February 2020 : Art works on board QE2
« on: Feb 03, 2020, 07:05 PM »
This month's theme is "Art works on board QE2", chosen by Twynkle, the winner of the October 2019 competition.

Lots of art works were on board -- pictures, sculptures, the design of the furniture and cutlery, the music produced by the musicians -- we can take a broad view and encompass all sorts of art.



The prize this month
is a copy of the publication "QE2 A photographic journey", donated by me.

This is currently available from amazon.co.uk at GBP 12.55 :

Alternatively, June Ingram is offering a jigsaw of the prizewinning picture. The choice is yours -- which will it be?



How to enter

The album is open -- so now is the time to look for your three most interesting pictures on this theme during QE2's service years. Wishing you happy memories as you search your photo collection to find up to three pictures to upload to the competition album.

This link will take you straight there : Art works on board QE2.

If you have not uploaded photos to the Forum Gallery before, have a look at these instructions, and if you have any problems, just contact us on admin@theqe2story.com. You could even email the photos to this address, and we can upload them for you.

It is wonderful! It just depends on what one considers to be a work of art -- to my mind, even the way the beds were laid out at night was a work of art. Or the way the petits fours were presented after dinner. Let your imagination lead the way :) .

Yay and hooray!
This could be Fantastic....Can hardly wait, and looking forward the best collection of the most interesting Art imaginable.
From the bookmarks and cards in the Library to those amazingly quirky statues, sculptures and live musicians...
The leather picture, the John Piper tapestries, the Chartroom poetry...
Carpets, Lighting in the ceiling off the Queens Room, the Queen herself and more...
We can make QE2 really happy to know these and so much more are very much still alive!

QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for what seemed like ages...Please don't leave her looking more like a Hotel-with-a-Hull than the greatest Liner afloat - Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

3 people have entered photos so far. Looking forward to lots more!

Twynkle has given us some ideas -- and we leave it up to you to decide what is a work of art  ;D .
