Meet the resident artists - 20 May 2021
Opening celebration & meet the maker: 20th May, 18:00-20:00
Join us for drinks, nibbles and a chat with Dave, Dawn, Derek and Lee
Our resident artists Dave Pentin, Dawn Dance, Derek Hayes and Lee Kellgren will be exhibiting their latest work. An eclectic mix of paintings and prints, their work is inspired by the landscapes and urban areas where they live and sketch.
Dave Pentin is a design graduate of Falmouth School of Art, who loves to get his hand's dirty experimenting with oil paints and acrylic inks. He will be running a full days workshop (£75) teaching his unique technique on the 6th of June.
Dawn Dance grew up in the rugged South West peninsular of Cornwall. She trained at Falmouth School of Art followed by a Fashion and Textiles degree at Kingston upon Thames. She has taught a wide range of art and design-based courses in Further and Secondary education alongside running her own businesses as a decorative artist, antiques restorer and gilder.
Dawn returned to Cornwall in 2016 and gave up teaching to concentrate on painting the landscape she knows so well.
Derek Hayes is an award-winning animator, currently teaching at Falmouth University, and an artist who likes to wrestle with the lessons of the great masters of art.
Lee Kellgren is a Cornwall-based printmaker specializing in limited-edition etchings and now also working in oil paint.
Our resident artist's exhibition runs from 20 may - 6 June.
Their studios will also be open much of this time if you want to pop in for a chat.
