David Bent, Russell-Cotes and a bender round Bournemouth

Well I say bender. It was more a sedate meander with Carole Bent (the fabulous wife 😉 ) around the wonderful Russell-Cotes museum, David’s exhibition there and beautiful Bournemouth on the best, brilliantly sunny and perfect day.

David is currently exhibiting at the Russell-Cotes museum so Carole kindly took me down there to visit as she had a meeting there. While she was busy doing important meeting stuff I was lucky enough to have a gander around this utter gem of a place. I’d never heard of it let alone been to it – and if you haven’t then you must! Preferably while David’s exhibition is still running because his art is wonderful and worth seeing always – but just generally too.

So now you get the pleasure of some of my characteristically out-of-focus photos – it’s my trademark okay?

And yes – I KNOW this blog is about Swindon not Bournemouth but David has lived here for eons now so he’s as much a Swindonian as I am. And he and Carole are involved in many Swindon things and this is his art and anyway – as I’ve said many times – there’s no point having a bloody blog if you can’t give a shout-out to friends. So here we are. 😉

Having mentioned the place – it’d be rude not to eh? And it IS a fabulous place. Is it just me or does that building remind you of something from the Adams Family?
