A fond farewell to Richard Grayson and thanks for a really thought provoking show. It's impossible to recall the breadth of the discussions we've had both today and over the past weeks. To name but a few: truth, authenticity, belief, disbelief, uncertainty, country and western music, horoscopes, performance, portraiture, boring dinner party conversations, singing, ... and the many guises of the artist... as social commentator, thinker, enquirer, presenter of ideas, documentor, provocateur, someone who picks and probes at sticky problems without the imposition of offering answers...

To the MA group from the Slade who I MISSED meeting today - so sorry to have missed you - it would have been great to have had you at a Thinking Aloud session. Perhaps some other time...


Last chance! Hope you can join me for the last Saturday afternoon walk & talk around the Richard Grayson exhibition today. I'll be in the building all afternoon if you want to chat about the show. You can find me in the gallery between 2 and 3pm, and then upstairs in the 2nd floor foyer from about 3.15 if you want to join me for tea & chat in "Thinking Aloud". Hope to see you there.
