The pasting up of murals for the SALA exhibition was running smoothly over the weekend.
Yesterday a strong north-westerly came out of nowhere as I was attempting to paste up at Marion and I ended up wearing the mural. We now have six of the fifteen images on the walls, but no hope of getting the remaining nine up before the beginning of the Festival on Friday.
With our beautiful balmy autumn weather in April, it didn’t occur to me that wind and rain are the enemy of wheatpaste. Though the images are moderately weather-proof when up, it’s getting them on the wall that’s the problem.
So if you are visiting the exhibition on Friday and wonder why most of it is missing, it’s the weather.

Parkholme Community Hall, Marion Road, Parkholme
