Exhibition - Into the Mystic - Steve Payter
 
Into the Mystic is the latest body of work from photographer and enamel artist, Steve Payter of Artisan Cornwall. Its focus is the elemental and raw nature of the evocative Penwith Peninsula, and comprises photography, jewellery and a new range of fused enamel images.

Much of the new work has a ‘water and rocks’ theme and the flagship image is an atmospheric shot of ancient sea-worn boulders at Porth Nanven emerging wet and gleaming from the enveloping mists of the incoming tide. The image is printed direct onto a frameless aluminium panel providing a glare-free finish and a subtle shimmer which emphasises the colours and textures of these fascinating rocks.

Complementing the photographic work, but on a much smaller scale, will be a new range of framed abstract images created in fused enamel. Using copper and aluminium as a base, Steve fuses and builds up layers of enamel to create individual and contemporary pieces of work that are redolent of the natural vistas of Cornwall’s seas, skies, rocks and moors.

Completing the show will be Steve’s range of enamel earrings - graphic designs in a range of shapes and sizes in aluminium, copper and stainless steel.

Mounted prints and cards will also be available.

Saturday 9th - Friday 15th June 2018
10.30 am - 5.00 pm daily.

Imago Theatre - 'Footfalls' and 'Endgame'
 

'Footfalls' deals with a specific situation, an isolated daughter called May caring for a dying mother. May, who is in her forties, is pacing up and down in her dishevelled night clothes.
The play was written in 1976 for the actress Billie Whitelaw and was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre directed by Samuel Beckett.

'Endgame' has a minimalist interior, four people live out their time: Hamm, his parents Nagg and Nell, and his servant Clov. All the characters, with the exception of Nell who is beyond caring, are waiting for something. A classic play from the ‘Theatre of the Absurd’.

Saturday 2nd June 2018
Performance 7.30 pm - doors 7.00 pm.

Christine Penberthy - Artist.

Born in a village just outside Birmingham in 1940. My mother told me later that the name of the nursing home was called St. Ives. At 3 yrs old. I was too young to be aware that we were at war . It was quite normal for me to see barage balloons, spitfires , bomb craters , barbed wire ,tanks going up and down the road and long queues, ration books in hand . In fact , as a small child , I found everything really exciting.

I have always loved drawing and painting. I won my first prize at the age of 8 yrs.at school in a safety first competion. At 15 I went to Sutton School of Art. My teacher said that I “Definitely had a talent”. It felt good to get that encouragment.

In 1962 I came to St Ives which had long since been my dream. As I stepped off the train I could see the lights around the harbour , felt the warmth of the seting sun and I knew somehow I would stay.

In 1963 I married into a Cornish family. I had five children. Bringing them up was a wonderful experience but very time consuming and painting was put on hold . I did find time to go to the St Ives School of Painting and joined the life classses, led by Majorie Mostyn and Leonard Fuller. That was a exciting time to be in beautiful St.Ives in the 60's with so many talented artists.

I rejoined the life drawing classes in the early 90's before starting an access foundation course based at Falmouth School of Art in 1989/1991. which was succesful - but because of a tight personal budget I was unable to continue onto the B.A. course in Fine Art. Not deterred I worked hard to make my own way in the art world. I have sold work at the Society of Artists, Norway Square, St.Ives, in private sales and had work in the group, “Taking Space”. I had a succesful one woman show, at the Mariners Gallery Norway Square with many sales.

I am now a member of the St Ives Arts Club and show some of my work on a regular basis. I have grown in confidence and my work shows my great interest in the “Human Being”. As human beings we have an enormous untapped potential for strength ,compassion and courage. I like to dig deep within myself to find these qualities and somehow I hope to share the possibilities that this has shown me with other people through my paintings and drawings.

Nick Harper

Son of the legendary UK singer-songwriter Roy Harper, Nick was born in London and raised in Wiltshire. He played the guitar from the age of 10 and was surrounded by the likes of Keith Moon, Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and Dave Gilmour as he grew up.

Here is an artist worth far more than the sum of his parts. His impeccable musical pedigree means nothing without the skills to back it up and skills Nick has, in his virtuoso guitar playing, song-writing and signature vocal acrobatics. Over a solo career of 10 studio albums, 2 EPs and 2 live albums - as well as the recent vinyl career retrospective - the quality of his musical output has only improved.

Saturday 31st March 2018
7.00 pm.
