The exhibition is called, 'Patrick Heron' and runs until 30th September

The exhibition will stretch from Heron’s early work in the 1940s to his death at the very end of the 20th century, showing the full evolution of his vibrant abstract paintings.

Making use of the gallery’s new building, the show will include a number of large-scale paintings offering visitors a unique opportunity to explore this modern master’s sense of scale, colour and composition.

With thanks to the Patrick Heron Exhibition Supporters Group.

The exhibition is called, 'Virginia Woolf - an exhibition inspired by her writings'. It opens on 10th February and will be presented until 29th April. 

Discover art from 1850 to the present, inspired by the writing of this celebrated author

Author of classic texts including To the Lighthouse and the pioneering feminist text A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf spent much of her childhood in St Ives.

This exhibition is led by her writing, which will act as a prism through which to explore feminist perspectives on landscape, domesticity and identity in modern and contemporary art - with works by over 80 artists, including Laura Knight, Gwen John, Vanessa Bell, Winifred Nicholson, Sandra Blow, Barbara Hepworth, Claude Cahun and Dora Carrington.

This exhibition was made possible with a Jonathan Ruffer Curatorial Research Grant from Art Fund.
