Film - The Nutty Professor
1963
Starring Jerry Lewis.

A classic screwball comedy this month to ease you into the Christmas cheer! Easily enjoyable and very entertaining.

Nerdish and socially awkward professor 'Sherman Klump' creates and drinks a potion that temporarily turns him into the handsome, but obnoxious 'Buddy Love'.

Lewis' is superb in this comic spin on the Jekyll & Hyde story and fantastic playing the polar opposite roles.

Hope you'll come along for a giggly evening in good company and enjoy a mulled wine and mince pie (for a small donation).

Friday 2nd December 2016
Doors 6.30 pm. Performance 7.00 pm.

Since bursting onto the folk scene at the end of the noughties, Mercury Prize nominee Sam has blazed a trail as an outstanding singer and song collector. He is the founder of a burgeoning song collectors’ movement that inspires a new generation of performers to draw on living source singers rather than books and records. Sam is a 21st century artist, collecting new versions of old songs on his iPhone and laptop, but his repertoire is steeped in folk history and lore.

Film - 'The Wall' (Die Wand)
2012
Directed by Julian Polsler.
Starring Martina Gedeck.

A woman inexplicably finds herself cut off from all human contact when an invisible, unyielding wall suddenly surrounds the countryside. Accompanied by her loyal dog she becomes immersed in a world untouched by civilization and ruled by the laws of nature.

This film will make you think about humanity, nature and life - a poetic beautifully shot film.

I hope you will join us for this superb film.

Film - Crazy Heart
Starring Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal

Directed by Scott Cooper, 2009.
Bad Blake is a broken down hard-living country music singer who's had too much of everything along the way, yet Blake can't help but reach for salvation with the help of Jean, a journalist who discovers the real man behind the musician. Jeff Bridges gives a master class in acting and is worth the movie alone, and with Gyllenhaal & Farrell this is a slow-burn, realistic film with great character development...come and see it.

Exhibition - Sparks

An exhibition of mixed media artworks and paintings by artists with autism living and creating in Cornwall.

Spectrum ASD provides art workshops for its creative service users, the art created is displayed in this exhibition.

The artists who participate in the workshops create work based upon their experiences and interests.

For the artists, especially those that are non-verbal, it is an effective way to express their thoughts and feeling to those around them.

The work created is rewarding for the artists, it develops their confidence and skills and challenges their imaginations and sometimes this is evident in the art.

For example, a painting can be created and only after you rotate the work on its side does it reveal a new and clearer way to view the work, like Paul’s ‘Tree’ or Phil’s landscapes.

The weekly workshops are run by St Ives Artist and Spectrum Care Support Worker Darren Clarke.

Sunday 2nd - Friday 7th October 2016
9.00 am - 4.30 pm daily.

Exhibition - Louise Penberthy Jones

Photography by Louise Penberthy Jones.

Louise’s work is varied, but her real passion is the Cornish light and it’s impact on the sand and sea. She produces many beautiful images of the beaches most predominately around the Northern Cornish coast, one of her favorite areas. Her preferred time of day for working is the evening time when she can take full advantage what the gorgeous sunsets have to offer. She uses a technique of under exposure to produce images that have rich, vivid and dramatic colour and softness.

Exhibition - Steve Payter and Marie Keeling

Photographer/Image Designer Steve Payter and artist, Marie Keeling, are joining forces to hold an exhibition.

Although Steve’s show will predominantly feature his interpretation of the beauty of the Penwith Peninsula, there are also a few surprises including a strikingly graphic representation of Bristol’s Cabot Circus shot at night and printed onto a hand prepared-aluminium sheet.

Inspiration for his images stems from his eye for tone and form as found within the contours of the land, sea and city views that interest him – particularly the rocks, shores, coves and moors of Cornwall. His finely-honed editing skills bring out the details of both shadows and highlights lending a luminance to the images, and his creative interpretation leads to varying degrees of realism intended to make the viewer stop and think. He has harnessed the same locational inspiration for his latest range of enamelled jewellery, which he will also be showing.

Marie Keeling takes ideas for her work from industrial, mechanical or architectural sources. She loves the sculptural shapes of engines, boilers and other machinery, from the well maintained and polished to the rusty, crumbling and corroded. She will be showing work from her portfolio of paintings on canvas, collagraph prints, 3D works, cylinders and earrings and brooches. She usually enjoys colour, but at the moment is working in black and white with just a touch of gold leaf or red.

Wild Willy Barrett's French Connection

From a cafe in Paris, via a hoolie in Dublin, to a night out in New Orleans with rip-roaring fiddle and banjo – this band does it all!

A fabulous show suitable for all ages, directed by the inimitable Wild Willy Barrett.

Charismatic French singer, Aurora Colson takes centre stage, captivating audiences with her compelling and expressive vocals as she effortlessly tackles a wide range of styles: from Bluegrass to acoustic blues, with haunting Irish melodies and a touch of Piaf thrown into the mix.

At the heart of the ensemble are the indisputable talents of multi-instrumentalist, Wild Willy Barrett, cellist Mary Holland and Irish pipes and whistle player John Devine, whose outstanding musicianship was recently rewarded by an invitation to play in the presence of The Queen at Buckingham Palace.

Innovative arrangements beautifully performed on instruments including the guitar, cello, fiddle, banjo and uilleann pipes, all overlaid with a large dose of wry humour.

A unique and unforgettable evening!

Theatre - Adams Apple (A Love Story)

St Ives Arts Club Upstairs Theatre Company.
A Love Story - by Mike Ezra.

A play with just two characters on stage for an hour and a half with no other support than a hotel bed represents something of a challenge for any theatrical piece. Add in a love affair and you have something of a controversial and edgy venture for an amateur production. Adams Apple with its adult themes is bound to prick a few consciences.

Adam and Lucy work for a national company with branches around the UK. They meet at their works conference and enter into a relationship which for both of them at first is just a casual fling. However they meet again the following year and the relationship develops into an annual episode, blossoming along the way and threatening to encroach on their other lives.

Fate intervenes when Lucy has to give up her job (and her annual conference) to reluctantly have a family but the romance is rekindled when she returns to work several years later. However, as time goes by it seems that fate always conspires against them making a life together, but maybe, just maybe, love will find a way.

Wednesday 27th - Friday 29th April 2016

Blabbermouth Theatre - Daisy and Johnny

'Daisy and Johnny' deals with theme of falling in love. It looks at the myths and realities in a sometimes light-hearted manner, at others, a brutally realistic way.

It examines the often widely held beliefs, knowledge and experiences (though rarely spoken of honestly) of what it is to ‘fall in love’, ‘be in love’, and the reasons why it seems, on the whole, not to last.

Exhibition - Colours of Cornwall

Capturing the light in textiles and metalwork.
Alison Dupernex - Sharon McSwiney.

The idea for the ‘Colours of Cornwall’ exhibition evolved due to Sharon & Alison’s love of Cornwall, like many artists & makers! Sharon lives and works in St Ives while Alison is a regular visitor to the area.

Taking the Cornish landscape as their inspiration visiting areas of coastline discovering colours & textures which then encourage new colour combinations; the sparkle of granite, the vibrant turquoise sea & the beautiful lichen. The dramatic skies & seas, sandy bays & weathered rocks provide photographs, sketches & colour swatches collected during coastal explorations to collate into sketch books to inspire.

This is the first time Sharon & Alison have shown together, the contrast between softness & flexibility of yarn combined with the rigidity of metal creates an exciting visual display.

Sunday 14th - Saturday 20th February 2016
10.00 am - 5.00 pm daily.
