John Singer Sargent watercolours at the Museum of Fine Art Houston.  I went with Donna Glassford.

The quarries at Cararra, Bedouin in the middle east, harbours around the Mediterranean, Venice, gardens in Firenze, vagrants and other artists, Tommies at the end of the war.

Sargent was an outstanding society painter, but this exhibition of watercolours is so much more inspiring. Watercolour is a particular skill and you will never see better, but there is a fascinating compositinal judgement – a harbour seen through a row of trees, the underside of the Rialto.

Also interesting that this exhibition is of works held by the MFA Boston and Brooklyn Museum. It represents the work shown in two shows at Sargent’s New York dealer (1909 and 1912) which were both bought ‘in toto’ by the then Brooklyn Museum Director.

How can data impact on health?

Can you think of a way to improve the health of Glasgow?  Do you think that the environment impacts on the health of the people living in the dear green place?  More and more data derived from monitoring all sorts of things is available – do you think that data could make a difference?  Can you imagine how?  If you are a health professional the third of Open Glasgow’s Hackathons.  If your idea is good enough you could get £20,000 to develop it.

The team asked me to write a piece to stir up thinking about data and health – you can read it here: OPEN Glasgow | A city on the mend.  And it looks like I’m going to be on the judging panel which should be fun.

AESOP 1 | A Framework for developing and research arts in health programmes

Posted in Arts & Health, News, Research by chrisfremantle on April 4, 2014

If you are interested in planning research and/or evaluation into your arts and health projects, then you need to have a look at this new tool.  The point is that research needs structure, to be done reasonably consistently, and this looks like a very good way to build some consistency.

AESOP 1 | A Framework for developing and research arts in health programmes.

Very much look forward to hearing more about this as it develops.
