Earplugs @ Turner Contemporary Margate; a pen and watercolour sketch some photos and a possible ramble.

Here is the pen and watercolour sketch drawn in the Turner Contemporary Margate café


As you see they produce an artist’s lunch that you can eat while sketching



Having just viewed the main exhibition “Self” which is self portraits all I really wanted to do was sketch people and as two sides of the café there are glass the light is very good.


The newest of the exhibitions: “Year of Mexico in the UK” by Carlos Amorales is basically cymbals, or perhaps symbols – I don’t know enough about contemporary art to tell – on coat hangers. Children are randomly issued with drumsticks (cymbal mallets) and adults are randomly issued with earplugs, as the symbols become cymbals to the children. I kept my earplugs in which made me feel a bit like a fish in a fish tank. Something I took into the glass walled café.

You are not allowed to take photographs in the main exhibition for copyright reasons, but here photos I did take in Turner Contemporary Margate, click on them to expand.  






















And finally here are the books I bought for my bookshop in Ramsgate while in Margate, not many I know, but there is no such thing as a free lunch and the books will more than pay for mine.
