Today, Friday, was a perfect autumn day and what better way to spend it than to wander around the nearby historic town of Maldon appreciating the art displayed as part of the 2017 Maldon Art Walk. From the 12th to the 26th of March, the work of local artists is on display in shop windows and in public spaces. The work of 100 artists is displayed in 50 venues. Tiny, little pots rub shoulders with the sausages at the butchers, a large charcoal drawing struts its stuff at the hardware shop, a painting of a carousal is a joyous addition to the premises of the local ice cream maker and a small, metal boat rolls on barbwire waves in the garden shop.
The following photographs are of a small selection of what is on show. I didn’t have to worry about reflections from shop windows with these works.
This dress is made of chicken wire, yet it looks soft and filmy – I love it.
I also love these beautiful, hand dyed felt jackets
This courtyard with the old pomegranate tree brought back memories of a lazy lunch with relatives under its shade years ago.
The court yard provides the setting for this amazing installation….
………….. as well as these sculptures.
On the far wall of the dining room of the historic Kangaroo Hotel is this painting of the Trentham Falls.
My friends and I enjoyed a hearty lunch in the dining room.
