South West Academy at Gloss

It’s autumn again and that means a visit to Exeter’s Gloss gallery for the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts exhibition. As last year these shots are taken with my phone camera – one day I’ll go prepared, I wonder if I would get away with taking pictures!It’s difficult to avoid reflection and also getting a clear background seems impossible, but I hope you enjoy this little peep at the best of the regions art.

Two Circles, Tokushige by Philip Booth

Lazy Poets Thursday Poem

Twin Seat

Reminiscent of medieval windows

In repose against an ancient wall

Twinned seats in iron wrought

Languishing until the return of spring

To warm and settle the metal

Into a welcoming retreat

Until then you chill the cheeks

Of any brave or foolish souls

Who linger in the sleeping garden

Unblessed by loves gentle glow
