St. Ives, Cornwall by Joe Skinner Photography
I took advantage of the ArtPass which gives unlimited admission to the Tate, Newlyn Art Gallery, the Leach pottery and Barbara Hepworth's studio and garden and had a visual feast. Surprisingly one of the things I saw that left a big impression was the newly built studio at the Leach Pottery, rather than any particular piece of work:
I also took time to visit the commercial galleries and, judging by the mailing list, followed two fellow bloggers into the Porthminster gallery where I fell for the work of Sarah Perry whose ceramics captured the colours and textures of the Cornish coast.
These galleries vary so much; for me three stood out, for not only the work on display but also in their approach to potential customers. (There's a lot of grovelling out there!!!!) They were different in personality and set up but were interesting and comfortable places to expore the work on display. I think another post is needed to describe them in more detail!
