More Mermaid statues in England

By |December 12th, 2012|

Southport's Mermaid Statue

Southport’s Mermaid Statue

It was a day for mermaid statues in England:

More information was gotten on the mermaid statue in Lancashire – which may or may not actually be a mermaid statue.  Still investigating.

The Hensley mermaid to be installed on the Red Lion Hotel Lawn was reported.  I am getting more data on this as well.

Lastly, I found photos of a mermaid statue in Southport – near Manchester, and was able to find and get permission to use 3 photos of it.

Hensley (UK) to get a mermaid statue

By |December 12th, 2012|

Another town in England is adding a mermaid statue to beautify the city and promote art.   Read the article here.   Hensley is 20 or so miles east of London.

They plan to replace the statue every few years, selling the statue to a local business or other institution.  It is a great way to promote the arts.

SculptureWalkI recently visited Sioux Falls in  South Dakota, and saw their Sculpture Trail, which works on a similar idea – exhibiting sculptures in public for a year or more, then selling them and replacing them with other works.

Mermaids of Earth and Maine Mermaid statue in the news

By |November 29th, 2012|

Quoddy Tides Article 2012 11 23Well, there’s an unexpected twist – my book on Mermaids of Earth, which is still being written and about half done, is already mentioned in the news.

The Quoddy Tides in Maine is reporting on the production of a mermaid statue for the city of Eastport by sculptor Richard Klyver, who mentioned to them that his statue will be included in my book.

I’ll take that as an excellent start on the book’s marketing.
