This Friday sees the doors open to a Good Friday treat – forget the hot cross buns (mind you, we might have a few lurking in the kitchen) and come and see our urban show AMERICA’S FINEST (and others)
Now a biennial event, with expectations growing, we always takes pleasure in putting this exhibition together in what is a semi-urban environment. Showing Urban work generates a different discussion/angle in St Ives than it does in places like Baltimore and London but it’s equally important to show off. Not only does it give people living and visiting Cornwall access to international urban artists but it brings to light skaters, surfers and artists in Cornwall who are interested in its politics. Plus, it is helping us as a gallery look at skaters and surfers who are artists involved or connected to this genre and who live in Cornwall’s seascape. Artist’s who work in further afield seascapes interest us too so look out in the future.
This week, we are concentrating on mainly overseas names connected to cities. We launch online today so it’s a good time to point you to past shows.
