The Crab and Lobster Festival is holding its annual art trail…this year the theme is lighthouses. One of our lovely volunteers, Barbara Swarbrick, has designed and painted this beautiful one for the cafe.
Barbara studied art & design in the 1960s, went to Australia in the early 1970s and made her living from ceramic art and design for over 30 years. Her starting point for this work is the glamour, style and opulence of the Liners sailing the world in the years 1920 – 1950. There are also references to the North Lodge Park Tea Rooms where she works as a volunteer.
Our lovely lighthouse sits alongside the porthole and beach hut our previous entries.
