The Shire Seen

Today I went to Lincoln, specifically to see the
 'The Shire Seen', a joint exhibition by Greg Kapka and Fraser Scarfe, held in The Chapter House at Lincoln Cathedral. 
I loved Lincoln, the magnificent architecture, the cobbled streets, the nooks and crannies, though not the traffic and the oh, so slow traffic lights!

Then, the exhibition, which, as you can see, is in the glorious Chapter House! What a venue!
But I have to say the paintings made their presence felt even amidst such grandeur. How could two such different artists come together and make it work? But Frasers' flamboyant energy was complimented perfectly by Gregs' meticulous calm.
I have only recently come across Fraser, and found him to be like a breath of fresh air, blowing away some cobwebs and getting me thinking along new lines.
I followed Gregs' blog for a couple of years, blown away by his work, admiring his determination, and then he disappeared! Now you can imagine how thrilling to see these two exhibiting together! Fantastic!
We had a lovely chat...Fraser is off to London to study but Greg has no immediate plans. I just hope he doesn't disappear again!
The exhibition runs for two more days...go get there, people!

Your photography is as wonderful as your art. No. No. Your art is wonderful, your photography show us why. You've got a great eye. Glad you had a great time. It looks like a charming town and Chapter House looks spectacular.
