Title: Beyond Limits, Chatsworth, 16 September - 30 October 2011

This excellent sculpture exhibition is back - we always try and go at least once as the sculptures are wonderful and the setting is superb. You can even buy them if you've a spare few £10/100k!  ::)

Thanks for the steer. Chatsworth is a little too much of a stretch for a day out, but it looks well worth a visit.
One thing that photography has lead me to is an appreciation of other art forms, sculpture particularly so.
On a visit to Tate Britain a couple of weeks ago, a bust of Josef Stalin caught my eye. Not much more than life size the sculptor, Peter Peri, made Stalin's brooding evil reputation so strong that you felt he was watching you all the time, which of course he and his KGB cronies were doing during his reign.

Nice one!  :tup:

It'll be a week or so before we're going to be able to get there - but more time for the trees to develop their autumn colours!  ;)
