Life during Covid 19 pandemic has given novelist, poet, photographer and now painter Ann Kelley the time to observe and record the St Ives seaside garden where she is shielding., peopled with its colourful flowers, wildlife, birds, insects and cats. Joy shines through the gloom of this strange year.  

 Life through Rose-Coloured Spectacles could have been the title of this exhibition. A late starter, I only began to draw and paint about 5 years ago, and encouraged by  classes at Barnoon Workshop I illustrated my novella On a Moonlit Night. I use acrylics, gouache, inks and collage on canvas, board and paper, working every day, driven by the knowledge that life is short and I have much to learn.’  Ann Kelley

Wall Story - Zoe Eaton / 29 June - 13 July 2019

An exhibition of paintings by Zoe Eaton. 'Wall Story' started in India, January 2019. Zoe participated in a 5 week artist residency, along with 26 other artists from around the world - for the Gujarat Global Art Festival.
During this visit, Zoe was inspired by the beautiful vibrant walls and buildings she saw in India - including roadside walls with Grafitti, religious and political statements to buildings adorned with artworks, murals and traditional Gujariti designs. The experience in Gujarat provides inspiration for new works made back home for this exhibition.
