Our new video! | 21 March 2018

Over this winter, work began on filming activity at Cornwall Contemporary for a short film about the gallery and our artists. Funded by Creative Cultivator and filmed by Three S Films, filming focused on hanging Maggie Matthews’ paintings in the gallery, chatting to Alasdair Lindsay in his studio, watching Neil Pinkett painting outside on the cliffs at Cape Cornwall and Kristin Vestgard’s private view at the gallery.

The night The Guardian came for dinner. | 26 May 2016

As I have people over for dinner this evening, I was wondering what to cook when I remembered a recipe that I haven’t used in a while. Only snag was I’ve lost the recipe. Luckily it was a recipe that was featured in The Guardian when they did a three page feature on the gallery in the Saturday Guardian newspaper in 2013. 

Cornwall Contemporary art gallery was featured in the Saturday Guardian newspaper in the Get Togethers section featuring a dinner party at Sarah Brittain-Mansbridge's house. The guests included artists Neil pinkett, Daphne McClure, Emma McClure, Janet Lynch and Maggie Matthews. The photographer was Guardian photographer Jim Wileman.

The photographer Jim Wileman was sent to my house where some of my artists and I were having a dinner party. Neil Pinkett, Daphne McClure, Janet Lynch, Emma McClure and Maggie Matthews were just a few of the artists there. We had a wonderful evening with a lot of laughs – despite all getting a tad hungry whilst waiting for our food to be photographed!
