New Light on Newlyn
20 October 2012 to 12 January 2013
Closed for Christmas and New Year from Sunday 23 December 2012 and re-opens on Wednesday 2 January 2013
Explore the art that has been created in and around the Cornish fishing port of Newlyn, Cornwall both past and present. Newlyn was the centre of a famous art colony from the 1880s and continues to inspire artists today with its scenery, coast and quality of light.
For this exhibition, selected members of the Newlyn Society of Artists went on a tour of our stores and have created new work in response to that of the historical painters in our collection.
The exhibition will feature the following historic works:
'Winter - Roseworthy Valley, Camborne', by 'Lamorna' Birch
'Suspense - The Last Hope', by Richard Harry Carter
'A Fish Sale on a Cornish Beach', by Stanhope Forbes
'Village Rendezvous, Copperhouse Creek near Hayle',
by Stanhope Forbes
'Among the Pots', by Norman Garstin
'Newlyn Harbour', by Harold Harvey
'Marazion Marshes', by John Noble Barlow
'The Shrimper's Daughter', by Charles Napier Henry
'Wailing Place, Jerusalem', by George Sherwood Hunter
Lunchtime talks on 30 October, 27 November 2012 and 8 January 2013, plus Art Bites on 7 November and 12 December 2012 in connection with the exhibition.
