Our 2014 Exhibition Programme
We have a fabulous programme of exhibitions throughout 2014, including painting, studio ceramics, sculpture and handmade jewellery by Cornwall and the UKs leading contemporary artists and craftspeople. Exhibitions include Neil Davies, Gillies Jones Glass, Breon O’Casey, Matthew Lanyon, Chris Keenan, Matthew Chambers and Tracy and Michael Rees. Don’t forget to keep up to date with all the goings on here at NC via our monthly art blog.

New Craftsman proudly continues to be the Leach Pottery’s nominated town centre stockist of the new Leach Tableware. Handmade and fired in St Ives, each piece is made with local clay and is designed for function and beauty. Available throughout the year.
Matthew Chambers - 16 August to 12 October
From 16 August and throughout the St Ives September Festival, we are proud
to present an exhibition of sculptural ceramics by Matthew Chambers.
Chambers’ intriguingly complex geometric stoneware combines traditional
processes with a love of constructivist art and draws influence from the
work of Barbara Hepworth, Bridget Riley and the sculptural paintings of
Love and Memory | Tracy and Michael Rees - 18 October to 15 November
This autumn we are proud to present a joint exhibition by painters Tracy and Michael Rees. Tracy Rees’s delightfully witty paintings of our favourite domestic creatures in everyday settings are presented alongside Michael Rees’s offbeat, imagined portraiture, which echoes the cultural, social and physiological attributes of L'Art Brut.
Tate St Ives Commission Designer Range from Artist Emma Jeffryes
to Commemorate their 21st year
In celebration of Tate St Ives’ 21st birthday, longstanding New Craftsman artist Emma Jeffryes has been commissioned to create artwork for a limited edition commemorative mug and birthday bag. Emma’s gorgeously quirky images of St Ives bay have become synonymous with the town and have made her one of West Cornwall’s most popular painters.
The mug will be available from the re-opening of the gallery on 17 May 2014, exclusively from the Tate St Ives shop. The 21st Birthday bag, which will be given away exclusively to visitors buying a combined ticket, will be available from 20th June while stocks last.
