Thank you so much for those of you who were able to come to the Opening Party of Response to “The Waste Land” at East Lodge today. The exhibition continues until the 25th November.

Thanks must go to all the artists who rose to the challenge and have created such a wonderful mix of styles, media and ideas stimulated by the T.S. Eliot poem. Thanks also the LSA Trustees who trusted me with the notion and execution of the idea to do something locally inspired by the Journeys with “The Waste Land” exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum and Coventry Cathedral in Coventry. However, it would not have come together so well without the help of members Soolie Burke, Elliot Minor, Ede Kovacs, Cathy Black and my lovely supportive husband Andy Parker.
