LINDA STYLES: DOWN BY THE SEA
A Showcase of New Ceramic Works
1st March to 5th April
An exhibition of vibrant works by one of Cornwall’s best loved and most recognisable ceramic artists. Styles’ practice relates to the exploration of the instinctual and expressive and our endless immersion in the colourful chaos of real life. With an emphasis on spontaneity, she creates standalone pieces which challenge functionality in the traditional sense. Combining deliberate awkwardness of form with naive pictorial narrative, each of these joyful ceramic works exude genuine character and warmth.
The showcase includes new pots and ceramic wall pieces, and will be on show throughout March.
Our 2014 Exhibition Programme
We have a fabulous programme of exhibitions planned for 2014, including painting, studio ceramics, sculpture and handmade jewellery by Cornwall and the UKs leading contemporary artists and craftspeople.
