Christmas Has Started

We had a fantastic busy opening evening last night, with some last minute additions in the form of truly lovely Tozer classics, look at this...

It's a little beauty, in the gallery now and could be yours for only £49.50 per month with own art, that is equivalent to less than three and a half pints of middle (spingo from Helstons Blue Anchor) per week, according to my dear husband. Now I know what I would prefer and which is better for your health!

We also had a delivery of Annie Hellyer's beautifully mesmeric pots, hot off the kiln. Full of energy and perfect meditation all at one and the same time, starting from only £75 they are striking collectors pieces and I want, with a very special shelf to show off its pristine form as well. I hope Father Christmas is listening!

We will be open for late night shopping every Thursday evening untill Christmas, and our window will also be growing...that's exciting! Watch this space...I will update!

Catching The Wave!

Helford Morning by Richard Tuff
44.5cm x 57cm  SOLD
We have had a very busy few weeks. Battersea Affordable Art Fair was our best fair to date, selling very well for Miles Heseltine, both his extraordinary, huge plein-air drawings as well as his wonderfully expressive and painterly paintings.  We sold a glorious Wadsworth and a lovely collection of Wimperis paintings.
Right now in the gallery we have the tail end of a simply gorgeous Richard Tuff collection, The Colours of the South Coast.  Richards work continues to evolve in many ways, his mastery of colour seems to grow with every exhibition and the confidence and fluidity with which he handles the paint is beautiful.
Boats by the Quay
32.5cm x 38cm £750
They have been flying out of the gallery.  If you have been unlucky this time we are holding a 25th anniversary exhibition of Richard Tuff's work next June, 6th to 20th 2014, a date to put in your diary!
New Work from Nigel Chamberlain

We have had a selection of work from one of our new artists, Nigel Chamberlain, two have already sold, as they were leaving the gallery to go to the framers!  He is one to watch, I am hoping that we will be able to show them for the Christmas collection.

Christmas is fast approaching, we have our Christmas Mixed Exhibition, Little Gems, opening evening (mince pies, mulled wine, mini masterpieces and merriment).  We have a great collection from a lot of our artists of smaller works for under £500 as well as some impressive larger pieces.  Please join us to start the festive season from 6pm on Thursday 28th November.  It is the first night of late night shopping in Falmouth and we shall be opening until 8pm every Thursday up to Christmas.

What a Great Summer

It has been a very busy summer at the gallery.  A mixed show, "Cornish Light" throughout the summer with solo shows every two weeks.  Ben Warners was a fantastic collection, much anticipated and now almost sold out.  That was followed by a stunning collection of Andrew Tozers work, Cornwall in all its splendour, beautiful paintings which flew out of the gallery.

We have had several commissions completed by various artists, all of which have been received with much pleasure.
