Founded by Gordon and Cathy, mylastboard contains articles, views, comments, photographs and lots more on the subjects of art and science.
I am Cathy Bell an art historian, artist, writer and freelance curator. In this space I would like to share various ideas about art and culture incorporating such items as published and unpublished articles/reviews, personal views and artwork.
I am Gordon and my interests are mainly in science, mathematics and engineering. Why mylastboard? The image you see above is a copy of the contents, after 23 years of teaching, of my last board. The subject was thermofluids.
We hope to provide some interesting and though-provoking content.

Good News - New Art Space In Livingston
At last the chance to develop a creative centre in Livingston. In the "Volunteering" section of this website I said that if an opportunity to do something here came up I would jump at it. Well, the opportunity did come up in the shape of an EP Spaces property to rent at a very reasonable price. This is an initiative by the Edinburgh Printmakers to utilise empty premises which would otherwise become neglected. Instead they are transformed into arts venues, split into various sections and occupied by people who want to create and produce art and/or use for creative projects. We were fortunate enough to secure a space and will move in soon, this gives us the chance to develop our work and reach out to the community in Livingston and surrounding area with the intention of helping to stimulate and democratise the artistic environment here. The picture below shows the venue Barbara Ritchie House which was previously the HM Revenue & Customs offices.
