Sunday, 21st January 2018

Manifest your goals for the year ahead, by creating a Vision Board. Using powerful visualisation techniques, combined with exercises and discussion - identify and clarify your life goals - from health and fitness, to relationships and career.. We will look at how to set realistic and achievable outcomes, break these down into actions and consider obstacles.
Once aims have been clarified, choose one of your goals for the year ahead, and use this as a subject for your collage, or vision board. With help on hand from Tutor Zoe Eaton, select images and words from magazines, combined with mixed media techniques to create a beautiful image..
Your finished vision board works by 'fixing' and reinforcing your aims, whilst subconsciously informing your future decisions and actions to help realise your goals. Some research suggests that when you visualise an action, you stimulate the same brain regions as when you actually perform that action. It really can work.
There are two dates to choose from, price £10 inc materials and herbal tea.  To book please message us - places are limited.

Sam Carter - (Published or amended 2018-01-11)Print details for Sam Carter CACD id E.9997

Friday, 13th April 2018

Since being named Best Newcomer at the 2010 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards Sam Carter has been stirring audiences from Camden to Canada, via an attention grabbing appearance on Later… with Jools Holland and a dreams-really-do-come-true performance in a specially assembled band to back Richard Thompson at Shrewsbury Folk Festival.
Described as ‘the finest English-style finger-picking guitarist of his generation’ by Bellowhead’s Jon Boden, Sam has toured the world, equally happy to perform intimate solo shows on acoustic guitar, on electric with a full band, or to collaborate with other artists. In 2014 Sam teamed with Jim Moray to form False Lights, a band with the stated aim of updating the template of folk rock and making a joyful racket. Their 2016 BBC Radio 2 Folk Award nominated album Salvor, was praised from all corners – proving that people really were ready for traditional English songs played in a style that owed as much to Radiohead as it did to Fairport Convention.
Spring 2018 sees Sam embark on a solo tour playing songs from his acclaimed third studio album, How The City Sings.

Bringing Home the Catch: Art and Fishing in Newlyn - (Published or amended 2018-01-11)Print details for Bringing Home the Catch: Art and Fishing in Newlyn CACD id E.9990

Saturday, 24th March 2018 until Saturday, 9th June 2018

The Newlyn School artists ‘discovered’ this picturesque fishing village at a transitional moment in its history. Just as the painters were setting up their easels and depicting the lives of the local Newlyn community in the 1880s, its fishing industry was expanding rapidly. Featuring a wealth of paintings, photographs and artefacts from the period 1880 to 1940, this exhibition provides an insight into how the artists chose to represent these changes, or even to ignore them for the sake of artistic license. Curated with assistance from Dr Joanna Mattingly. Ground floor galleries. A selection of Lamorna Group paintings on view upstairs in Gallery 5.

Both the 2016 and 2017 event had an estimated footfall of around 4,500 throughout the whole day over Fore Street, Victoria Gardens and Longstone Park. The committee will hope to replicate these footfall numbers by once again offering a full day of non-stop entertainment.

Tim Shaw 'What Remains' - (Published or amended 2018-01-08)Print details for Tim Shaw 'What Remains'  CACD id E.9981

Saturday, 10th February 2018 until Saturday, 12th May 2018

A solo exhibition bringing together a number of works by the sculptor and acclaimed Royal Academician, Tim Shaw.
Drawn from personal experience, Shaw’s exhibition at The Exchange features two installations that address head-on the global presence and effect of terrorism and the pervasive sense of hidden powers having control over our lives.
Soul Snatcher Possession is a sculptural installation which portrays an ambiguous meeting of figures, the air taut with menace. Mother the Air is Blue, The Air is Dangerous is an immersive experience using video and sound. It is a deeply personal work which offers a visceral insight into Shaw’s experience as a child in Belfast when he and his mother were caught in an IRA bomb blast.
What Remains is a partnership with Anima-Mundi to present Tim Shaw’s work across two sites in Cornwall during 2017/18. Something Is Not Quite Right at Anima-Mundi, St Ives, 13 Oct – 9 Dec 2017, presented new sculptural installations, as well as a series of maquettes for Soul Snatcher Possession.
Tim Shaw was born in Belfast in 1964. He currently lives and works in Cornwall. He was elected to The Royal Academy in 2013 and made a Fellow of The Royal British Society of Sculptors the same year. Shaw has had a number of significant solo exhibitions throughout the UK, Ireland and internationally. Shaw has undertaken a number of public commissions including The Rites of Dionysos for The Eden Project, The Minotaur for The Royal Opera House and The Drummer for Lemon Quay, Truro.

Structures Residency - (Published or amended 2018-01-08)Print details for Structures Residency  CACD id E.9980

Saturday, 10th February 2018 until Saturday, 24th February 2018

Structures is a two-week evolving exhibition and residency of international artists whose practice is informed by networks, frameworks and systems. Bringing together artists from the UK, Europe, and the US, the residency facilitates an exchange of methods, approaches and ideas. The artists will work together in the upper gallery, alongside a schedule of talks, discussions and workshops on all aspects of structures – whether manmade or natural – programmed by the artists and the gallery’s curatorial team.
The residency will involve practitioners at varying stages of their careers across all disciplines; painters, film-makers, sculptors, installation artists and curators, united by their work being informed by structures, rules or data.
The lower gallery will present a static exhibition of work previously made by each of the artists, to illustrate their usual practice and give a context to their time in the residency. In the upper gallery, one half of the space will be an evolving exhibition of work made by the artists during the residency, either individually or collaboratively. The other half will be an open-plan, flexible studio space, with tables, stools and storage for each artist. The open nature of studio and exhibition in one space will enable conversations between visitors and artists.
A daily programme of talks and workshops will take place in the studio space at the close of each day, from 16.00. Details will be listed on our website.

Up-cycled Jewellery Workshop - (Published or amended 2018-01-05)Print details for Up-cycled Jewellery Workshop CACD id E.9979

Thursday, 1st February 2018

Join us for a creative evening and make something fabulous from my sparkly stash of beads. All materials are provided and if you have your own precious treasures bring them along to turn into something amazing.
Suitable for all ages and abilities. No previous experience needed - just a willingness to chill out, have fun and maybe make some new friends along the way.
NB - this can lead to a life-long obsession with scouring charity shops for beautiful things to turn into wearable art but I accept no responsibility if this happens or you change your shopping habits accordingly - also a great way to make totally unique presents for friends and family (although you will probably decide to keep everything you make).
£15 first workshop and then £10 if you come back for more fun with us.
