On the lookout for Marine Art

The editor’s favourites:  marine oil paintings! (UK Royal Society of Marine Artists)

East Yorkshire’s Marine Artists

“Catch me if you can” Contemporary Artist Adrian C. Rigby (sold for $25,000)

Had the editor the resources, he would cover his walls with original, antique, contemporary, 20th Century, classical and naive marine oil paintings. They are however quite valuable now and over the last few decades at least  highly collectible both Nationally and internationally!

Note: it’s a “Bears Market” for art collectors currently so now’s your chance to snap up some potential longer-term investments!

The editor settles for stamps and prints instead – which for all intents and purposes fulfill his interest as an art ethusiast rather than a collector for investment reasons

First Day Editions Stamp Collection

The Editor also wanted to recover his lost “first editions” stamp collection he started with his mother’s assistance from the age of about 8, as collected over his teenage years from the Hull Stamp Shop, then located on the top of Princess Avenue near the junction with Spring Bank. A sample above which he bought today which he is thinking of mounting in a picture frame.

Many of the stamps are worth little more than they were bought for some 50 years on taking inflation into account, but stamp collections are considered as a very long term investment and the market may turn eventually.. but look out for the rare Victoria “Penny Black”!

There are a number of societies catering for local art and collectors in the region including NADFAS, Hull & East Riding Antiques & Fine Arts Society – and the Myton Gallery in Hiull’s Silver Street Arcade is difietely worth a visit for collectors of marine art and the history of marine art in the region!

Weather break makes life easier for stallholders

A successful day for February was reported by traders.

The weather makes all the difference to trade and the persistent cold high winds we’ve had recently have made the stallholders task almost impossible

Traders get together to make a presence on facebook!

Do you know who was involved?

Did you see a street fight last last weekend?

If so, you are needed to come forward to solve this crime and identify the perpetrators as caught late at night on video camera!

Pullans Family Butcher’s shop window was put-in, possibly accidentally, by a couple of play-fighters after a night out in the pubs this last weekend.

Thursday: normal service resumes – new window fitted

Replacement window fitted today

 

Preparations underway for November switch-on

Lots to see and do: cookery theater

Cookery theater under a marquee wows crowds!

All good organic green stuff grown in the ground! Locally-produced fresh produce.

Cottingham Sunday food and drink market packed yesterday!

also catering for those ‘on the wagon‘ ..

Some Sasparilla Sir?

 and off ..

Also seen: Great Newsome Brewery

Local farmers made a wise business decision to diversify getting a grant in 2007 to expand their micro-brewery to now provide a range of seasonal beers

 

And now for something completely different – ‘off the back of the lorry’, Sir?

Certainly not!

There was none of that slightly dowdy ‘off the back of a lorry‘ feel you get in some markets, as all the stalls presentations and produce were of first rate quality – credit to Cottingham Sunday Market and the event organizers!
