Friday 17th September my wife and I attended the private viewing of this inspiration exhibition at Tullie House in Carlisle. It has been so long since I attended any formal gathering I felt seriously underdressed in such a company. Nonetheless, it was a great honour for my drawing of Hindscarth to have been selected to go on show and I enjoyed some lovely conversations. I loved Sue Foster’s Castlerigg by moonlight, Livi Adu’s delightfully adored walking stick and enjoyed chatting with the young Syrian lady (whose name I missed) who contributed an original feature installation. Eyecatching was the wild forbidding aspect of Pillar Cove, a perspective that my good friend Jim Fotheringham attested as a place he loved, having climbed the northern wall of the Rock only recently.
