I have been thinking for a while that it might be time to have a Retrospective Exhibition and I have decided in view of the recent fantastic news that now is perhaps the right time to go for it. I doubt that I will achieve any greater satisfaction than having a previous student of mine winning both the inaugural Hepworth Sculpture Prize and the Turner Prize 2016.

I am very old now and it is probably time to quantify what I have done and what I might go on to do if I ignore my sell by date. So I have arranged with Newbiggin Maritime Centre (where I work continuously to promote Art) to have an exhibition in September 2017.

I am calling it "Past My Sell By Date?"

I will welcome everybody who takes the trouble to visit.
