NEW BEGINNINGS: AFTER THE STORM 
1
0 FEB – 17 MARCH

In the aftermath of flood damage caused by Storm Eleanor, the award-winning  Porthminster Gallery in St Ives will re-opens its (new) doors to launch its 2018 season of selling shows with 'New Beginnings: After The Storm'. 


The exhibition will showcase a diverse selection of original contemporary artworks by six artists new to the gallery, working at the leading edge of ceramics, glass and mixed-media. Most are showing for the first time in St Ives and Cornwall.

 

Recent Falmouth graduate Rosie Smith was selected for her delicately drawn muted landscapes, which will complement the painterly, abstract paintings by Cheltenham based artist Camilla Ward, and the charming, nostalgic beach-combed mixed media sculptures of Kirsty Elson. Ceramics by the award-winning Edinburgh based ceramicist Lara Scobie, will be a counterpoint to the prizewinning kiln-fused glass sculptures of Surrey based artist Lisa Pettibone.  


Former cage fighter and kickboxer turned celebrity potter Nam Tran was one of the contestants in last year’s BBC TV series, The Great Pottery Throw Down, and the gallery is pleased to be revealing his latest wheel-thrown raku creations to a new audience here in St Ives.

Prices of the artworks in show range from £90 to £2,000, and the Own Art interest-free purchase plan is available on all works.
