Dear art lovers,
As spring is here we have sprung in to life and stomped the highways and byways of Cornwall to unearth some new artists and we are so excited!
We welcome Tony Forrest and Julian Rowe. Tony earned his stripes as a hugely respected painter of wildlife but has more recently turned his hand to painting the glorious sun dappled harbours of St Ives and Mevagissy. Few locations enjoy such picturesque harbours, seemingly at every turn, it’s no wonder Cornwall has inspired artists since the 19th century, time has modernised but not dulled the magic. These works are mostly small but perfectly formed, each one a gem like vignette of pure escapism. We are proud and excited to have this new work in the gallery.
We are also looking forward to the new work arriving from Hayle based Julian Rowe whose light infused works exude warm and relaxed feelings, it’s like melatonin on a canvas and boy don’t we need that right now? His studies of back lit spring blossom lift the soul as do his coastal scenes with dark cliff shadows – or his early summer swallows swooping through trees. It’s an eclectic mix of subjects with a common denominator of happiness.
In May we are also hoping to announce the arrival of another giant of the art world, an artist we have pursued for some time, watch this space!We look forward to seeing you soon.
