Yesterday was just such a great day. It was our first ever Art on the May day and it was brilliant. The island has inspired people for years to create and this day was a bit of an outdoor exhibition of that sort of creativity and 100 people made it across to the island in what was quite frankly wild conditions to enjoy and be inspired. The face painters were not just face painters but Isle of May seabird face painters with each face being a work of art in itself. After opting for a puffin I was told that apparently I had just the right nose to be a puffin, hmmmm.
The photographer in residence Celine Marchbank has been documenting island life and has managed to take wonderful photographers that don't feature birds. She showed off her work in short slide shows in the visitor centre.
It was just fantastic having such a concentration of talented people on the island creating and performing at the same time and it has definitely left me thinking that we need more art on the May in the future.
