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.

Film - That English Woman

The true story of Cornish-born campaigner Emily Hobhouse (1860-1926) and her fight to expose the concentration camps set up by the British during the Boer War.

Starring Veronica Lang as Emily and Terence Alexander as her father, the Revd Hobhouse, the film traces her early upbringing in East Cornwall, her time as a social worker among the miners of Virginia and her aim to bring the Anglo-Boer War in South Africa to an end.

When she learned that the British troops were forcing women and children into concentration camps she decided to go out to South Africa and personally investigate the situation to bring it to the British Government’s attention.

In aid of St Ives Archive.

Miranda Sykes - Borrowed Places

Miranda Sykes, the acclaimed singer and bassist with 'Show of Hands' is returning to her roots. After a career spanning over 20 years, during which time she has played with many of the top musicians and singers within the folk world, she will be touring as she started out; one woman, one bass and one guitar.

Borrowed Places is a project that draws it's inspiration primarily from the songs and landscapes of her native Lincolnshire but seen through the eyes of someone who has lived away for many years. The themes are not specific; the land changes, it grows, it shrinks, it adapts and it resists but most of all it lives and breathes.

With her sensational voice, and accompanying herself, Miranda interprets the soul of the land and takes her audience on a journey that resonates with us all, wherever we live and it is one you won't want to miss.

Sunday 14th May 2017
Doors - 7.00 pm. Performance 7.30 pm.

Exhibition - Cyd Jupe and Steve Payter

Ceramic Sculptor, Cyd Jupe and Photographer, Steve Payter, are joining forces to present an exhibition of figurative ceramic sculptures, landscape photography and jewellery.

Working with stoneware crank, a gritty and strong clay, Cyd produces powerful pieces primarily based on animal or bird forms. She is using the show to introduce a range of new work including an impressive rendition of a piercingly blue-eyed, intricately feathered cormorant, a bright-eyed, white-spotted recumbent fawn and a quirky and characterful sitting piglet. All Cyd’s sculptures work equally well as either indoor or outdoor pieces and she is available for commission work.

Steve will be showing some of his latest photographic images capturing the magnificence of the colours and tones of the rocks, shores, moors and coves of the beautiful Penwith Peninsula and beyond. All images are printed, finished and framed personally by Steve, giving him control over the entire process from ‘shooting’ to ‘hanging’. Complementing his photography will be his latest range of enamelled earrings and pendants which are also inspired by the same dramatic locational references.

Saturday 29th April - Friday 5th May 2017
10.00 am - 5.00 pm daily.

Grand Sale of Fabrics, Threads, Beads .......

Calling all textile artists, crafters and
sewing bees!

Grand sale of fabrics, threads, beads, buttons, lace, deep frame picture frames and much more.

After many enjoyable years of textile crafting I have decided to hang up my needle threader and concentrate on other projects. But, I need to make some space at home so I'm parting with all the yardage (it was yards when I started) and associated bits and bobs collected over time, and there’s a lot of it.

Fabric lengths and remnants of all types, together with a huge variety of lovely things to spark your creative imagination, will be sold at prices well below even E-bay, so there will be lots of bargains. Cash only sales. Please bring carrier bags with you.

See you there!
Delia Brotherton.

Blabbermouth Theatre - Double Bill - 'Dogside Out' and 'Up and Away'
 

Dogside Out: Humankind in the doghouse ~ twenty-one fine tales - well wagged.
These short, interlaced pieces - humorous and dramatic - are about the human capacity for blending cruelty and kindness, reflected here in the many ways we treat our companion animals.

Up and Away: Cold earth shudders when a late love blossoms - a play.
Mary and George are deeply embedded in an exhausting, contentious married existence. Edna's chance arrival inspires love, hatred and the expression of needs long dormant. A humorous and moving examination of infirmity and strength - passion and morbidity - and the urge to recover purpose and meaning in our lives...before day's end.

Friday 3rd March 2017
7.30pm - doors 7.00pm.
