Leicester museum and art gallery were planning an exhibition of Picasso's pottery in 2005, that was going to be loaned to them by Richard Attenborough, actor/director,who lived in Leicester when he was young. His brothers were born here.
Then his daughter and grandaughter were killed in the Asian tsunami and everything was put on hold - he has now, incredibly generously, donated the collection in their name.
I let the intial rush die down and hope to get in to see it this week. Here is a link to an article about the show http://www.24hourmuseum.org.uk/leicester/news/ART47953.html?ixsid=jIvZvh3dgyo with images
Tomorrow I'm planning to spend the day painting :) and in the evening I am going to talk to a local art group about my work and mixed media etc
