Most of our art exhibitions are free - simply come along during opening hours to view. There is usually work for sale - often pieces by St Ives artists that you won't find anywhere else. Prices are reasonable and in a range to suit all budgets.

A dramatisation of the autobiographies of New Zealand author Janet Frame.

Originally produced as a television mini-series, the film, as with Frame's autobiographies, is divided into three sections, with the lead role played by three actresses who portray Frame at different stages of her life:

September Festival - Film Season - Annie Leibovitz - Life Through A Lens
 

Traces the artistic self-realization of Annie Leibovitz, from childhood through the death of her beloved friend, Susan Sontag, and includes snippets of Leibovitz's last visual memories of Sontag.

The film traces the arc of her photographic life, her aspirations to artistry, and the trajectory of her career through phases that included the tumultuous sixties in Berkeley, CA., touring with the Rolling Stones, a mentorship by Hunter S. Thompson, and, later, capturing the last candid moments of John Lennon's life with Yoko Ono.

It closes with her reflections on life, children, and the the wake of her relationship with Sontag. The archival material presented here is invaluable for framing an understanding of this immeasurably influential visual artist.
