Set amongst us again...the arousal of Jack Clemo

I have yet more joyful news regarding the conference on Jack Clemo....

             ...and here is the part where my good self is mentioned (so very proud)

Jack Clemo Exhibition

Wheal Martyn
Friday 31st May - 9th June (Opening Hours)

Peruse a variety of Clemo related artefacts. This exhibition gets to the heart of Clemo and his work and includes drawings of Clemo by Heather Spears, portraits by Lionel Miskin, his writing desk and typewriter, photos, letters, manuscripts and a Clemo-inspired installation by local artist Kyla Sidwell. This is the first time that all of these items have been exhibited together. Artefacts have been collated from the Jack Clemo Memorial Room, the University of Exeter Archive, the Royal Cornwall Museum and the Wheal Martyn Archive.

Entry will be free for conference attendees and the parts of the exhibition in the foyer of Wheal Martyn will be free for all. Access to exhibits displayed in the Wheal Martyn museum will be charged at the usual entry price.                                                                                                                                                                      
I am working on a new canvas piece especially for this exhibition whilst streaming out the words to finish my essays on deadline, 20th May. It is this Friday when I'll be donning the headphones again and sitting opposite the lovely Sue Farmer on Redruth Radio, expect at least one Clemo poem to be read aloud....and probably a couple of mine too...
Just had to mention my long hike today over to St Enodoc to see;
 John Betjemen's resting place,
 so feminine and full of grace,
open petalled, pretty church,
woven scrolls that sliver-search
 does my womanly eye behold
a book open and telling-told
 how my sex was once sold 
how art thou Bible bold
