It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Apologies for so shamelessly starting the season early, but our latest exhibition by Wendy Horner so beautifully complimented the silver and gold tones so customarily associated with Christmas that we had to put our Christmas stock out on display. The sparkly vibe in the gallery has also prompted us to get our arses into gear early this year and announce our late night shopping events and christmas opening hours. So here goes... We will be opening for two Saturday evenings (November 27th and December 4th) to coincide with Helen Trevaskis latest exhibition and the Penryn town council's annual light switch. The latter is going to be...

A little bit of rebellion

A little bit of rebellion

In the summer, we heard the exciting news that a book festival would take place in Falmouth. As many of you know, we have stocked a variety of book genres from Cornish authors in the gallery shop, so we were keen to be involved. The Writers Collective has office space within our studios, and they were also keen to jump on the tails of the festival to highlight the talent of our local authors. The Collective has been trying to run a series of talks from our event space since 2019. However, COVID has called a halt to their plans on...

The Gallery on tour

The Gallery on tour

This summer saw us take the gallery on tour to Falmouth Poly. It was the first event of its kind for us as we don't typically hold mixed shows. However, this exhibition had a different ambition - it was more of a celebration of what we do. At the gallery, we focus on solo exhibitions of up and coming contemporary and abstract local artists. On the 27th of July of this year, we broke that tradition to celebrate all our 2021 exhibitors. The brainchild of our gallery manager, who curated the show, we sent out a request to this years exhibiting...

Staying positive on our birthday

Staying positive on our birthday

Today marks a memorable day in our calendar as The Terrace Gallery has now been trading for a whole year!! We would love to say that our doors have been open for an entire year, but that’s not entirely true, as the lockdown will have shaved off seven months from our calendar by the time we reopen in April.  This last stretch has been the toughest, as we haven’t celebrated our achievement with any of our lovely supporters. Determined not to miss out, we have devised a cunning plan to hold an official first birthday party over the bank holiday...

2021 Emerging artists

2021 Emerging artists

With all the turbulence of 2020, we consciously left the design of our marketing literature until quite late. It now seems that our sixth sense paid off, as just as we were about to press the button to dispatch the artwork to the printers, the COVID restrictions tightened. And Cornwall was thrust into Tier 3. A full lockdown unfortunately followed, bringing with it devastating complications for our exhibiting artists. We had selected January as the perfect month to showcase the collections of three inspiring local artists who are tentatively starting to make headway as professional artists... Currently in the process of collating his portfolio for his graduation from Falmouth...
