwork and amazing building!

.....and best of all it's FREE to look around the grounds! oh yes!

Beautiful Losers & The Wackness!!!!!

Lizzie and Dan went to see two really great movies while in New York last week......The Wackness is playing at the Angelika on Houston and the documentary Beautiful Losers is on at the ICF on 6th Ave! Well worth checking out!

The Wackness
It's the summer of 1994, and the streets of New York are pulsing with hip-hop. Set against this backdrop, a lonely teenager named Luke Shapiro spends his last summer before university selling marijuana throughout New York City, trading it with his unorthodox psychotherapist for treatment, while having a crush on his stepdaughter.

Beautiful Losers
This documentary follows the lives and careers of a collective group of Do-it-yourself artists and designers who inadvertently affected the art world.
