Bathing Beauties exhibition in Scarborough

The Bathing Beauties exhibition has moved to Scarborough Art Gallery where it will be 'Re-imagining the Beach Hut for the 21st Century' until May 9. Longstanding readers of Shedworking will know all about it but for those still to encounter this marvellous show here's some information:
"This exhibition is an innovative and engaging look at the architecture of beach hut design. It evolved from the Bathing Beauties, a Hub touring exhibition which inspired 240 architects, artists and designers from 15 countries to compete for commissions to build their 21st century designs on the Lincolnshire coast. The best 100 models will be on show here in Scarborough."
It also features photos of Scarborough’s very own beach huts by Graham Shackleton and events run alongside it include

    I'm not liking this new look of Shedworking, a little slick for me.

  2. I'll add a bit more slack.
