John Brenton - 1st to 15th December 2018
Open as an on-screen book

Remarkably this will be the eighteenth successive year that we have hosted a solo exhibition with John. During that time he has established himself as a leading contemporary land and seascape artist and has exhibited at both the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and with the Royal Society of British Artists. Painting en plein air, John can often be found battling the elements on a Cornish cliff top or dodging the incoming tide as he works to capture a scene. Predominantly working in oils, he employs a technique that uses both palette knife and brush. This gives his work a richly textured, vibrant style, so full of energy that it transports you to these evocative locations.

Nick J Williams - 11th to 25th August 2018
Open as an on-screen book

A firm favourite in the gallery, we are delighted to once again host an exhibition with Nick. This outstanding collection of thirty painstakingly detailed studies in oil will have taken him nearly two years to complete and will feature not only boats and animals, but his trademark views of the Fowey Estuary. Nick’s rendition of water and sea in all it’s guises is simply breathtaking. This exhibition will be available to view online from Sunday 22nd July.

Rob Braybrooks - 26th May to 9th June 2018
Open as an on-screen book

We have been delighted to represent Rob Braybrooks for several years, but this will be his first solo exhibition with us. Living in West Cornwall, Rob draws on a career in design and engineering to create these beautiful relief compositions in wood. Starting with sketches often drawn from his own photographs, each piece is hand cut. By presenting an image using two simple media, light birch and dark paint, your mind’s eye is free to create its own perspective. “Shapes become forms and spaces, taking us to familiar places.”

Amanda Hoskin "The Spirit of Fowey" - 31st March 2018
Open as an on-screen book

”For this collection I wanted to express the feeling and different moods of Fowey through the seasons. In spring Fowey slowly wakes from its quiet winter sleep. People appear, as do the flowers and grasses on the coastal path. Then in summer it is bright and lively and the warm sun dazzles in the Bay and bathes Polruan in its evening glow. When autumn arrives things begin to quieten down, but there are warm tones of browns and grey that fill the landscape and the sky. Finally winter is upon us and the seas crash in on the rocks by St Catherine's Castle and Ready Money Cove. The wind and rain crosses the horizon so quickly that any brave walkers can soon be drenched as they rush for shelter. This year we had snow, fields, rocks and roads covered in a deep white carpet. I had to paint quickly as it melted almost as fast as it arrived. I hope this exhibition gives a little insight into the life of Fowey and why it is such a very special place."

John Brenton - 2nd to 16th December 2017
Open as an on-screen book

What a remarkable achievement, for this is the seventeenth successive year that John has held a solo exhibition with us. During this time John has remained constant in his devotion to capturing in impressionistic style, the Cornish landscape and coastline. Every year, there has been a subtle progression in technique, bolder strokes and an ever growing range of subject matter. This year John has promised to include something a little different and has been spotted painting classic racing cars at his local hill climb! Not a man to rest on his laurels, his mastery of his subject has grown, as has his reputation. This exhibition of forty paintings will be displayed on our website from Tuesday 21st November and paintings will be available for sale from that date.

THE SOUTH WEST COASTAL PATH REVISITED. Several years ago, Sasha and her reluctant Ridgeback Jess, walked the entire length of the South West Coastal Path. Her tales from this epic journey were subsequently published in her book “A Brush with the Coast”. Such was the impact of this journey on Sasha, that she has now revisited the Cornish section of this walk and painted this beautiful new series of work, featuring her favourite scenes as only she can portray them. THE PAINTINGS IN THIS EXHIBITION WILL BE FEATURED ON OUR WEBSITE FROM SUNDAY 6TH AUGUST AND WILL BE AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE FROM THAT DAY.

Mike Bernard RI - 27th May to 10th June 2017
Open as an on-screen book

Mike is a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour (RI) and has exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. He uses mixed media, collage, acrylics and pastel in his beautiful and often complex paintings. As a base, these mediums allow him to create abstract structures that initially develop independently, before falling into place in the overall composition. This method allows pictures to evolve their own personality as they progress. The exhibition includes powerful and arresting studies of the Polruan and the Fowey Estuary and scenes taken from his wider travels.

Regular visitors to the Gallery will be familiar with Jill’s eye catching paintings of Pilot Cutters and Falmouth Working Boats, often depicted sailing in the Fowey estuary. She has sailed extensively on these boats and more recently in the waters off Greenland and Iceland. She knows all too well the moods of the sea and how these traditional boats sail, captured so brilliantly in this, her latest body of work.
