Falmouth Art Gallery, Unicorn and Tall Ships

28 Aug

1   We were in Falmouth for the four day Tall Ships event and had a delightful day, first in the always pleasing Falmouth Art Gallery. There was a really touching exhibition on ‘The Boy Who Bit Picasso” about the friendship between Picasso and a young boy and his family. If you get the chance, do go and see it.

2   We called in to see an exhibition of work, The Art of Happiness, by our very talented artist friend, Suzanne Crook, and I fell in love with a small painting which we bought as our Anniversary present to each other. On our way through the town we spotted one of her signature pieces, a fantastic bejewelled Unicorn. I would so love to have one of these!

3  And at last we arrived at the Tall Ships – they really are magnificent. Look closely and you will see some sailors on the  main stays. It looks very precarious!
