Incunables: the infancy of printing

Saturday, 4th March 2017 until Tuesday, 31st October 2017

Incunables: the infancy of printing as seen in the Lanhydrock library.
Incunables is a term that refers to early books printed in Europe before 1501.
Lanhydrock has 28 of this type of book, unusually high for a private collection.
This exhibition in the historic Gallery will draw on the library collection in order to show some of our early printed works.
This will be the first time that our incunabula will be shown in a single exhibition.
This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.
Assistance dogs are welcome.
Accessibility: steps are on the route to the Long Gallery.
Lanhydrock, 2 Treffry Lane, Bodmin, Cornwall PL30 5AD

That Continuous Thing: Artists and the Ceramics Studio, 1920 – Today

Friday, 31st March 2017 until Sunday, 3rd September 2017

Exploring the diverse forms, energies and locations that define the modern ceramics studio.
The ceramics studio has always been a place where tradition meets experimentation. Spanning 100 years, this exhibition explores the diverse forms, energies and locations that define the modern studio. Ranging from the rise of studio pottery in the 1910s to a number of new commissions by a young generation of UK-based artists, That Continuous Thing – a quote from the American artist Peter Voulkos – traces the changing shape of the ceramics studio over the last century.
Opening with exchange between Japan and the UK in the 1910s and ’20s through the emergence of studio potters such as Bernard Leach and Shoji Hamada (who moved from Japan to St Ives in 1920), William Staite Murray and Dora Billington, the exhibition leads on to the Californian ‘clay revolution’ of the 1950s and ‘60s, with sculptures by the pioneering sculptor Voulkos and his students, including Ken Price, Rudy Autio and Ron Nagle. A specially commissioned series of ceramic sculptures by the young British artist Jesse Wine will be included in response to the display. The final section of the exhibition, developed with artist Aaron Angell, recalls artists working in London in the ‘70s and 80s, celebrating the experimental work of Gillian Lowndes, Richard Slee and other ‘hand-building’ contemporaries. These will be shown alongside a presentation of works by a number artists – including Anthea Hamilton – made over the last three years at Angell’s London-based Troy Town Art Pottery, which he describes as ‘a radical and psychedelic workshop for artists’.
Supported by the Victoria and Albert Museum, Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation, The Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, Japan Foundation and Idlewild Trust.

Jessica Warboys

Friday, 31st March 2017 until Sunday, 3rd September 2017

Jessica Warboys will fill the sea-facing galleries at Tate St Ives with specially commissioned work, alongside films, sculptures and large-scale paintings.
Her work is informed by personal or collective memories – historical, mythical or fictional – and this solo show will consider her use of symbolism, form and her approach to landscape.
Warboys often employs natural elements in making her works. The exhibition will feature specially commissioned Sea Paintings, which will immerse the galleries overlooking Porthmeor Beach, in floor-to-ceiling colour. Made on the Zennor coast, near St Ives, these enormous unframed canvases have pigment applied directly on them before being submerged in the waves. They are a physical document of Warboys’ collaboration with the sea, but will provide a backdrop to several new sculptures in the lower gallery. An installation of objects that reoccur across Warboys’ practice in film, performance and exhibitions, will be designed for the showcase. New forms and paintings will be also included in this one-off playful installation.

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.

Land and Sea Exhibition

Tuesday, 18th July 2017 until Friday, 28th July 2017

Circa 21 is hosting the debut exhibition of budding artists Rose Pratt and Roos Van Leeuwen – Land and Sea. The two girls explore their connection to the area around them through a range of different mediums such as painting, print making and drawing.
From the windswept moors to lush green valleys, the rugged cliffs to the rolling waves, these muses have inspired their shared passion for nature, art and a sense of spiritual connection with the land of West Penwith in Cornwall.
After local artist Miss Pratt graduated from her degree at Plymouth she has been honing her skills with watercolour and exploring the use of oil paints. Drawn to the flora of the wild landscapes and gardens her work displays larger than life flowers, embodying magical qualities, too highly detailed illustrations which invoke dreamlike stories.
Dutch born Roos Van Leeuwen graduated in 2014 and moved to Cornwall to further her exploration of different spaces. One of these places is the hidden world below the seas rolling surface. She captures this world in an array of colour with silhouettes that echo the landscape and living inhabitants.
Each artist has different paths they take artistically to express the beauty they find and an affinity they have with Cornwall’s natural landscapes.
Here at Circa 21 we see these two elements in harmony.

Rhythms of Dancing Light by Ant Viney

Tuesday, 15th August 2017 until Tuesday, 5th September 2017

When I make marks on canvas, I often find they form rhythms that dance across the surface of my work. These rhythms are fundamental to the way I construct my paintings.
The rhythms I see all around me in the Cornish landscape are the primary source of inspiration for this exhibition.

Cornish landscapes

Tuesday, 22nd August 2017 until Friday, 25th August 2017

This inspiring four day landscape painting course takes students to paint in a number of dramatic coastal locations which are off the beaten track and intensely beautiful. The course will take in some of West Cornwall's most special places such as the coast path near to Lamorna Cove, Penberth Cove and the cliffs above Cape Cornwall among other spots.
Maggie O’Brien will help students to create highly individual, atmospheric works which express the essence of Cornwall. The course enables students to try their hand at painting with oil making studies with the supportive presence of Maggie always on hand encouraging students to try new things and find their own favoured techniques. For some painting with oil will be a new experience and with lots of help from Maggie past students have found that it's become quite addictive.
This work may be figurative or abstract or occupy the exciting ground between the two.
Teaching will be tailored to individual need and include one to one tuition and group demonstrations using a variety of tools such as brushes, knives, sticks, hands, rags etc and a variety of paints and drawing materials and techniques.
A fantastic opportunity to spend four days out in the amazing coastline around West Cornwall with one of the most experienced artists working here today.

Flats and Sharps

Friday, 25th August 2017

Hailing from Penzance, in the South West of England, Flats and Sharps blur the lines between Bluegrass, Folk, Country and Pop, performing their own highly original songs as well as their renditions of Bluegrass classics. These five incredible young musicians have honed their skills in 400 live performances over five years, charming and wowing audiences along the way.
Flats and Sharps have come a long way from their humble beginning busking in Penzance as 17 year-olds to performing on the Town Square stage at the Country 2 Country Festival at the O2 in London, at Proms in Hyde Park, London which was recorded for later broadcast on the Bob Harris Country show on BBC Radio 2. Along the way that have played for (and with) the Governor of Kentucky (who jumped on stage to play with them), won fans at scores of festivals including Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Maverick, Ireland’s Westport Folk and Bluegrass Festival and many Bluegrass and Folk Festivals in Europe
Flats and Sharps are ones to watch out for, five talented young men who make friends wherever they play.

The painting methods used on the course are often far from traditional and as such it is a real eye opener in regard to new ways of working.

Jack is an amazingly positive, sensitive and inspiring tutor who always manages to get the best out of people.

Exploring Colour course

Thursday, 31st August 2017 until Friday, 1st September 2017

Luke Frost is well known for his exciting use of colour and comes from a line of celebrated colourists including his grandfather Sir Terry Frost and his father Anthony. This exciting course explores how to capture, mix and combine found colours with paint.
The course starts with a session down at Newlyn Harbour where Luke will help students to explore the process of making studies from the colours and forms found among the surrounding fishing boats, empty crates, nets, sea and harbour walls. Returning to the school the group will be given a series of exercises to help them approach colour contrasting and combining. Each student will tackle this differently some focusing closely on the colours and forms recorded down in the harbour while others may choose to work in a more abstract way.
Luke will discuss his approach to painting with some examples of his work to hand and with lots of art books and exhibition catalogues on modern and contemporary artists he will help students to understand how a number of well known artists have explored colour in their work such as John Hoyland and Patrick Heron among others.
Much of the course will be hands on with a huge array of mixed pots of paints shared between the group so they can dart back and forth between the colours and their work all the time being encouraged to explore how colours are informed by those around them.
The course also includes experimenting with coloured paint applied to different surfaces from paper and board through to aluminium and their impact on painted colour.
All materials are included in the price of this course.

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

Flambards Christmas Fayre

Saturday, 2nd December 2017 and Sunday, 3rd December 2017

Back for its third year, Flambards once again hosts its wonderful Christmas Fayre, a festive and family-friendly event, combining the magic of Christmas with the perfect opportunity to choose some great gifts and treats.
The Fayre will be brimming with local goodies - loads of fantastic stalls of affordable, high-quality products, food and drink, in and around the park, including the Exhibition Centre, Cafe area, Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz, where you can wander around the stunning exhibitions.
And for those wanting a bite to eat, Flambards’ spacious under cover cafe and various food outlets will be open throughout the weekend with a wide variety of refreshments.
Live music from Helston Town Band will add to the festive atmosphere and we’re delighted to have them along again, they are always a huge hit, getting everyone into the Christmas spirit.  And of course  Santa will be there all weekend – catch him meandering through the park with his elf or see him sat down for meet and greets at specific times during each day – wherever you see him, he’ll be happy to stop for a chat or a photo opportunity – don’t forget your camera!
For this very special weekend, Flambards have set the amazing price of only £1.00 entrance per person – this includes entrance to the Fayre, the Victorian Village and Britain in the Blitz, as well as ample free parking. Amazing value for what’s going to be a great Christmas shopping experience and a brilliant, festive weekend.
Open Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm
(Please note than no dogs, other than assistance dogs, are permitted in the park).
