Matthew Lanyon | Beyond The Mark
with Breon O’Casey, Matthew Chambers and John Maltby

13th September to 11th October 2014

Matthew Lanyon | Beyond The Mark Breon O’Casey Matthew Chambers John Maltby

As part of the 2014 St Ives September Festival, we present an exhibition of new paintings by Matthew Lanyon, prints and jewellery by Breon O’Casey and sculptural ceramics by Matthew Chambers and John Maltby.

Celebrated West Cornwall artist Matthew Lanyon, son of St Ives Modernist Peter Lanyon, will be exhibiting his new collection of works entitled Beyond The Mark. Breon O’Casey was a leading figure of 20th century St Ives art. His talent as a jeweller, painter, weaver, printmaker, engraver and sculptor marked him out as one of the world’s most original and prolific artist. Works in this exhibition are from the O’Casey estate, many of which have been held in the USA and never seen before in the UK. Graduate of the Royal College of Art Matthew Chambers’ complex geometric stoneware draws influence from the work of Barbara Hepworth, Bridget Riley and the sculptural paintings of Mondrian. John Maltby is one of Britain's most respected and collected ceramic artists. His visually distinctive figures of birds, angels, warriors, horses and other creatures are influenced by the works of Pablo Picasso, Paul Klee, Henry Moore and Alfred Wallis.

This exhibition opens with the start of the St Ives September Festival, 13 to 27 September, and continues until 12 October.

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 Mondrian.


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.
