Does anyone have an artistic use for a piano? Steve at Underhill Farm has been trying to get rid of an old piano for ages – no luck even on Freecycle.

As Steve says, “it’s old and can’t carry a tune any more, but it’s still beautiful.”

‘Music of the natural world?’ ‘Discordant sounds of nature?’ It’s available for anyone who can think of a use for it – get in touch via the blog or drop by the Farm and cart it away if you’re interested…

The Art of the Mural

Clearwater mural by fine artist Ana Livingston – Tampa Bay (Clearwater) Florida. via

Florida muralist Ana Livingston has been following our Inside Out blog for a while now, and I thought it was high time we sent you over to her site to have a look at the fantastic murals she’s been painting in Clearwater, Florida.

Her Clearwater mural is a big, bold, bright piece – so very Florida! There’s a great gallery of the progress of the work here.

Oswestry’s own Cambrian railway mural, put up on the side wall of the old Woolworth’s has proven extremely popular. Now that the town’s getting another one in the form of Marja’s mural on The George, there’s more mural work in Oswestry than I ever thought there would be.

Is Oswestry secretly acquiring a unique art identity as a Town of Murals? Maybe we could do a muralist-exchange programme: someone could go to Clearwater, Florida and paint a mural of Oswestry in the rain, and Ana could come to Oswestry and slap a bit of that Florida sunshine on the Market Hall!

Display stands on offer

Offered: two translucent acrylic necklace stands. Free to good homes!

Would any of the Inside Out crafters/jewellery makers be interested in these? I have two frosted acrylic necklace stands in my studio which I’m sure someone could use.

Drop me an comment via this post or stop by the studio if you want them. There are two; first come, first served!
