A Certain Kind of Light

Thursday, 25th May 2017 until Saturday, 23rd September 2017

A Certain Kind of Light: Light in Art Over Six Decades is a major exhibition exploring how artists have responded to light, its transience and effect. Encompassing paintings, sculpture, photography, and installation, it features artworks created from the 1960s to the present day by fifteen leading artists.
The exhibition considers the different ways artists have explored the various aspects of light, from its importance as a source of illumination, as a pure sculptural material, as a mysterious force and as a source of energy that can be conceptually converted into other forms.
It includes Colour Construction by Peter Lanyon who was a leading figure at Newlyn Art Gallery in the 1950s and 60s, as well as camera-less photographs by Garry Fabian Miller who had a solo show here in 2008.
As part of the exhibition, and to mark the tenth anniversary of the opening of The Exchange, Cornwall-based artist Peter Freeman will reprogramme and update Lightwave, the dramatic artwork illuminating the glass façade of The Exchange that he first created when the gallery opened in 2007.
Artists in the exhibition: Roger Ackling, David Batchelor, Angela Bulloch, Garry Fabian Miller, Ceal Floyer, Peter Freeman, Raphael Hefti, Anish Kapoor, Peter Lanyon, Rut Blees Luxemburg, Julian Opie, John Riddy, Mark Titchner, Paul Winstanley, Toby Ziegler.
#ACertainKindOfLight
An Arts Council Collection Touring Exhibition. Curated by Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne with many works from the Arts Council Collection which is managed by Southbank Centre, London.

New Visions by Canon Robin Murch

Wednesday, 6th September 2017 until Tuesday, 3rd October 2017

Robin Murch, is a retired Anglican priest, who in retirement year 2000, took up art as a pass time activity. The pictures usually take care of themselves and end up only broadly like the initial ideas. The inspirations drip into the mind as the work progresses and beg expression. All this Robin finds as exciting fun. Over time Robin has developed the New Visions Project, which brings some pictures to be exhibited in Churches to assist with their outreach.

Associated Territories Exhibition

Saturday, 16th September 2017 until Friday, 6th October 2017

Our exhibition presents the works of four female artists from the Tri-city, Pomerania, Poland.
The Work consists of drawings, paintings and batiks. The subjects which interest us in our creativity are varied - these are our individual 'territories', which we are 'associating' in the framework of our common exhibitions and this is the potential of our informal group. We are not connected by the same slogans, ideas or beliefs, what associates us is the similar attitude to our work and the inner need for co-operation. This sort of attitude has created long lasting artistic friendships, common activity and common aims. All of us to a certain degree and meaning are leaders, but at the same time we want to share our work and be actively associating our individual territories.
Exhibition open 11-3. 16th Sept - 6th Oct Tues - Sat

John Armstrong: Dream & Reality

Saturday, 16th September 2017 until Saturday, 18th November 2017

This exhibition examines the diverse range of work produced over the lifetime of this intriguing artist. John Armstrong ARA (1893 - 1973) studied briefly at St John’s Wood School of Art but was essentially self-taught. His one-man exhibition in 1928 established him in avant-garde circles, including that of Unit One with Ben Nicholson, Paul Nash and others. He later became deeply involved in theatre and film, designing sets for the Royal Ballet and costumes for ten of Alexander Korda’s epic films. After the war, he spent a period of time in Lamorna before returning to London and continuing his eclectic style that encompassed still life and classicism alongside larger, more abstract works. Ground floor galleries. A selection of Newlyn School paintings on view upstairs in Gallery 5.

Robyn Denny

Saturday, 23rd September 2017 until Saturday, 6th January 2018

A solo exhibition celebrating the work of the painter Robyn Denny (1930-2014) is to be presented across both our venues this autumn.
Denny was one of an internationally acclaimed group who transformed British art in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, leading it into the international mainstream. His resolutely urban, large-scale abstract paintings captured the cool, modernising mood of the time. He graduated from RCA in 1957, and within a decade was enjoying considerable international success, alongside his contemporaries Howard Hodgkin, Bridget Riley, Peter Blake and David Hockney. In 1966 he represented Britain at the Venice Biennale with Anthony Caro, Bernard Cohen, Harold Cohen and Richard Smith and at the time of his 1973 Tate retrospective he was the youngest artist to be so honoured.
This exhibition is a celebration of the work of an artist key to British abstraction, who kept his eye firmly on America and his London contemporaries. This exhibition, concurrently presented at Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange in Penzance, offers an in-depth understanding of the evolution of his work over five decades and an exploration of the importance and contemporary relevance of his work. Importantly, the exhibition will draw attention to later works, dating from the early 1980s and beyond, which have rarely been presented publicly before.

Hansel and Gretel

Tuesday, 26th September 2017 until Friday, 29th September 2017

Hansel and Gretel by Humperdinck presented by Pop-Up Opera.
Pop-up Opera is an innovative touring opera company dedicated to making opera enjoyable and inviting, without losing the quality of musical performance. They aim to broaden the appeal of opera and to challenge the way opera is performed, by taking it into unusual spaces and making it fun, fresh and intimate.
Magical and dark, this is perhaps the most popular operatic fairy tale of them all. Brother and sister Hansel and Gretel are drawn into the idyllic yet dangerous world of the forest, where they encounter the Sandman, the Dew Fairy and, most frightening of all, the Witch.
In the dizzying excitement of the Witch’s Ride and the serene beauty of the children’s evening prayer, Humperdinck’s music magically evokes the contrasting worlds of the story.
Performances September 26 and 29 at 7.30pm and September 28 at 2pm

Sunday, 5th November 2017

Join us in Cornwall this Guy Fawkes Day for a half-day flute workshop.

Replace tone development dread with confidence and delight. Learn contemporary flute techniques that will help you refine, strengthen and deepen your understanding of the tools needed to create resonance in your playing. We’ll go beyond ‘just playing long notes’ and delve into topics such as extended techniques, vibrato, dynamic control and breathwork.
At the end of this one-day workshop you will be able:
Explore how your flute headjoint, body posture, mouth and throat positioning can be tweaked for your best sound.
Learn a variety of exercises that you can put into your daily practice routine to deepen into refining dynamics, articulation, lip flexibility and vibrato control.
Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided for you during your breaktimes.
Suitable for players that are approx. Gr. 3/4+ to advanced, including teachers, all ages welcome.
