Invisible Narratives

Saturday, 23rd March 2019 until Saturday, 15th June 2019

New Conversations about Time and Place
Rebecca Chesney, Lubaina Himid, Magda Stawarska-Beavan.
“A rural ecologist, an urban drifter and a diasporic optimist examine the invisible layers underneath, the lost spaces on the edge and the forgotten places in between.” Lubaina Himid.
The exhibition explores the work of three artists, Magda Stawarska-Beavan, Rebecca Chesney and Lubaina Himid, who consider the poetic investigation of place, space and time, through painting, sound installation and place-based research.
All three artists use their work to uncover the hidden, understand a place as it is experienced by those who know it well, and remember apparently unknown histories.
Each artist has made new work for the show.
Invisible Narratives is curated for us by Lubaina Himid CBE, winner of the 2017 Turner Prize.

Huguette Caland

Saturday, 18th May 2019 until Sunday, 1st September 2019

Lebanese artist Huguette Caland has her first UK museum solo exhibition at Tate St Ives.
Shifting between figuration and abstraction, large, colourful canvasses and detailed drawings from the 1970s and 1980s will explore the delicate balance between the suggestive and the explicit that Caland created in her work.
After moving to Paris from Beirut in 1970, Caland achieved artistic recognition with her exuberant and erotically charged paintings that challenged traditional conventions of beauty and desire. The female physique is a recurrent motif in her work, often painted like landscapes with voids and mountain-like forms.
Born in Lebanon in 1931, Caland studied art at the American University in Beirut and lived in Paris and California for many years, before returning to Beirut in 2013.
Free entry for Members.

Narrative: contemporary craft and art fair

Saturday, 25th May 2019 until Sunday, 26th May 2019

New contemporary craft and art fair that tells a story...
At St Austell College on the first weekend of May half term, Saturday 25th - Sunday 26th.
We’re creating a positive, family-friendly, relaxed weekend with festival vibes where people can meet and talk to makers and artists about their stories, processes and inspirations; chill out having a bit of lunch on the lawns and treat themselves to something unique to treasure.
We’ve been blown away by the talented makers and artists who’ve applied to exhibit. We’ll have:
-modern, original jewellery
-beautiful, bright art glass
-practical and artistic ceramics
-accomplished abstract art
-well-known, well-loved print-makers
-contemporary woodwork
-gorgeous textiles
-affordable art prints
-stylish homeware
The college grounds have beautiful sea-views towards Polkerris and Gribbin Head, shady trees and lovely sloping lawns so we’re planning on making the most of them so that everyone can relax outside, (hopefully!) in the sun and children will have fun things to do with:
-outside big toys and table tennis,
-delicious street food vans
-local buskers playing live music
-festival face-painting and hair-wraps
-Miss Elvy’s Skool of the Wild art activities
We’re aiming for the fair to be as plastic-free as possible; the fair has free entry for everyone, there’s loads of free parking and the college is about a 10 minute walk from St Austell mainline station.
