Robyn Denny - (Published or amended 2017-09-18)Print details for Robyn Denny CACD id E.9810

Saturday, 7th October 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.

Ashtorre Artists 2017 exhibition of art is now live at Ashtorre Saltash and you are invited to check out the artwork in an inspiring setting overlooking the Tamar on Saltash Waterside.
Founded in 2009 to create 150 images of Brunei’s railway bridge for its 150th anniversary, in successive years the group’s 12 artists have explored other aspects of the gallery’s riverside setting through the media of painting, drawing, collage and printmaking.
This year the theme is 'Tidelines’ and to extend the scope of the exhibition, pupils from Bishop Cornish and Burraton primary schools are also showing work on the related theme of ‘Flotsam and Jetsam'. Visitors, too, can get involved by joining together in recreating a painting by a well-known artist.
The show is open daily from 10am - 4pm until September 10th.
