Fragile Field | Ceramics by Hilary Mayo
Where the Sea Meets the Land | Paintings by Chloe Holt

25 May to 22 June

Hilary Mayo returns with a collection of work that continues her exploration of the spectacular Icelandic landscape. Fragile Field makes reference to the negative effects of our current geological era, in which human activity is profoundly reshaping our planet, as evidenced in Iceland’s receding glaciers and the impact of tourism on the country’s ecology.

Accompanying this exhibition is a new collection of painting by Chloe Holt entitled Where the Sea Meets the Land. Simplicity is the defining principle in these paintings, which connect new works inspired by St Ives with a previous body of work based around the seafaring culture of Venice.

John Miller

Throughout his career John Miller was closely identified with the New Craftsman gallery. His lifetime partner Michael Truscott kindly allowed this association to continue following John's death in 2002, and we are therefore proud to exhibit remaining works from John’s Cornwall studio.
