Associated Territories Exhibition - (Published or amended 2017-07-23)Print details for Associated Territories Exhibition CACD id E.9719

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

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.

Exploring Colour course - (Published or amended 2017-07-14)Print details for Exploring Colour course CACD id E.9708

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.

Saturday, 26th August 2017 until Wednesday, 30th August 2017

The Expressive Landscape five day course taught by artist Jack Davis is a fantastic new course aimed at freeing up your approach to landscape painting. Jack breaks down the painting process encouraging students to respond intuitively to the landscape. The course includes tuition with a variety of different paints and supports exploring how each different painting surface affects the process and the results. 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. At the heart of the course is always the response to the dramatic landscape of West Cornwall. Jack is an amazingly positive, sensitive and inspiring tutor who always manages to get the best out of people.
The course is open to all levels of experience from near beginners through to more advanced practicing artists.
With some coastal path walking the course requires a basic level of fitness.

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.

Truro Symphony Orchestra Concert - (Published or amended 2017-06-27)Print details for Truro Symphony Orchestra Concert CACD id E.9688

Saturday, 15th July 2017

A rare opportunity to hear a concert by our local professional orchestra, Truro Symphony Orchestra, whose players are donating their services free so that the proceeds will go to support music at the Cathedral. Truro Choral Society is providing practical support.
The programme includes Vaughan Williams’s beautiful The Lark Ascending, with orchestra leader Philip Montgomery-Smith as soloist. This tranquil piece is followed by a complete contrast in Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture. He composed it in 1880 to commemorate Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow, and the original idea was for a performance in a Moscow square with large orchestra, military band, cathedral bells and cannon fire. At this concert, audience members will be supplied with paper bags to be “exploded” on cue.
Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony is another of his popular works. The so-called Fate theme is heard in all four movements and gradually transforms to culminate in a triumphal march in the last movement to bring the concert to a resounding and exuberant conclusion.
Start time: 7.30pm
Tickets: £10 (under 19s free) from www.ticketsource.co.uk/truro-symphony-orchestra or on the door.

A Certain Kind of Light - (Published or amended 2017-06-24)Print details for A Certain Kind of Light CACD id E.9685

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.
