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.

Place - Alchemy Of Nature by John O'Carroll

Saturday, 20th July 2019 until Tuesday, 20th August 2019

‘Place – Alchemy of Nature’ is an exhibition by artist John O’Carroll and is set to be the principal summer show at Cornwall’s Circle Contemporary Gallery for 2019. Inspired by ancient methods of painting, alchemy and ultimately the feeling of place, the exhibition features paintings which draw on Egypt’s ancient landscape and culture and the coastlines of Cornwall, both places which are critical to the artist, providing constant themes in his work. A Fine Art Gallery located between Padstow and Wadebridge in North Cornwall, Circle shows a selection of abstract and figurative artists whose primary inspiration is the natural landscape.  A principled gallery showing paintings, prints, sculpture, and fine crafts, Circle are committed to showing beautiful art that stems from living in harmony with nature.
