Spring Exhibition: Penwith Society of Arts, St Ives, 13th February 2015

Feb 17, 2015


Over the closed winter period all three gallery areas have undergone a major programme of re-decoration with many walls being re-lined and a new fire-resistant ceiling installed in the Main Gallery. Much effort has been made to bring the display spaces to a high standard of readiness for the coming season and the benefits are clear to see with work selected for display by the committee looking superb in the freshly painted environment.

The entry was a large one and proved quite a challenge for those selecting. But the range and variety has made for an excellent balance to the show with a full gamut of mediums to be seen.  Three dimensional work in the form of sculpture, ceramics and pottery is particularly strong for this opening to the year.

In addition, the cafe area has benefitted from the re-hang with numerous smaller-scale works on display, as distinct from the main exhibition.

Running concurrently in the Studio Gallery is Hidden Frames, an exhibition of intriguing images by the celebrated photographer Roger Manton. This exhibition, beautifully hung, is worthy of a visit in its own right.

"I took the time to walk around the Show the morning after the Preview, to quietly take in everything. I think it looks stunning!" Jane Yates, Secretary
