The Storm After The Calm – Summer Waves PV

The Private View for our Summer Waves exhibition was a lively affair made more lively by a fulsome flow of Sangria. Many of the artists involved in the show were in attendance, several others sent apologies for absence, others were simply AWOL!

The range of work in the show is very wide, as you’d expect in a mixed show of some 42 artists, and the overall quality is very high. The show includes works by: Jeremy Annear, Nicky Basford, Frank Beanland, Bill Bolger, Martyn Brewster, Chris Buck, Judy Buxton, John Charles Clark, Maurice Cockrill, Jessica Cooper, Henrietta Dubrey, John Emanuel, Lucy Foakes, Anthony Frost, Luke Frost, Jeremy Gardiner, Marie-Claire Hamon, Rebecca Harvey, Liz Hough, Chris Insoll, Mary Mabbutt, Daphne McClure, Bernard Irwin, Dan Kelly, Sue Kennington, Ffiona Lewis, Jason Lilley, Jane Macmiadhachain, Felicity Mara, Christopher Marvell, Alice Mumford, Colin Orchard, Sarah Poland, Brian Rice, Graham Rich, Karen Wade, Amanda Wallwork, Linda Weir and Phil Whiting.

‘For Jumbo’  to help put the Jumbo back on track

Stunned by news of the recent theft of their trailer, Cornish artist Jason Lilley has presented the St.Ives Jumbo Association with ‘For Jumbo’- a monumental work (5’8″ x 3′ 1″) which he produced specifically to “help put them back on track”. He added “The incomprehensible act of stealing from a charity must not be allowed to detract from their long term ideals.”

“The ideals of our Association, which include the emphasis we place on ‘community’ rather than ‘tourism’, clearly strike a chord with Jason and many of his colleagues.” said spokesman, Jonny Nance.  ‘We are immensely grateful and hugely encouraged by Jason’s extraordinary act of creative generosity.”

‘For Jumbo’ will go on sale for £2500 shortly at The Belgrave Gallery, St.Ives to coincide with the September Festival. The gallery has also offered to donate part of their commission.
