Shirley Foote & Stephanie Cunningham
23 October to 20 November 2016
This Autumn, New Craftsman brings together the work of two of Cornwall’s most recognizable artists, each known for their highly distinctive stylization of the figurative. Painter Shirley Foote’s abstract landscapes are well known for their broad areas of muted colour and bright flashes of detail, while Stephanie Cunningham’s ceramic sculptures capture the very essence of animal form.

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. Please see our John Miller page for further information.
