St Ives Modernists

Terry Frost RA | Patrick Heron | Denis Mitchell | Tony O'Malley | Tommy Rowe Robert Adams | William Scott RA
George Dannatt | Romi Behrens | Christopher Wood

 

8 - 31 October

 

 

Featuring some of the most iconic names associated with the St Ives Movement, this exhibition showcases vibrant, original screenprints by Patrick Heron; rare works in glass and ceramics by Terry Frost; characteristic abstracted still life paintings by William Scott, works on paper by George Dannatt, Robert Adams and Tony O'Malley, sculpture by Denis Mitchell and Tommy Rowe and drawings by Christopher Wood.

 

These artists were contemporaries, several of whom formed great friendships with each other and were very important and influential members of the St Ives Art Colony. Connecting these names with the later part of the 20th Century is a selection of paintings by the late Romi Behrens, who lived at Prussia Cove and had prominent exhibitions at the Newlyn Art Gallery and a number of London galleries during her lifetime. Behrens was also close friends with Heron and Frost. Moving in between figuration and abstraction this collection unites different explorations of coastal colour and Atlantic light that has attracted so many painters to this peninsula.
