SIR PETER BLAKE PRINTS SHOW
St Ives goes POP! with a welcome return to the gallery by the greatly respected 'godfather of British pop art', Sir Peter Blake, with a new exhibition of collectable signed limited edition prints from the past 25 years of his career. Since the early days, Blake has been fascinated with all streams of popular culture, and the beauty to be found in everyday objects and printed ephemera.
With the closure of the Tate St Ives until 2017 this popular exhibition showcases collectable works by prominent St Ives and British names, including Sir Terry Frost, Sandra Blow, Peter Lanyon, Ben Nicholson and Roger Hilton. Also featuring paintings by St Ives-born artist Matthew Lanyon and new works by sculptors Margaret Lovell and Peter Hayes. A "must-see" show.
Come along and join in the fun at our award-winning beachside gallery to celebrate our sizzling Summer + Autumn Collection. With nostalgia-evoking works about childhood at the seaside by Ann Winder-Boyle, and large-scale peopled beach paintings by Nick Bodimeade, to name just two, there is something for everyone to enjoy this summer and autumn.
