We hope that it is not too early to be thinking about Christmas with just over four weeks to go! If that thought, combined with grey November days and the evenings drawing in, is beginning to fill you with dread then perhaps we can help. Take the Beside The Wave prescription towards a sunnier outlook with our Limited Edition Print Show. Bring back the bright colours of a Cornish summer, flowers over sparkling seas, bright cottages wedged between deep green trees against an azure sky, ripples in the sand, all of them can be yours to brighten even the darkest winter.
Not only will you be able to buy limited edition prints from our existing collection but we have published twelve new images. The new images have been chosen of paintings that we feel have been the ‘star of the show’ during their exhibition at the gallery over the course of the last year.We have chosen two classic Amanda Hoskin paintings, 'Summer Grasses towards Menabilly' and 'Foxgloves and Bright Water, Alldays Field'.
Both of these images feature the sparkling seas, dramatic skies and beautifully painted wild flowers that Amanda is rightly known and admired for.Two new prints from Emma Jeffryes, 'Harbour of Sea Greens' and 'Blossom over Town, St.Ives',
depict iconic views of St Ives harbour with warm turquoise seas, golden sands and delicate spring blossoms.
For John Raynes we have chosen three very different images, 'Porthtowan Cliffs'
and 'Porthleven Harbour, Low Tide' are classic examples of John's studies of pattern, form and light. 'North Coast near Bassets Cove' is a stunning exploration of colour and light.
Two of Andrew Tozer's paintings were chosen for their warm palette and popular views of Falmouth and Mousehole. 'Summer Heat, Mousehole’ evokes the warmth and colours of beautiful summer days by the shore while 'April Colours Falmouth'
captures the well loved view over the rooftops of Falmouth and King Charles church across to the Roseland peninsula.
Finally, three images from Richard Tuff complete the collection with an unusual composition, 'Durgan from Glendurgan'
a classic view, 'St Ives Pier' and an image from his much loved series of domestic scenes, 'Daffodils by the Porch'.All the prints are produced using the highest quality photographic and reprographic print processes. Prints are available unframed, mounted or fully framed in editions limited to 50. Each image is printed on high quality art paper and mounts are acid-free to ensure long life and perfect presentation. Frames are of natural tulip and the print is preserved behind glass.
You will be able see these new prints at the exhibition to be held in the gallery from 10am on Saturday 20th November until Saturday 27th November, they can also be viewed on line at the gallery web site.
