Musselburgh Burgh Primary School   

Yesterday we held the final of Burgh’s Got Talent. Fourteen acts tried their hardest to be the overall winner. The acts included singing, modern and India dancing, E Flat Horn, guitar, comedy and a drama scene. The pupils and parents of the finalist found it very hard to choose a winner as all the acts were very good. After careful counting on the votes the result were announced. In third place were the P7 Whats and Whys, who are a group of talented musicians and singers, in second place were P6 Elite a dance group and in first place James and Michael performed a comedy act with a violin. Please keep watching here to see their performance.

Musselburgh Camera Club   

The Camera Club has been approached to see if members may want to get involved in this. Tesco has donated funding for a public art project in Musselburgh. The Council has commissioned  ice cream architecture – a Glasgow based community art group to consult Musselburgh ( Fisherrow and Inveresk ) residents about what form they’d like the art to take and where it should go. There has been one meeting so far, a school consultation project and a walk around Fisherrow and the west of Musselburgh to talk about and look at possible sites for art.

The next walk is on Tuesday 23rd June meeting at Fisherrow Centre at 6pm. The walk lasts about 11/2 hrs. Full information about the project can be seen on the Facebook page or the Blog titled The Musselburgh Public Art Dabble. How about projected photographs on public buildings ? Once ideas have been further developed, a short list of artists, selected by the East Lothian Council,  will be asked to suggest possible artworks for installation. The public will be able to decide which they like best. Over to you …….

I have just received the Catalogue for the 2015 Scottish Salon.

This is an annual international exhibition, held this year in Aberdeen, and a competition involving prints and digital images in mono and colour. There are some stunning images and some are distinctly weird !  For ideas and inspiration click on link below to see the full catalogue in PDF.
